There's a Japanese parable about a Japanese boy who was up on the slopes minding the rice fields when he saw in the distance a tsunami roaring towards his village. He knew he had no chance of warning the villagers (and his family) in time, so he set fire to the rice fields, knowing everyone would run up to put out the fire, and thereby saving the village.
Moral: sometimes crying wolf is the highest act of intelligence and morality.
Well, yours truly certainly isn't a saint, but I know it's time to cry wolf that our country is now up to its neck in TOTAL WAR.

(1.) They don't tax group A, but have back breaking taxes on group B.
