As the war, or the use of the Armed Force for solution of controversies, legally it is forbidden, seno as exercise of foreseen individual or collective self defense as in the Letter of the ONU, and has long time not if manifest only in the interestatal version to produce consequences international, the power of a State cannot be measured only in military terms, but it must beyond consider the capacity of accomplishment of objectives borders for half others that not it war, as the capacity to negotiate for half diplomatists, also exerting the economic power.

Thus, when one is about the internal accomplishment of objectives, in a verticalizada perspective, is said in force, strong State or weak State, as it suggested Holsti; to if taking care of of the capacity of external accomplishment of objectives, in a horizontalizada perspective, it is said in State-power, point around of which was constructed all the system of States.
