They are quick to criticize us for everything we do over there, but when we take our money away, now they like us. You can't have it both ways.

DG - wonders what Q will think

This is long overdue, imo. Having troops stationed in Europe is basically useless. Hell, half the time the Europeans don't even want us overflying their countries. And with NK's nukes now, putting 40,000 guys on the DMZ is asking for disaster.

We need to reduce the numbers in NK, and move them off the DMZ. Massing infantry on a line is no longer an effective strategy for modern armies. Let the South Koreans be first in the line of fire anyway, it's their country. The first part of any battle is done with cruise missiles and AC anyway. You have to peel back the defenses before you strike at the infantries and armor.

Our troops in Germany would be better utilized retraining here at home for redeployment in hotspots, and in bases in former Soviet block countries, where they can go after al-qaeda without getting permission from France or Germany to cross their airspaces.

I think we should invade France, they could use something else to complain about.
