This could be because of one of two things:
  - We don't have anything useful to build (can't optimize for food so
that we can build settlers), so we build barracks instead.
  - We have some spurious want for attackers all over the place that leads
us to build barracks.

The former is more likely. Both are actual problems that should be fixed

I do not think that the complex algorithms hinted at by Ross will do any
good whatsoever in any case. Fix the underlying problems.
