That, and also the change of how the markets work. War did help the economy in the past, but that was back in an era when the US economy was still dependent on industrialization growth. Considering that we now live in a mostly technological-dependent market era (yes, even admist of the bursted dot-com bubble, as we have other predominant areas such as the biotech sector), I fear that war will at least cause a hit on our economy, even if we "hire some man-power to manufacture warheads". A good example would be the Gulf War -- as the economy didn't fare any better IMO, regardless of "pumping up for battle".
