Abstract:

The author believes that wars are calculated political acts on the part of nations. The termination of wars involves political acts on the part of the participants. There are many factors which lead to the termination of war. Nations need to develop a clear set of goals as they pertain to war and must be able to communicate these goals to the enemy. There are a variety of constituencies which a national leader must satisfy and from whom he must have support to successfully conduct a war. Included in these are military advisors, the general public, and the news media, elected officials, and government employees. Each of these parties can influence a leader to seek peace.
