“We write <wàr> because <war> regularly shows a long vowel according to the
rules. We could write <warr> but this is a change to the wordform that we
dislike, so we choose the other means. An the vowel quality is regular
before -r.

No, it's got a long vowel.”

 

And it’s not a stressed vowel either!
