Interesting you say that, I'm always thinking that every single Israeli must be fighting in some way or another given the number they have vs the movement they create.
The United States doesn't belong to it's citizens, it belongs to free speech of money.
Also, I was reading something very interesting that when a nation achieve the military supremacy and the world dominance of the US, it's still forced to create new enemies because the economy and the structure of society was always geared toward war to achieve such a state of dominance. For instance the US will always be at war (as long as the FED print numbers) because it would collapse otherwise. That's why they will create endless wars (terrorism) and channel money to the real masters while the pleb dies slowly. The other part is by basically being a war-state, you create a shadow government with a lot of power, ressources AND information to keep everybody off their back (SUP NSA,FBI,SEE-EYE-A).
Politicos, who are notorious cowards, will always go the way of the next election victory, free speech of money, and will never have the balls to go against the job creators, those building and selling weapons for the purpose of war and to maintain the status quo until they die.
So given the US political and economical structure and the power they gathered in the military, they will always be fighting someone else's war.
