We need enough troops to defend our borders. OK by me to cut everything else as world policeman.
Yeah you want to fight wars in Texas, Maine, Florida, California, etc? That’s really smart.
Just a little info for the isolationist idiots who SUPPORT what leftists like Hagel and Obama are about to do to us and our allies.
We don’t maintain our armed forces to be the “world policeman”. Plenty happens in this world we do zip about.
We maintain our armed forces worldwide to do little things like keep sea lanes open so we can trade with allies, rather than be choked off here at home. Also to secure our vital national interests.
All of you who actually want to only defend “our borders” you actually would let every single country on Earth fall to enemies???
Canada? Mexico? Israel? England? Germany? Japan?
Get real please.
