I tend to lean towards yes. Now, I am very ignorant in terms of foreign policies and our military operations and contributions overseas save what I know from limited personal experience. Perhaps it's better to have some of our own out there in case America is attacked again, kind of a "don't have all your fish in a bucket" type thing. I'd be curious to see what people who have more knowledge in this area think.

Side: Yes.

Lol, fair enough. But I've found there are usually some surprises on this site.

Side: Yes.

In large part, yes. I think it's time for the other countries to pony up their fair share to defend themselves and their interests. Why should the US always bear the burden?

Side: Yes.

Syria is an absolute mess. Millions are dying and who is intervening? Russia - who kill even more for their own purposes. It is horrific and the USA, and the UN in general, could help to end the war but why not? Because of stupid rhetoric like what you spew.

Side: No.

America is a global super power, and if it were to take all troops into America the world would erupt into chaos. Isis would run rampant in the middle east, while Saudi Arabia and Israel would both fall without the support of American military. Furthermore, outside of the middle east, Boko haram would run rampant in Nigeria and west Africa more than it already has, and south Korea and Japan would surely be invaded or attacked by North Korea. Also, the United States military is bigger than the next four countries militaries on the list, and our brining all of American troops into the United states would be unreasonable. The USA is not under any threat of an invasion, and you cannot attack individual terrorist groups with an army.

A useful link for military size: I've checked it with other sources and they all give the same results http://www.globalfirepower.com/country-military-strength-detail.asp?country_id=united-states-of-america
