is end up + noun, end up the mess for instance, real english or do native speakers really speak this way? end up the mess, end up the war, end up the meeting etc... is it the incorrect use of the phrase "end up" which means finally be or do something/be in a certain state as a result of some action or event?

Not good English, but oddly enough we can 'finish up the war/ the soup / the meeting'.
thank you. that means it is NOT incorrect and native speakers do speak this way, right?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I repeat: Not good English. That means it is not correct and native speakers do not say that.
but why there are so many evidences, evidences from native speakers, showing the opposite?
Please show me this evidence ( and 'evidence' is an uncountable noun).

I googled "end up the war" and looked at several of the results. None of them seemed to be written by native speakers -- the passages all contained other awkward or incorrect constructions -- with the exception of Mark Twain, who was indirectly quoting a rural, probably uneducated American in the 1860's.
