Response to Plucketeer (Reply #14)

24. I said "To start ..."

I agree with you.

But I could be reasonable and accept a phased closing of overseas bases ... maybe within a three to five year range.

For instance, the U.S. has no business having a base in Bulgaria and what, 50,000+ troops still in Europe?

To start ... you could cut the Pentagon budget by 50 percent and still have by far enough military power to very adequately defend the United States of America.
