It kind of happened when Nation Building became the popular thing for Govt.
I see it as a Progressive trap, baited for the those that go to war.
It serves many purposes.
First, it spreads the ideals of the waring nation.
Second, it allows the Govt to spend money in ways that would make your head spin.
Third, it funds the friendly companies to the corrupt Govt. One hand washing the other.
Forth, it makes the whole War thing less tragic, as after the enemy is "bombed", they are helped back up. That, to me, is mind boggling.
Now, this is not owned solely by either party, as both display and operate under this premise.
I say, if you go to war, scorched earth, and back home for a beer at the end.
