Does it really matter what it's called?

What would you call that little incident in Estonia a couple years back? Would you call that war or protest?

And even with the current Israeli/Palestinian hacking 'skirmish'...why is that just a 'protest' and not a war?

Sure, BBC might call it a 'protest', but two sides fighting with each other, trying to defend their own systems yet at the same time attacking those of the other side...sounds a lot like war to me.
