Americans love going to war.Its the history ever since the American Revolution of 1775 there has not been a single generation in America's history that has not known war.
This is epecially true after 1945. Wars have fueled a war machine economy.From General Electric building nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers and missile ships to Boeing and McDonald -Douglas building warplanes. I believe that we go to war because, like drug addicts, we like it. No one has ever won a war. What problems did war ever solve? None. What misery did they create? Loads. When you are standing pointing a weapon at someone who is pointing one at you, you will live more intensely at that moment then at any other time in your life. We go to war because we like to. It gives us a sense of dominance. It also fuels the economy. America has prospered during times of war and faltered at times of peace.
