The perpetual war economy will continue as long as the corporate party's really retrograde Republicans and deeply depraved Democrats keep voting together to provide their 99% popular vote mandates for more war; no actual healthcare... and no attempt to mitigate catastrophic climate change.

We will have to shift away from fossil fuels before we'll see an end to these seemingly endless wars. Just as Thom indicated, it is only for the oil these countries have, and no other reason, or at least not the primary reasons, only those expounded to the duped American public. That and get big corporate money out of politics so that our Representatives actually start representing the people again. Then, add to the list regain control of our media so that we can hear a semblance of truth and not lies and distortions of fact. Only then will we be able to regain a semblance of real democracy in this country.
