Funding Wars

Wars, like other government projects, require funding. They must compete for funding, just like other mega-projects promoted by lobbyists. The lobbyists with the biggest purses to sell their wars both to the politicians and the public are the ones promoting resource wars with the highest financial return. As Dr. Bethune put it, It is the secret of all wars: profit.
