In retrospect after having written that stuff, that may be making it overly complicated.
I find that politics and war are is often overly complicated, but i like the idea.
Lets say your nation is falling apart, the Sky Kingdom's Progressive party advocates that a peace keeping force be sent in to contain the situation (maybe you are a neighboring nation and they are worried about the conflict spilling over). Something goes horribly wrong and two ships end up shooting at each other. The conflict spreads and the leader of the expedition panics and orders an aerial bombardment.
Something like that?
