Defining resolve II

I think I'm getting somewhere with this. After a _lot_ of reading, most of it articles from the 70's and 80's, I think the two essential components to resolve are (1) willingness of a domestic population to bear the costs of war (the costs being something that can be estimated ex ante) and (2) the extent of an actor's risk-acceptance (which isn't observable and which an actor has an incentive to misrepresent).
