    That was the rule for a while:  the armies go find  afield and fight.

    However, first, I'd recommend taking a look into the Halabja massacre and the Hama massacre, if you haven't already.  Of course, there's always the holocaust.

    Ideally, only combatants get killed in wars, but the targeting of civilians resisting central government in mass killing is a whole other step beyond.

    Second, you might check out Insignia.  It's a sci fi book where teenagers are recruited to fly remote aircraft to fight wars remotely for corporate alliances.  Your comment reminded me of it.
