Stop being the world police, we need them here, all troops need to come home right away
Slowly bring all troops deployed around the world home
Strategically place troops in areas where they are needed most for security
We need more not less international involvement
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I have no problem leaving some troops around the world in places that are a direct and imminent threat to the U.S. interests, but we've played world policeman for far too long, we need to get the hell out of most overseas bases and let other countries handle their own defense. We need to seriously downsize our military, it's costing us too much and we're getting little or nothing out of it in return, except pointless, costly wars that get us nothing.
I totally disagree with the third option.
Of our "troops", 90% are for war; 10% are for peace.
Lets reverse these and, for the first time in our existence, lets go to peace..
Of course, the above numbers are fabricated, IMO, a man with a gun = war; a man with love = peace.
Whatever happened to the "peaceniks" of 50 years ago ?
1 or 2 would be fine with me, the military is unnecessarily oversized and overfunded, We're investing more money in militarism than "Defense".
Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
Bring them home now. It does no good to have all these troops all over the world, but to feed fuel to terrorism.
