"Games of War."
The wars became games where people could develop and try out very powerful weapons -- weapons that could kill a million people at a single blow. And when the weapons became too powerful for even the warmakers to use the wars came to an end. Then the governments continued to make powerful weapons which were not needed, but which gained them even more money. Of course small wars continued among the lesser nations who didn't have the powerful weapons, but the power elite saw to it that these "brush-fire" wars were kept under control.
