  • End the operations

    I believe that the United States should stop some but not all of the military operations around the world. Think about the soldiers that are dying to see their loved ones and think about all the literally dying soldiers some of these operations are really unnecessary and we have nothing to do with. Think about it and bring our boys home

  • Us End it.

    The US is sending men and women to their deaths. Our troops are trying to save lives. But sooner or later those lives form armies and turn on us. It's not our fight any more. If Terrorist want to fight themselves that's fine. The only reason we where there was to stop bin laden. Now America needs to bring our boys home to our families.

  • The World's Police

    I believe that the US should scale back a lot of the overseas military operations so we can focus on our own problems. But that doesn't mean that we have to stop all of our military investments, let alone open up places where terrorists can create a stronghold. We just need to focus more on what is happening here in the US, and a little less in the rest of the world.

  • This isn't our war anymore.

    To be honest, I'm not really sure what we're fighting for. We killed bin Laden. Now we're being the worlds police? Our soldiers are dying for another country. Terrorism will never stop. Early settlers terrorized the Native Americans, it's been around forever and will be around forever. Maybe if we stop policing the world, the rest of the world won't hate us. We have our own problems in our country, let them solve theirs. Keep the Navy and let us do we need to with NATO, but bring the rest home. They shouldn't die over there.

  • Bring them all home

    If they really wanted to cut the national deficit, they would bring all of the troops home. Even the ones in places like Japan and Germany. We now have the ability to use our technology to keep the piece. We do not need to be spending all this money on our troops to watch people who are no threat.

  • Too many deaths.

    Yes, the United States should end overseas military operations, because there are too many people that are dying in Afghanistan. There are more people that have died under Obama's watch than under Bush's, but the media is silent about it. Too many young people have died there, and they should be allowed to come home.

  • US End Military

    I personally think that Our military budget is so extremely high that it harms other areas of our budget. Since it is so high other areas are shorted, such as education. If we poured all of that military budget into the areas that are lacking funding, the United States could truly become the best country in the world.

  • Starts unnecessary wars

    U. S. Bases often cause officials to urge American intervention wherever conflict might break out. But this risks entangling us in foreign wars that are none of our business. If conflict breaks out over maritime or territorial disputes in the East and South China Sea, The U. S. May be obligated to intervene against China to fulfill its security guarantee to Taiwan, Japan, Or the Philippines. Getting into a war with China over some uninhabited rocks of no strategic importance to us is not in our interests.

  • Doesn't protect America/oil supply

    U. S. Leaders often argue that bases are the centerpiece of a liberal, Rules-based world order. They claim that bases in Europe protect European allies from Russia, Bases in the Middle East ensure the free flow of oil and contain Iranian influence, And bases in Asia defend our Asian allies from a rising China and an unstable North Korea. But stationing 80, 000 troops at 350 installations in Europe is not directly related to securing Americans’ physical safety. The same goes for the more than 154, 000 active-duty personnel based throughout Asia. And the argument that maintaining a forward-deployed military posture in the Middle East protects the free flow of oil is supported by pitifully sparse empirical evidence.

  • Foreign Presence Unnecessary

    Some argue that bases allow rapid military response. That’s certainly true to some extent. But modern military technology has significantly reduced the problems of travel times over long distances. According to a recent RAND Corporation report, “lighter ground forces can deploy by air from the United States almost as quickly as they can from within a region. ” Long-range bombers can fly missions up to 9, 000 miles, And after that they can be refueled in the air, Reducing the need to have in-place forces abroad.

  • Not completely, no.

    Of course the United States should scale back some of the military operations we have going on overseas, but I do not think every military base should be shut down and everything wrapped up. Much worse would happen without American military presence in much of the world. Much more sinister forces coud take over.

  • Keep the US military alive overseas.

    The US should not end overseas military operations. This is because our safety and security as a country depends upon our ability to protect ourselves at our military's hands. In addition, the military is a large employer of American citizens. If we end these operations, tens of thousands of people will be out of jobs.

  • No way, not now.

    The military should not scale back on it's military operations, heck even now there are too many terrorists in the world and America is having an extremely hard time forcing them back and making them less hostile so unless you want to risk the Americans citizens safety then don't cut back on military operations overseas.

  • How many lives were saved in the end?

    If we end overseas military operations then the infant countries we've helped. How could we save lives if we don't risk lives? The U.S. is doing a fine job as the world's police if that's what they are. Unless there withdrawn the can neutralize threats almost immediately. If the U.S. withdraws it won't be able to take on the sinister threats of this world. The soldiers of the United States know what they signed up for. They signed up to protect people from the evil of this world. So how many people were saved if the U.S. military is not able to fight these evil combatants?

  • Military Operations Ending

    It is difficult to scale between if it should end or not, because if the military ends it then that leaves the land they once claimed protected by the military overran by the other countries wanting to invade it. But if the military were to stay then it might cause wars to the U.S. and the foreigners would state that they do not need the Americans on their soil. Truth be told there has been less terrorist attacks at most places due to the protection of the military, so it might be highly better for the military to continue the operations for the protection of many foreigners that needs our help. You should remember the invasion of Hitler on the Jews, and how the U.S. military helped France in aid of the war, and it caused there to be more peace. My dad was also in the war of Iran and Iraq saving many of the people that has been wounded, and the war he fought during the gulf war, he was successfully able to only rescue two men during the war, fighting his own people for the U.S. He was willing to risk his life for the protection of many things. All the food he was given he only ate less than half and let me have the rest so I can live a good life. He is now retired from working with the marines having a weapon by his side to working with the hospital and became an X-ray Tech. He is now retired after all he has been through and he is happy to be with his family in the end, even in Oki Japan we lived a good life because they had good education there and all the Okinawans are peaceful having the U.S. military by there side. If the military was to retreat then the island would be overrun by other terrorists. If you were all there, it is really peaceful and warm too. I had so many friends there more than I ever had anywhere else, and they were peaceful too.

  • Terrorist will attack again

    If we get out of the countries we are in right now we will regret it. Terrorists will attack our facilities over there and get weapons/supplies that can go against us. The army is the reason we are alive. We could be slaves for all we know. Come on America you are better than this.

  • If we leave now before we end the terroist threat . We're setting ourselves up for more pain

    I know from the whole debacle in Iraq we left before the Iraqi government or military was ready for more enemies to their way of life. And look at what happened if we leave now the same thing will happened in Syria, Afghanistan, and many more middle eastern countries around the world

  • No, definitely not

    We need to protect other countries and ours. When we have overseas missions we help other countries and make our military stronger. Other countries think of us highly when we help other struggling countries. Pulling out troops would be catastrophic and lower our armies morale. Also good countries would fall to the evil ones if we pulled out troops.

  • Only to a certain Extent

    As of today, there are quite a few overseas operations, and lately they have been getting less and less effective. Considering the massive leaps technology is taking, physical military presence is hardly needed anymore. We could shoot a rocket anywhere in he world just from the United States if necessary. But we still need them out there because as mentioned threats will forever be coming. Take for Example ISIS. Do you want your Johnny Boys running back home with their tails between their legs only to have ISIS torture your butt off? And then kill you and your family? I thought not!
