概要 "There is continued discussion in international relations surrounding the existence (or not) of the 'democratic peace' - the idea that democracies do not fight each other.

Second, threatened territories must be defended by large, standing land armies and these armies can then be used as forces for repression during times of peace. Finally, domestic political bargaining is dramatically altered during times of territorial threat; with government opponents joining the leader in promoting the security of the state.
