Hilarious way to get some free CS Rep early.
So i was sitting around waiting to attack Alexander, building a bunch of forts a long strategic positions around his border when I got a crazy idea.
I wonder if I could bribe him into attacking Venice and Stockholm. I traded him a bunch of my Luxury resources to attack them and he did. Immediately, Venice and Stockholm, being completely in the dark about my shady underhanded dealings, requested assistance against the EVIL ALEXANDER!
So then I turn around and declared war on him, immediately cancelling the deals where I give him luxury resources, and Siam to the rescue! Lol too funny.
Edit: this is also after I pledged to protect those two city states lol.

Yup, I'm 120/60 with both venice and stockholme now.
He didn't even make peace with them right after I attacked him. That's not to say that there aren't measures I could have taken, IE paying them gold so they become peace-blocked with an alliance (you would need the gold) or positioning my units in front of his units so that I complete the war quest on the same turn that I declare war with him.
