Reader comment on item: Assessing the U.S. Global Military Force

I don't understand the talking heads in the press, whether conservative, liberal or moderate and the rhetoric remains the same. Why would anyone believe at this point in history that completely withdrawing U.S. troops will save enough money to get our economy back when Washington continues to spend, increase the national debt, never prepare a proper budget, not allow us to become energy independent, not prepare a tax structure that will actually create jobs, keep us dependent on foreign money and foreign oil, and think that should we emulate England leaving Palestine with their tails between their legs, copy the Dutch, and allow sympathy for terrorists, that hark, we will now be the good guys and no one will attack us again? Annie bar the door and get your gun. My family learned everything they needed to know growing up on a farm in Twin Falls, Idaho. The rats will still find a way to get under the barn even if they have to chew their way in. When the big dogs and the big guns move out, the rats move in!

Dr. Pipes you are right again!
