The wt points to king david lying or otherwise decieving enemies w whom israel was at war as using theocratic war strategy. Lying to enemies with whom one is at war wasn't limited to israel. All nations did it. It is being done now, and has been done for eons. It's just another facet of war strategy.
However, lying to the eneny is no more theocratic than is running him through w a bayonet, disintegrating him w a nuclear bomb, or starving him to death. There is nothing theocratic about it, unless priests, kings and presidents are divinely mandated. The wt adoption of this tactic as policy places it at the same level as any govt on earth today. It has, a long time ago abandoned spirit as a supporting or guiding force.
