Actually, politics isn't involved in every little decision the military makes.
Well as mentioned earlier, politics wasn't involved in what those groups did, and they came out on top. See, politics isn't necessary for decisions like that.
Who said weapons had to be provided by a government? Manufacturers don't rely on the government to get their work done. Besides, why would we need a government to make the weapons and food? Also, I never said you had to stay in the town to get what you needed. Also, there's another tactic that can be deployed when all else fails: retreating to fight another day. Also, nobody would be dumb enough to leave their supplies within the vision field of the enemy. Obviously, they'd be hidden, also, when you have weapons, you can defend the defenseless.
Like I said, who said ALL the resources had to come from the same place?
Well you don't need a government to train people to fight. You just need the skills of a fighter. Also, like I said, if worst comes to worst, you can retreat and regroup. Also, 10000 is a pretty high number. It's not the highest, but it's pretty high. In the stone age, the government didn't exist, and the cavemen survived for a long time. The cavemen didn't need a government to discover agriculture. I never said you had to have one single leader, you can have partners who aid in the leading of the army. Also, armies don't require "law and order", only a drive and will to fight. An army doesn't require a government either. It's not a government if you don't have politics, elections, authority, or a presidency and/or monarchy. If you have a non-political society, you just have a group of people who live together and protect one another.
