The war between these two countries has been long-drawn-out and episodic.
What does `long-drawn-out' mean in this sentence?
Also, I think, here episodic means events happening sometime.
Please explain it.

For episodic, see the following website:
episodic definition - Dictionary - MSN Encarta
It means it has been going on for a long time, but sometimes it stops for a while.
