Then we probably wouldn't have progressed nearly as much. Many technologies have resulted from war; Military R&D creates a vast amount of technological progress. In other words, the pressing concern of war often drives the development of technology.

Not to cut the Iranian's sails...but is this really any better than the flotation device bazooka someone here made?

Now imagine the trillions wasted on making the rich and powerful even more rich and powerful through the destruction of resources going into research. We might be far, far ahead of where we are now.

If all the resources destroyed in the wars of the past 100 years alone were put to the good of man there would be no poverty or hunger, but of course that's not how our system works. The system works so wealth is transferred from the bottom to the top (the billionaires of the world having increased their wealth to 6 trillion USD since the so called economic 'crisis' is proof that all governments are facilitating the greatest transfer of wealth in history ), the middle and the bottom always lose out while the top (whose children and family rarely die fighting) become fatter and fatter.

Fortunately this system is running out of time.
