I have seen over the past years, the military being used in many countries mostly to protect "american interests",. which can mean anything the government says it means. Our debt is gone overboard with no brakes on its final demise. We have never invaded Iraq, it in itself was illegal under our constitution and as a result the worldly explosion in terror expanded. We should have a military large enough and trailed well enough to protect the homeland and unless attacked by a outside force, mind our own business. Its time to bring our troops home from foreign lands and get to bringing our countries problem up front at home. Review all agreements that require to come to the aid of another country if attacked and limit our response if any.
