War is certainly terrible, although it isn't necessarily terrifying if

"1 [C or U] (violent action which causes) extreme fear:
They fled from the city in terror.
There was sheer/abject terror in her eyes when he came back into the room.
Lots of people have a terror of spiders.
What he said struck terror in my heart (= made me very frightened).
The separatists started a campaign of terror (= violent action causing fear) to get independence.
Heights have/hold no terrors for me (= do not frighten me)."

This is so way off topic for nanog that I'm going to stop here.
