I'm going out on a limb, here--you're conflating "ending wars" with destroying ideas.
It's not the same--you can never kill ideas.
At the same time, being allies is not tantamount to "British Imperialism;" black-market, illegal human trafficking is not the same as state-endorsed
slavery; One country's choice of government is not (or, should not be) the decision of the victor of a war.
You really need to get a grip on what the difference between a war is and what ideals are--you will never kill racism by pointing a cannon at it, or
destroy the black market (human trafficking, drug trade, etc.) by firing an M4 in its direction, and you will never destroy tyrannical governments by
placing them in the crosshairs of a drone's camera. There will always be this type of behavior in humanity, and if you think that war--which is just
another plague like the rest of them--will fix this, you're nuts.
War is about money and power, coupled with who has the biggest...pentagon, so to speak. It's not about making the world a better place. War very
rarely fixes anything for the long-term, if ever.
