    lets say two countries having some serious disagreement and things getting tension, definetely they will launch the war against each other. who make this decision do leader alone should decide or let the citizens decide, they must deny that one person make the decision, but the decision must be from the strong man with his EGO, so what if there is votes from peoples to decide.

    This is a lot more complicated than it sounds.  In general the people have no idea of what is really going on.  Also the people will react with emotion.  If something terrible happens they are likely to want lash out.  There is a possibility that if going to war was left up to the people that we would fight more wars and not less.
    What we need to do is to have everyone personally involved in any war we wage.  Right now America's wars are things to debate, discuss, or ignore by most of the American people; they are not involved.  If there was an automatic 10% tax increase anytime our troops were sent to fight or if there was a 100% draft so everyone's child was at risk; then you would see a lot more soul searching before troops were sent.
