Democracies as likely to fight as authoritarian states (just not with each other) 2. If widely supported, democracies in conflict will engage for long periods of time. 3. Democratizing states have a high propensity for violence (ethnic violence) 4. Deomcracies have supported rebellion against democratically elected governments 5. Democracies do engage each other militarily in a covert manner Protracted Conflict Hostile interactions between actors over long periods of time with sporadic outbreaks of open warfare (e.g. Israel-Palestine, India-Pakistan, US-USSR) Actors Learn from their Conflict and Crisis Experiences Victorious actors tend to use the same strategy in next conflict/crisis Losers likely to be more coercive during next conflict/crisis
