Not only has the United States assumed the role of world policeman, but the planet’s other countries generally take this role for granted. Every new
crisis, especially of a violent nature, generates an appeal for U.S. intervention, or at least expectation of it.
Assuming that mankind’s lust for war cannot be eliminated - the League of Nations and its United Nations successor stand as utopian monuments to
failure in this naïve desire - what can realistically be done about it?
The answer is that while war will remain inevitable and inexorable, it is both possible and practical to revise the way it is conducted. As the
world’s policeman and supreme warfare state, the United States has a unique prerogative to determine and change the context and structure of present
and future war.
