8. Same reason why we are still in Germany

or Japan (although they have slowly been kicking us out) and many other places. They are there by treaty but also for training.

My mother's generation were the Korean War vets. That "war" (actually a "police action" ) was the U.N.'s first and the DMZ between North and South Korea, as we all know and saw the hullabaloo about (with the infamous great "coin" ) is still there.



I suppose one could compare/contrast what happened with the Koreas vs what happened with the Vietnams. The geopolitical world has definitely changed since the end of those 2 U.N. "police actions", so oddly enough, those changes prompted that whole PNAC initiative by the neocons (which was supposedly DOA but is actually sortof implemented thanks to people who are still hanging around like Bolton and Elliot Abrams). So U.S. bases have been popping up in other places all around the world as "nimble forces".

Isolationists vs Globalists.

Pax Americana.
