(October 2014) The United States and 61 other countries signed the Kellogg-Briand Pact, outlawing war! Since the treaty went into effect in 1929, the signatory states have promised not to use war to resolve international ‘disputes or conflicts, whatever their nature or origin.’ (See Wikipedia) Our Constitution says treaties are ‘the supreme law of the land.’ But there is no global authority with the power to enforce international treaties, so we still engage in wars whenever the military-industrial complex finds it profitable. We do not DECLARE these wars, however, because that would be illegal.
