    It’s about national sovereignty and strategic strength.

    First we have begun to pull out of Syria. Next will probably be Afghanistan but the timing on that is very questionable.

    I do not oppose. I think we have become too willing to have American blood spilled for too little gain. When we go to war it should be with a savage fierceness. We should not use the military to police other nations indefinitely imo.

    Now we are pulling out of a one sided treaty that has weakened us needlessly.

    I'm an expert. But that's for a different thread.

    Trivia - we have military troops in over 150 countries. Ridiculous.

    My general opinion on war is: Never, Ever go to war. However, when you do go to war do everything possible to win quickly and decisively.(The never, ever go to war is an exaggeration of my feelings, but not by much)

    It seems to me that some people are hawks and always want to use the military. Some people are doves and never want to go to war. The biggest problem are people who are persuaded one way or the other. The majority can be convinced to go to war without a commitment and an understanding of the human cost of war. Then when things get ugly, the majority changes their minds and don't support the troops who were sent into the battle field.

    I guess a better way to state my opinion is: Only go to war if you are prepared to lose everything to win, and then STFU and do everything it takes to win.

    And he strikes me as one of the last guys in the world that would volunteer to go to war himself. I wouldn’t want to rely on him to cover my 6 so.....
