Fascinated by Fireworks

Wondering why politicians often seem so eager to find excuses for war, it occurred to me that a state of military readiness requires stocks of various explosives which are likely to have only a limited shelf life. It must seem wasteful just to throw them away when they pass their 'use by' date. We could enjoy the flashes and bangs produced by dropping them on someone, so that's what we do.
