Since the US uses remote drones and missiles and airstrikes and very rarely sends in ground troops, this won't even happen. The US troop causalities are completely dwarfed by the casualties of their victims. Pretty soon they won't even need drone operators because they'll use AI.

I agree, the use of drones and AI make even the eventuality of unpopular war a microscopic probability. There is no fixing it without removing the United States as a global super power, and a nation-state.

Also, proxy armies (ISIS is a good example). There are always mercenaries, for lack of a better term, available. The empire always finds a way.

This AI and drone apparatus is going to a point in the future that wars will be played with joystick like those E-Sports streamings. And remind me the idea that Olympics and Worlds Cups and international sports tournaments are supposed to "substitute" wars (in the colonial mentality).
