Are there any principles to know for sure if party A made aggression on party B; or B party made aggression on A in a war?

There are no principles, war by definition is aggression. If both sides acquiesce that they are in a war.
If one side is simply the defender then it is simply an attack, not a war.
When you get to the point when you don't remember who started the fight or why, it's probably time to stop.
I always find that to be difficult to ascertain. If someone hits you first are they the aggressor? A witness that only saw the punch would certainly say so, but perhaps it was the challenge you issued before the punch that was the first instance of aggression and the punch then only an escalation. Like any truth it's often a matter of perspective. I'm sure their are guidelines in law but again it all depends on interpretation.
If your nose is bleeding your the defender.
If your knuckles are bruised your the aggressor.
Hi friend tobey100
I meant countries; peoples not individuals.

Me too. Funny thing is that in history, the one with the nose bleed usually if not always comes out the winner and the aggressor with the bruised knuckes is the loser. War is a funny thing (pardon the expression) in that the attacked, at least for the last 300 years, triumphs over the attacker eventually. This should provide a historical lesson to all aggressors but.....I'm not holding my breath.
North Korea is clearly the aggressor. South Korea should launch an attack on them right away, otherwise they will feel like they can continue to do this and get away with it.
Stealing oil is never a defensive position. It is always an aggressive war crime.
The birds and fish didnt steal it.. it was poured on them! They will be glad to give it back! Oil is a stupid arguement for war and agression.. just like religion.. but greed and religion are the two major cuases of war through out time. No way to stop war as long as those two remain.. and they will!

As some-one said to the question. "Is any-one else in the west fed up of america's war mongering?" that 'we're already in a third world war due to all the skirmishes that the major powers are involved in'. But does this constitute a world war, or a pre cursor to a world...
