    For the same reason why we have bases in other countries. For example, what is wrong with allowing England set up a base in Alaska to help us keep the Russians off our soil? If we are truly allies with another country, then there should be no issue with them setting up a base on our soil. If we are based in other countries to help train their military and help them if another country attacks, then they should be over here helping us do the same. If this idea makes you uncomfortable, then you need to put yourself in the shoes of the citizens where we are based at.

    None of that makes any sense. We don't need other countries to train our country, or protect us from attack.

    There will be plenty after the Election should Obama win. Republicans wont let it go now and nor will others. Also We know Stevens met with the Turks Ambassador on the Street an Hour before. Also Don't forget Gaffney with the Washington Times that is coming at the issue thru the weapons tangent.
    So despite the deflections by those on the left. It will be ongoing unless Obama loses. Then it might be forgotten.

Do not all peoples deserve the same rights, freedoms and opportunities that exist in the US? Because a person was born in Iraq under Sodamed Insane, they deserved to be arrested tortured and killed but you don't deserve it because you were fortunate enough to born in the US instead? Rather selfish of you to think that only Americans deserve what we have and to protect it, we should just ignore and screw over the rest of the world for it.
    As I recall, the US went through the American Revolution, where we gained our independence. France, Netherlands and Spain aided us in the war, which helped us win over Britain. They all provided us with arms until 1778, then France joined the war to help us win.

    If the citizens of the countries we are in want the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities that we have, they need to fight for it themselves and they can ask for our help. It is not our responsibility to stay in their country and ensure they have those luxuries. We should let them revolt, provide them with arms if they need it and then step in if it looks like they are going to fail.

    From that point, they should establish their own government and we should stay out of it. France didn't play a part in forming our government after helping us win the Revolution. They let us handle it. We need to respect what the citizens decide is best for their country when they decide to revolt.

    And likewise, other countries don't need us to help them do that either. We've held everyone's hands long enough. Time to take off the training wheels and let them ride their own bike. They may fall a few times, but they will be ok.

    If it wasn't for our international presence, the world would be a much sadder place.

    An interesting clip from the UAE but leaves the questions as to why all those papers have not been cleaned up by American investigators and why the media arrived there first.

    Can you describe what would involve 'falling a few times" and what the international consequences might be?

    No, I can't describe what the international consequences would be. I really don't care either. We are living in the year 2012 (almost 2013). If other countries haven't learned how to be humane to each other, then let them duke it out. Why should we keep sacrificing our own money, resources, and people?

    Of course I hope you are right. It can get discouraging at times.
