/* Deep Events */
'''''Casus belli''''' is a Latin expression meaning the justification for acts of [[war]]. Casus is related to the English word "case," and can mean "case," "incident", or "rupture". Belli means bellic ("of war").

In the case of [[resource war]]s, open declaration of the real cause (i.e. greed) is generally not politic to declare openly, so a ''casus belli'' must be manufactured. [[False Flag Attacks]] are standard fare in this case. [[Deep politics]] researcher, [[Peter Dale Scott]] has powerfully argued "As long as we have a war machine in washington, and every time it needs a war, it gets its war by deep events... Since 1950, ''every single'' major US war has been precedicted by one."<ref>http://www.unwelcomeguests.net/687</ref>
