Other countries, like Pakistan, are beginning to negotiate to bridge the differences among countries, as in the Middle East. The United States no longer needs to be entrapped in quagmires.
With the next administration, our country might be able to focus more on infrastructure issues like replacing outdated water systems, repairing roads and bridges, improving housing and transportation systems, all of which can be done as routine and not crisis-oriented work.
Additionally, the country still has unresolved social issues that need to be resolved to bring about unity in the country – race disparities; aging population needs, lessening poverty, and so forth.
The United States still needs to monitor and advise on world affairs and expand its military capabilities. However, with the amount of work needed to be done domestically to meet immediate and future needs, Americans should be too busy to become engaged in routine wars and skirmishes.
