US wars fail to achieve objectives but hey, they are good business.

Modern warfare has become a highly professional enterprise whose business is killing. It has reached the point where its efficiency is measured in body counts. Its peace-keeping potential depends on its ability to convince friend and foe alike of the nation’s unlimited death-dealing power. … The boomerang effect in war is becoming more obvious: the higher the body count of dead Vietnamese, the more enemies the United States acquires around the world; likewise, the more the United States must spend to create another manipulative institution – cynical dubbed “pacification” – in a futile effort to absorb the side effects of war.
