Privatize World Peace?

While surfing the interwebs (brought to you by Al Gore), I came across the latest trailer for the new Iron Man 2 movie, starring Robert Downey, Jr.  Please, take the time to watch at least the first 35 seconds of the trailer.

Now, I know this blog may sound very cliché, but the trailer got me thinking:

Are organized national and supranational governments capable of bringing about the peace that they claim to support and strive for? And if not, why do supposed peace-lovers on the left continue to strive to give these warmongering governments more responsibility in civil affairs?

Instead of all-wise, government bureaucrats marching down our streets in the name of world peace, maybe what this world really needs is a Tony Stark.
