time traveling war

How could you, in any sense, win a time-traveling war?

After you won, you would have to go places and do things.  But even if you captured or killed every opposing time traveler, you could always run into your opponents again.  It just has to be earlier in their time line than in yours.

if you could exhaustively search out their personal time lines, you could avoid them, but it's hardly winning to have to avoid active war zones.
