I haven't heard anyone talk about how war benefits us. Many comments present a choice between war and peace. I think that's false.
Would the citizens of the United States support abolishing war if it meant higher fuel prices? I don't think so.
I do not think we will abolish war. At the end of the day, "I" care more about my life and my pocketbook than some nameless, faceless soul in a country I've never visited.
