Time to End Endless War – 8 steps before the next US war

For some inexplicable reason we seem to always have to have an enemy? When communism fell we jumped to find a new threat, the middle east. Now that’s winding down and we are switching to Iran ? N. Korea? Venezuela? Anybody?. Why does America, the strongest nation in the world, always have to be afraid – and live at war fear level? We should have an army that is so strong it keeps us out of war, not so weak it keeps us in perpetual war.

Before the US gets directly involved in any overseas conflict, we need to do the following steps.
1. Let the combatants solve it – if they can’t
2. Let regional leaders and neighbor countries solve it – if they can’t
3. Let the UN solve it – if they can’t
4. US put pressure on combatants to solve it – if they can’t
5. US put pressure on regional leaders and neighbor countries to solve it – if they can’t
6. US put pressure on the UN to solve it – if they can’t
7. US put pressure on our allies to work with us to solve it.
THEN and ONLY THEN should the US consider getting directly involved.
8. Consider that the cost of one war would end poverty in the US (see CBA’s) . Weigh the two options carefully. Would fighting this war really be better for US security than ending poverty in the country?
