Conquest by mere intimidation isn't exactly war, it's extortion.
Killing those who refuse to agree with you isn;t the goal, the goal is to render any form of political/military opposition impotent. Wars would look very differently if the goal of them was to truly exterminate populations. Wars would have been more like the way Nazi Germany tried to exterminate those who they deemed "unwanted".
However, in Sciror there could be wars of extermination, so that the goal truly is to destroy and not to conquer. This would mean of course a whole different set of weapons and tactics.
