US troops to remain in Afghanistan until as late as 2024. Will we ever end our imperial wars and curb military spending?

YES! - We can't afford to continue paying for wars while cutting domestic spending. That's how countries collapse!

NO! - The Military–Industrial-Congressional-Complex will never allow that to happen. There is too much money to be made.

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.

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.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
