Yes, Virginia, it's war.

Sen. John Kerry:

"The goal of this mission is not to get rid of [Moammar] Gadhafi. That's
not what the United Nations licensed and I would not call it going to
war. This is a very limited operation that is geared to save lives."

When you resort to force to achieve a political aim that you could not achieve through peaceable means, that's war.
