This leads us to our third proposition. 3: Democratic targets are more likely to win wars than other kinds of targets.

The likely loser also increases the costs it will have to pay compared to the costs it might have settled on otherwise since it will have to give up the policy at stake as well as compensate the winner for the costs it incurred during the fighting.
