Centralized planner (for aggressive units + bodyguards) would be nice but
not crucial.  I think it is easier to start from the other end: war target
selector.  Choose a city to attack.  Then each city could think "how can
we help the war effort".  Then add some code which makes AI accumulate
some forces rather then engage in the build-send-die-build-send-die cycle.
