Boost a declining US economy before a true depression (which would
require a proper, full-scale war to emerge from, just like the
previous 2 depressions).
To exercise more thorough control over the drug trade in Pakistan
To push surveillance and snooping technology and legislature
through in short order to use against groups that may pose a
threat to the current political powers.
These are three reasons that have actually been used in the

Part of this is to ensure that the infrastructure (the environment
in which you live) can support these goals. The government certainly
is a part of that. Discussing the actions of our government (and
the sub-obvious goals of it) are most certainly relevant to
