I don’t see a problem. Pull the guys back to the US territory. Refuse to engage in any conflict that doesn’t directly affect us. And just tell the media we don’t humanitarian missions.
By “doesn’t directly affect us”, do you mean unless we are attacked on U.S. soil?
America has been strong because our military was strong. Obama doesn’t want a strong America. Sure, they can make spending cuts but not in benefits to our men and women in uniform. Why not just cut Obama’s vacations? That would be a good start.

I think that alone would cut a lot of costs in itself. Thw world hates us so much except when it comes to that humanitarian aid. Then they love us. Now that they’ve gotten so used to it, they’ll act like a spoiled brat and scream if we don’t help. We did it to ourselves.
It’s a huge problem. ‘If you want peace, prepare for war’. Obama is the anti-Reagan now revealing himself after getting reelected.
I dont see a problem. Pull the guys back to the US territory. Put the military on the southern border, give them ammo and shoot anyone trying to cross the border illegally.
I agree, and what you’re saying would make tons of sense, but be prepared to be attacked for saying it. Even some so-called small government conservatives think we should police the world.
Great, then all future wars will be fought on U. S. soil. Wow, why didn’t I think of that?
Totally agree. ‘National building’ is a dangerous sport and not something in our Constitution. It is taxation without representation as we are being taxed to represent some other country.
I’ve got to disagree. A forward posture is necessary for our security.
Even more, you and I both know that the money spent on defense will not be cut from the budget.
It will then be redirected to entitlements.
And then when a war comes along we’ll have no military budget, an entitlement budget swollen by the former defense budget, and a necessity to recreate a defense budget purely on newly borrowed money. That will make the current debt look like a mole hill.
Good. The US is not supposed to have a large peacetime standing army. I don’t want a huge standing army here at home waiting fot the order to enforce martial law. Thanks anyway.
Absolutely. Just make sure Australia, Israel, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea have time to develop and deploy their nuclear force.
