The game of war requires trickery and deception.
 
Lately Iíve heard it argued that we need to tell Councillors that war is not an effective means of conflict resolution.
 
The trouble with this is that War is NOT a means of conflict resolution at all.  Itís not that war is an ineffective means of resolving conflicts. War is the epitomy of large-scale, armed conflict. Wars are not fought to resolve conflict, that is not their function.
 
This is part of the deception. Part of the trickery necessary to get us to support wars.
 
So, what then is the real function of war?
