As far as I remember a perpetual war against an unseen and unsurmountable enemy is one of the first Orwellian steps towards a global dictatorship
or maybe I need to re read 1984
of course thats a highly conspiratorial attitude, a simpler reason why somone may wish to start a war in which there will be a minimum number of
allied casualties is that during a war statistics show support for the government in power goes up.
you are also able to bury information you'd rather the public didn't get hold of, you can pass legislation that may be unpopular or have
ramifications you don't feel the public will support "in the interest of national security"
In fact I can see plenty of reasons why a government might want a country to feel at war with an invisable enemy whos actions are only recounted to us
by the government.
Can't you Thomas?
