War doesn't boost the economy. It can inflate GDP but that doesn't mean the economy is doing well.

Large numbers of jackasses may occasionally be motivated by a war to increase production. However, war is not in that instance the cause of prosperity, rather, jackassery is the cause of the previous poverty.
