    Who thinks the US military should be replaced with a citizen defensive body?

    Who thinks the US military should be replaced with a citizen defensive body like Switzerland has? As in every able-bodied adult (except for conscientious objectors) owns and knows how to use a military grade rifle and advanced weaponry is under local civillian control.

    Silly.

    We have the most powerful military in the world and its all volunteers.

    If your'e trying to make the point that we should be isolationist then just make that point.

    You can't maintain global hegemony with a citizen defensive body.

    That canard again.

    isolationism definition

    The doctrine that a nation should stay out of the disputes and affairs of other nations. The United States practiced a policy of isolationism until World War I and did not pursue an active international policy until after World War II. ( See “ entangling alliances with none.”)
