If we expect to hold on to our status as a super power and avoid a nuclear holocaust
What I don't seem to understand is why everyone is hell bent on having another World War?

What I don't seem to understand is why everyone is hell bent on having another World War? What is the point of it all when you destroy the ONLY planet we live on currently.
We can't just say, "Well we regret nuking this planet now since we had our differences and could've avoided it. I think next time we disagree on something we will be more diplomatic. Alright, the only thing left to do now is mop up and move the remaining survivors to planet B."
There is ONLY "1" planet that is capable of supporting life and the rest of the world is hell bent on destroying it for personal gain...
I pray there is a more intelligent species watching us because I think it's time they scrap this little experiment and start over with the human race.
We have learned nothing.

I hope this hasn't already been posted.
I came across this video today and thought it was worth a share. Noam Chomsky gives his take on President-Elect Donald Trump, and touches on future US - Russian relations, NATO's presence on the Russian border, the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine, and the looming threat of global nuclear war.
I couldn't agree more. With the current tensions in the air between the United States and Russia (also China), I don't have much hope that things will end well for us. China and Russia are tight, and the US is being slowly ushered to the door. If we expect to hold on to our status as a super power and avoid a nuclear holocaust, then we must focus on diplomacy and better relations. Not strife. This isn't about ego, politics, or petty nonsense. This is about the survival of the human race. Not only with the threat of nuclear war, but with global warming as well.

A prior poster mentioned the costs involved in war...... like money has a thing to do with it.
How can money be a factor when it is printed up as needed?
