*Stop supporting dictatorships and repressive militaries; cease U.S. involvement in the internal affairs and elections in other countries.

Without a doubt those who control Washington D.C., who have been the proliferators and facilitators of these ongoing wars to control oil and to generate more profits for the nation's defense industry and weapons manufacturers would fight against any such recommendations with all their might; so the probability of this happening is not great.
We can only hope that, at some point in time, somehow, some way this government will undergo a massive awakening and realize that to continue in this direction is an exercise in futility and one that will surely fail. Sadly, it may take more of these terrorist attacks to convince these leaders to rethink what they are doing. Or, perhaps, when the cost of the massive U.S. military empire becomes unsustainable, and there is no other alternative, enlightened thinking may finally prevail and this country will change its strategies, its objectives and turn in a new direction.
