US Woke Military Is Based In More Than 150 Countries - Time To Come Home And Defend Our Border

Presumably to defend the vital interests of the United States, the US Woke Military has troops based in more than 150 countries.  This is crazy over reach that is costing American taxpayers billions of dollars as both Social Security and Medicare are headed toward insolvency and our national debt is now at about $30 Trillion.  This PAX Americana is the greatest empire ever created in world history.  So China and Russia see this as them being surrounded by the American military, which logically must cause them to respond to defend their countries.  Who could blame them.  This does not mean that China and Russia are not a threat to our national security; but it just makes their actions a bit more understandable.  

Both countries have suffered greatly from foreign invasions.  Naturally, they are building and maintaining their militaries to make sure it never happens again.  US Military leaders have much to gain personally from this American overreach.  The Generals and the Admirals get their promotions, status and high salaries from all the never ending wars the United States has experienced, since the beginning of the 20th century some justified and some pretty stupid.  Afghanistan is just the latest example.  

After 20 years of war in Afghanistan and spending trillions of dollars, thousands of American and Allied forces killed and wounded, we are pulling out having gained little.  In a short time, the Taliban will be in control of Afghanistan and once again it will be a base for Terrorists.  What a complete waste of blood and treasure.   The lesson learned should be never land troops.  Use air power alone to punish our enemies.  Kill their leaders if warranted and stay the hell away from nation building.  It just does not work.  

The reality is that we maintain our PAX Americana empire to benefit our global companies not the American people.  The largest companies in the world do business all over the world.  They want the American military there to protect their interests.  What other explanation can there be.  It is time to bring the troops home from many of these countries.  Certainly, the European Union and Great Britain should be able to defend Europe from Russia.  Britain and France both have nuclear weapons to serve as a deterrent.  

We can fire missiles from submarines, or the United States to hit any country in the world.  We don't need to be in those countries to assist in their defense.  Japan needs to develop nuclear weapons so that along with India and Australia, hey can counter balance China.  It is time that the United States rethink our military strategy.  We do not need American troops based in more than 150 countries.  It is time for our troops to come home and defend our border.  It is time to put America First.
