I suppose we could have spent another 10 years sending other people’s kids to war and a few more trillion in debt spending on that notion, but in the end the result would have been the same...when we left the savages would have been at each other’s throats again.
I believe we should have kept an enclave over there and not gone out unless we were going to destroy a target (and we had a target to destroy). No more keeping the peace, roadside bomb fodder, etc. We should not just have cut and run, like Barack Hussein Obama. However, when we left, without a strong dictator, they would have been at each other’s throat.
how many years and how many troops have we kept in Germany, South Korea and Japan and why?
I think we should nuke them from orbit...it's the only way to be sure...
...and coming after us.
