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.
They all can defend themselves. We have to borrow money from China to defend the world. England is now in the tank after centuries of war. We spent the first half of last century in Europe, the second half in the Pacific. Now we are into the NE and Africa with hints of So America. Another war is existential to us. China is breathing down our necks. I’m for protecting America. Don’t worry about the non-interventionists. It’s the interventionists that spell the doom for this country. And that’s getting real.
