    Russia does not have the capability to invade Europe. It's population is around double that of Germany, no more then 1/4 that of the EU. It's military budget is propably 20% that of the UK, France, Germany, and Italy (when combined). It has plenty of its military tied down in the Georgia, Chechnya region.

    Or of course Europe needs a massive military to defend against the massive muslim navy just waiting to cross the med and invade
    Those are all good arguments for us to bring our troops home and close any bases..... I wonder why we don't, do you?

    There is no hate for the military, just wasteful military spending beyond what is needed for defense. Unless you are planning to take on the whole world, you don't need to spend as much as the whole world.

    When was the last time the US. faced an attack on our own soil?

    How big was our military when that attack occurred?

    See a correlation?

    I see, if you dominate the world militarily, you don't have to worry about defense. Several others throughout history had a similar plan.
