I suspect this issue has been addressed before, so apologies if I'm covering old ground here, but if Marcus wanted a war with the Klingons why didn't he simply use transwarp beaming to wipe them out at long distance? Or did he want a more "conventional" conflict, the kind that would garner public approval and facilitate an even greater military buildup of the fleet?
He wanted to reshape Earth society by way of this war. Wiping the Klingons out from a distance wouldn't have served his goals.
