If our supposedly 'free; nations gave our warfighters the option of choosing what conflict to engage in things might be different.
The problem is not that men abide their wholesome, good natural instinct to protect their families and communities. Self-Defense is a basic human right.
The problem is that most people don't know All wars are nothing more than factions of elite Bankers fighting each other for control of acreage.
A critical part of that deception is the absurd idea we've seen in this thread that "Some Wars Are Good & Necessary".
Fight that ignorance, and you do more to move the world toward PEACE than anything else.
