Default How to end all wars

I read a quote today from a great American patriot :

"I believe in compulsory canibalism . If people were required to eat everything they kill there would be no more wars ."

I believe this rule already applies in the highlands of Papua New Guinea and would not prevent war for very long as they get used to eating other people.

Exclamation End Wars

Two simple ways to end war:

In war, old men argue and young men die.

Let the young men stay home and make the policy and the old men go out and fight.

OR

Better yet

Adopt the method of Lysistrata.

The reason men fight is because the women are watching.

This went a long way toward ending the Viet Nam war. When the girls at home stopped supporting it, it just faded away.

If every member of Congress and their sons and daughters had to go and fight in our wars, there would never be another one.
