Outside bursts? If someone doesn’t have calmness they may externally show aggression. Whats a short precise way to describe this? I’m looking for a word!

What’s wrong with “aggression” or “aggressiveness”?

dopeguru's avatar

@janbb Does that automatically mean war?

wrath, hostility, agitation, annoyance, petulance

No, only war means war. I’m not sure I understand your question. There isn’t one word that means both war and anger. Maybe the phrase “acts of aggression “ would cover what you mean as it can be both personal and national.

You could say “military aggression” but that doesn’t necessarily mean the same as war.

I doubt war and anger are even closely related. I think if anybody starts a war it has very little to do with an outburst of anger.
