* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler: The government of the most powerful nation in the world uses false reports of a weaker foreign power having "weapon forges" that were used to supply enemies of the stronger nation as a justification for invading the smaller country to take their oil ... or their magic dagger. Just like [[TheWarOnTerror the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq]], the weapon forges are never found.]]
