Indeed. Everyone keeps referring to what we are doing as an inducement to war. It is not, no more than a franchise moving into a small town area is a war with the local store owners. 95% of the time, the tiny locals simply do not have the power or the resources to do anything about it, and instead of finding an alternative to survival, they refuse whatever offer has been made to them and tend to go down fighting, wasting the precious few resources they have.
Is it unfair? Is it immoral? Are both claims utterly subjective? Of course. It isn't about fairness or morality. It is about behaviour. The pack that controls the most territory ("controlling" not to be mistaken with "living in") isn't going to let some piddly little upstart dictate the rules of the forest. They will either fall in line or they will be dealt with.
