Has war gotten too easy for the nation? We can maintain two wars at a time without any really serious impact on the average American. We are in a time and age when the US (and other world powers) maintains a large enough volunteer army that we can declare and maintain a war without the average non-soldier or non-military family really feeling the impact of a prolonged war at home. Have we found a comfortable middle ground where we can maintain a bloody war without it getting bad enough that we dedicate the force neccessary to bring clear success and end the war quickly? Should changes be made to make war more “terrible” so we can endeavor to avoid it more fervently, or fight it more violently to end it faster? What are your thoughts?
