World Peace is Possible Now. Indeed, in 2001, the World Bank and the United Nations stated the reasonableness of our workable moral strategy:“Afghanistan needs about $9 billion during the next fiveyears to rebuild after 20 years of war, the United Nations and World Bank have calculated.” That is only $1.8 billion per year for five years, only 0.45% of a U.S. Annual $400++ billion military budget. And via ourworkable moral strategy half of this cost would have been contributed by all other developed nations. Why was the $9 billion not used first for the people of Afghanistan instead of destruction? By April, 2004, donors had already pledged $8.2 billion. Some Afghan regional lords were asking for about $25 billion.
Exploitation leads to wars. When nations and their people, and regions are at peace, helping one another, they advance! It is obvious!
