    Advanced weaponry didn't end WWII and keep the Allies from having to invade Japan?

    Societies have always warred for limited resources and space. Evolution isn't very kind to those that don't compete. The United States has very good weapons and military to avoid wars. The world is full of bad guys. If you don't think so, you weren't paying attention in history class. If you just want to give up and live under someone else's decrees, you are fortunate that others are willing to fight to for their freedoms and prosperity and for yours as well.

    Plenty of humans do try to end war, for instance by supporting a society with no countries and no antagonistic classes.

    Because of greed. Winning wars brings the winner rewards. Losing wars means losing property or land. For example, the Chinese lost a lot of land to Russia in the past, when they could not fight the Russians. Mexico also lost a lot of land, including Texas, California, when they lost the war to the USA. Weapons can also deter other states from attacking.

    The US is the most powerful and advanced military. It keeps China and Russia from even thinking about attacking us.

    impossible to end war. Survival often depends on taking from others (land, water, minerals, etc).

    Jeremiah 10:23 in the Bible answers that when it says "I well know, O Jehovah, that man’s way does not belong to him. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step."

    Theologically speaking, it has been said that the same fallen angel who taught men to forge swords and knives also taught women how to apply makeup.

    Because you can't coexist with people who want to kill you.
