Put a lid on the power of corporations/people and you'll stop the wars.

Behind every war is a business case that benefit a few; typically at the expense of the larger society.

In the case of the recent Iraq war, think those whose bonuses or investments would benefit from the 2 trillion dollar cost of the war. Who pays the 2 trillion? You and me! They don't care about the killed, wounded and the log term impact on our society either.

Alireza "says it all in 4 lines" -the US plays the worlds Policeman - we have a" 600 billion Military industrial complex" which is active on a full time basis despite a Recession - In Recent history - "The Gulf War" "IraQ" "Afghanistan" Despite a multi billiion dollar deficit, we manage to justify maintaining forces around the Globe - we are always present in these locations in many cases without justification.The loss of our young men in the Military seems to be just a numbers game.
