Currently AI builds barracks before building any offensive units.
This is proven to be better than not building barracks at all.
So the solution should be about:
* estimating how many offensive units a given city will build
* redirecting military spending via few selected cities
This is strategic planning, something that AI lacks altogether. Should you have
any ideas on how to implement it _simply_ please open the discussion.
