If men are brothers, then all wars are civil wars...

"A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same nation state or republic, or, less commonly, between two countries created from a formerly-united nation state.  A nation may refer to a community of people who share a common language, culture, ethnicity, descent, or history.  All human beings share a common descent and history, so all human beings belong to the same nation, which is currently a house divided into many parts.  All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers."
~Francois Fenelon

"Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?"
~Victor Hugo

"Either men will learn to live like brothers, or they will die like beasts." ~Max Lerner
