We all pretty much know what's friend. I am not sure though whether we have any sort of clue about what's enemy. Someone would simply thought of oposite to friend. Wrong. We either intentionaly create an enemy or give reason for one to become. In both cases we act wrongly. Also remember friend can turn into an enemy at the drop of a hat..

Pretty much it's like Richter scale from friend to enemy. Boo hoo!

Better a good enemy than a bad friend.

Can you tell an enemy from a friend without knowing what a friend is?

I still think debates on enemies are too special and refer or have their place within military field. Obviously there are informal groups organised along the line of army - but still are quite limited and subjected to force and violance use. I can hardly imagine an enemy being fitted into common and ordinary life of civil people.
