The solutions are easy, but the Democrats and Republicans will oppose them so we have to break with them.

1) fight for the immediate and total withdrawal of all US military, mercenary and security police forces (like the CIA) to US home bases and their demobilization and disarming.

2) press for a Constitutional amendment declaring that the US will never again engage in wars of aggression and laws making it a capital offense to plan or commit wars of aggression or to lie to Congress in the pursuit of wars of aggression.

3) call for convening an International War Crimes Tribunal to investigate US crimes against humanity and war crimes by US officials.
