War on Ourselves

What country has ever used a weapon of mass destruction? Who develops most of them? Who got them into Iran and the Middle East?

Regardless, we need to eliminate the reasons for war, not the weapons.

War requires extreme hatred and jealousy.

How hard would it be to create an international policy that helps eliminate extreme disparities of education and opportunity, while still preserving our conveniences? Seems easier and cheaper than war. And, without those extreme hatreds, war as we know it, would cease to exist.

When will we learn that history never truly repeats itself? In the new global, networked economy, victory in the Middle East will eventually hurt the economy and safety of America.

Or maybe genocide will keep them from continuing to attack us. Maybe we should round up up Americans of Arab descent and put them in camps - just in case?

I guess we'll just have to keep finding out the hard way that war, as we know it, is a losing battle.
