War may be an industry, but it is not a capitalist one. You cannot blame capitalism for anything paid for with tax dollars.

I don't have a particular stance on this issue, but I just want to point out that it is possible for multiple things to be to blame. Few things have just one cause.

I think this analysis is literally correct, but I have to wonder what we would do ideally when war is necessary as a response to external aggression.

War is never necessary as a response to external aggression.

You are wrong. War is necessary.

War is absolutely necessary. Did you read my entire sentence?

I did. How important is it to you to prove you are right though? Because I'm not going to believe anything you write after this.

It's not important at all, internet fren. That has nothing to do with me and everything to do with the fact that you're going around this site being a disingenuous ass to everyone you can.

I wish you god speed in never believing anything anyone ever says again.

You just "practice" a lot, and continuously upgrade and replace equipment that will never see a real battle. You scare governments into believing they need to buy more firepower, regardless of whether it will ever be used.

Legislate away the profit motive. If the war profiteers can no longer make bank on it, they will stop starting wars for profit. That would end all U.S. wars at least.

That’s not how capitalism works.

cancel odious debt. if big banks worry they won't get repaid debt from countries that use it for illegal wars, they will be less likely to want to lend it out, great.

War is a state of mind, no matter the socioeconomic system.

Treat the cause, not the symptom.
