War is losing.
This article from medium.com says that war is on the decline, and the number of wars going on are limited to one area of the globe.
There is no reason not to think war could continue to decline. There is no reason not to think that war could end in our time.
I’ve said before: Remember the enemies of this country know that the quickest way to drain the strength of this country is to keep it in perpetual war. That saps our resources, standing in the world, best and brightest young people, and spirit. It also allows the government to silence many of it’s critics – which it often does in even small wars.
So what could replace war? First there are options to war. Here are 8 to start.
Before the US gets directly involved in any way, in any conflict or war, anywhere, we need to do the following 8 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 even consider getting directly involved.
8. But consider too that the cost of one war would end poverty in the US. Weigh the two options carefully. Would fighting this war really be better for US interests than ending poverty in the country?
Before we decide to do another war we should both consider what it does there and what it does HERE. Remember the cost of one middle east war would have ended poverty in the US through CBA’s community bank account. Which would have better protected the interests of this country- bombing over there or no poverty here? That’s the other side of this issue.
This video shows how the cost of one war would end poverty in the US through community bank accounts – by using the interest on the money, not the capital – a penny is never spent, but poverty is eliminated.
