Cost Of War

Before we can have world peace, we have to destabilise the dictatorships and convert them to democracies. When a dictator declares war, he sacrifices nothing. He still lives in luxury. When the citizens of a democracy wage war, they lose their sons. They have to pay for the war out of their own pockets. Granted, those in the military industrial complex are expert in bamboozling the democratic public into wars and military spending that offers little benefit. It seems then odd the USA would go to such lengths just to install a new dictator, Hamid Karzai in Afghanistan.
