What does this mean chaps? Does it simply mean that i'm close enough to invade, and the relative strengths of our militaries makes me a possible invasion target, so their commanders are "wargaming" this scenario? Or do they really mean to attack? I've had this message from civilisations i've been very good friends with since we met, whom i've done nothing to offend, have provided help when asked or supported their world congress proposals etc. On both of these occasions, they ended up attacking someone else a few turns later. I guess they'd built their military up to a peak, making it stronger than mine, and their gold per turn had gone negative, so they had to use it on somebody. They thought about backstabbing us, then decided to go after Ghengis-no-mates instead.
