Permanent War: Official US Policy
America threatens humanity with survival.

Nations don't wage permanent wars and survive. Imagine one calling itself a democracy trying.
Washington spends more on militarism and imperial wars than the rest of the world combined. At the same time, vital domestic needs go begging.
America lives by the sword. One day it'll perish by it. Perhaps so will humanity.
