The U.S. military budget is the highest in the world. Our deficit is also the largest. We are already occupying Afghanistan and Iraq, and if you count the dozens of overseas military bases, it is clear that the U.S. military is over-reaching its bounds. By closing bases around the world, it may be possible to reign in outrageous Pentagon budgets and the federal deficit.
No, the United States should not stay out of Egypt, because we have already interjected ourselves deeply into the conflict. It would be hypocritical to say that the United States wanted a regime change in Egypt, only to cut and run as soon as it took place. The United States should provide aid and help Egypt reestablish itself as a strong nation.
