    Just like WWII, Vietnam, and Korea have been over for quite a while now. Bases in Germany? Check. Bases in South Korea? Check. Bases in- well, you get the picture.

    I don't really think having bases in places count as the war still going on.

    So why do we need to have a military presence in places where there isn't a war?

    To keep the peace, to prove to those countries that we will keep our word and protect their freedom and future prosperity, to show the world that we mean business when it comes to spreading democracy and that we don't fuck around, etc etcet teccetetec.

    Besides, last I checked South Korea and Germany are doing pretty damn well for themselves, just as I suspect Iraq and Afghanistan will, eventually.

    Vietnam is a different story obviously. Can't win 'em all I guess.

    I thought that Vietnam has improved a lot over the last decade as well.

    Britain's pulling out of Germany I think so America might follow suit seeing as it's more or less a waste of money with Communism (East Germany in particular) long gone in Europe.

    Protecting them from what? The boogeyman of non-democracy? We aren't protecting anyone from the UN.

    Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia are quaking in their boots, cause they know we mean business when it comes to ending human rights abuses and spreading democracy.

    :(

    I don't mean to attack you or anything, but I disagree with you.

    I don't know about Vietnam, South Korea or Germany, because I have never been there.

    But US intervention in Latin America only responded to US interests, not ours.

    I don't think that helping to install military dictatorships that tortured and murdered dozens of thousands of people; and also screwing up the economies with neoliberalism is spreading democracy and protecting our freedom and future prosperity.

    Just saying.

    Britain going to war with Argentina, against the wishes of the U.S.A. did more to spread democracy there. I know that might be an offensive thing to say but it's true.

    After extensive research I have concluded that it is in fact the end of the fastening strap for the beach umbrella I was sitting under.

    Behold Tatey the Alien Spawn, found living at the rear of our pantry several days ago. We're thinking of taking him out on the road and making a million with him.
