This is not a very good argument.Also, when you look at the connections between the Bush family and companies like Halliburton, etc, it just gives me reason to pause and wonder.
- Haliburton is not an arms dealer.
- The private military contractor arm of Haliburton, KBR, was spun off a decade ago.
- Even when it was part of Halburton,it was less than 10% of their business.
Russ is right that the Pax Americana is one of the most peaceful times in history. If you look at the Wikipedia list, you will see "wars" that don't seem like wars (because the regular wars no longer exist, at least not the way they used to), like the Mexican Drug War. And for those who think it should be a war, why not consider organized crime in the US also a "war"? It had a comparable fatality rate.
