So? What is it going to take for the US to stop it's war mongering. Use the wasted resources on the wars and spend it on it's people? All of the US infrastructure is failing, it's water systems, it's bridges and roads, it's nuclear power plants, it's electrical distribution systems, it's fossil fuel powered power plants, it' economy.

TWO WAYS I can see the U.S stop its war-mongering ways.

1. A greater power emerges with so much force that it becomes clear that the U.S. hasn't a chance of survival.

2. People who are real war-mongers, wake the f$ck up, realize it's futile, a waste of human lives and money, and stop engaging in it.
