    Obviously, to everyone, America has been racking up on military endeavors. Despite the many years that have passed by, many of them have yet to end, and instead, we have seen much more come to join the list.

    During a 240 year period, America has only had 21 years of peace. Sadly, war has become the norm of our society, and the business of many government officials. If you don’t believe me, just look at the following, and I’m sure you will change your mind.

    Unfortunately, war means business in America. There is immense money to be made by the military industrial complex and all of their buddies. If you imagine a day and time in which war will no longer exist, there must be a day when the American population stands up and rises against it. War is not the answer. Obviously, as they have only continued, and the list has only grown throughout the years.
