    Is America really not willing to take the initiative against war ?

    China and India are growing faster in the field of business & technology using their talent and skills. Though China is more ahead than India by their advanced technology. We can see Chinese and Indian trade market spreading quickly day by day through the world in terms of the American market. Europeans and Asians think that America dealing of arms globally. That is why America is not willing to take strong initiative to stop war going to Palestine, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan & Pakistan, otherwise US economy would be down than others.

    We are the largest arms dealer in the entire world. That will never stop.

    When the US tries to take the initiative they get spat on by half of the world, whether it's legitimate or not I can't imagine they're particularly enthusiastic about trying to lead anymore.

    I'm not sure what China and India profiting off cheap unsafe labor with no environmental regulations has to do with America stopping it's arms dealing personally.

    You think the US isn't trying to stop wars because we want to sell weapons to other countries? Pretty sure nations would buy our weapons whether or not they're at war (and could afford more of them without the economic disruption of war). But more than that, I don't think the State Department is subject to arms industry lobbying.

    so, basically, if we step in to stop a war we're bad. if we dont we're profiteers. is that pretty much the gist of this?

    Pretty much.

    If we got to Iraq we are a "Horrible country that invades and destroys, Moving across the earth like a plague, Sucking up all the oil it can"

    If we don't start wars we are "Making them happen in the shadows by selling guns"

    It's a lose/lose really.

    ehm not really, it simply cannot afford another war, it is a state run by money and if there are no money nothing can be done wars included.
    The constructive troll!

    That has to do with implication regarding allies, partners, world opinion and that war equals a costs and less to do with US arms dealing which is a huge part of its economy.
    After misstakes regarding the strategy in Iraq 2 and Afghanistan instigated but in no means limited to the US, the US is reluctant to engange in another military endevour.
    The EU is as always cautious or unable to do anything by itself.

    I personally call it a brief break of sanity.

    OP, this is your first post. Do us all a favor and make it your last.

    If not, then please do a shred of research (or logical thought at least) the next time you create a nonsensical topic.
