Are you referring to the War of the Apes? That was a war that erased half of the Ape population in the fist Orangutan conflict. It is nature's way. Whose population are you referring to? In Vietnam the generals stated that they wanted to bomb them into the Stone Age. There was the view of, "kill them all; and let God sort them out." Europe has gone through its epoch of carnage of war, and no war has ever been fought on these land. There is the ongoing war against Indigenous peoples, the War of 1812, the Spanish American War, and the Civil War. This land has had over 100 years of peace and development. The population of the US is not threatened by the results of war, so, population control is not an issue, but only if you are the original inhabitants of this land.

War is another way Nature fights overpopulation. I believe that, sadly, it will take some form of aggression to stabilise population.
I am worried about the reduction in vegetation (vide Amazon rain forests) and hence reduction in photosynthesis which produces our essential oxygen.
