4. Better yet, the US could demilitarize it's acting and thinking.

*ALL* countries have cops and vets, police and military. It's a necessity.
These are, or ought to be, honourable jobs.

In both cases honour dictates that the most strict regulation and second sight is also a necessity, in any viable civilization. That's just the way it is.

The USA has gone OTT in this regard. The USA cannot be stopped from without - it spends more on military than the rest of the world combined. You might be the most badass m-f-er in the universe, in your support for the police and the military, but you should have some sense of proportion w.r.t. how the police and military deal with the world.
