    Certain people i will piss off with my comments, but is my opinion. Our military is a waste of "OUR" tax payers dollars. This is not the soldiers fault. 3/4 of our soldiers arent doing a god damn thing except sitting around in places like Germany, Korea, England, etc.....We have 2 unnecessary wars right now for capital gain. Why should we as tax payers pay for one mans(president) gain as a person. We as the U.S. have nothing to prove to anyone else in the world. We are a super power, why take it out on 3rd world countries with civilian killings? The answer is because a bunch of war, money, and ego hungry fuckers run our country. My brother in law is in korea right now, hes not fighting, hes out drinking and having fun. Why should we have to pay for that? One reason I got into politics myself was to make a difference, eventhough it is just city council member. I would love to go farther up in the ranks of the government, but i bet I would probably fist fight a politicain for being corrupt instead of debating him or her lol!

    I also hate how all media try to describe the America/UK forces as heroes and when one solider dies from there they make a big deal about but when an innocent civilian is killed by these troops dies not a single duck is given to them.

    About America's significance with army bases around the world. I'd have to agree with iCamp about this one. Why bother stationing troops in South Korea and another base in Japan if they're both in close proximity to North Korea. Hell the technology that the Japanese have could eradicate North Korea of this planet.
    I do not agree with the excuse that having army bases around the world will help the army be ready for different conditions. Come on, so you picked an army that isn't able to survive different climatic conditions? What kind of logic is that. When you pick an army you pick not the strongest or best but those who are capable to do the job.

    At that particular time in history , Britain did have a vast control over the world .
    The 1 thing you forget is that they also industrialised nearly every country they occupied .You could compare some of the aspects to what the roman's had done .

    The reason why the western world has bases in other countries is not to plot or scheme to take over the country , but to use these bases incase a neighboring country decides to start a war .
    These bases can be used not just for military personnel , but also aid and relief .

    If you believe that they are going to rule the world , you are mistaken .
    The world has changed beyond belief in the last 50 years to which no 1 single country will ever likely rule the vast of it again.

    The reason why a huge amount of military from various nations are currently fighting for no reason is down to Bush , His old man never finished the job and from when his first got into office , this was always on the table .....to finish what his old man had started .

    Modern day america is not even 300 years old , By going to a middle eastern country and showing them they should change the way they live ( and have done for thousands of years ) beggers belief .
    The so called war on "terror" will never end , you cannot change a culture of people overnight .

    Correct , this is the modern day Vietnam .

    Nearly forgot to add ,
    A military is not judged on how much it has ( money , man power ) but by what it does with the resources it has .
    America might have the most amount of cash spent on the military ...does it make it the best ....In short , No .

    If it was just based on how much fire / man power , then america would have won every war they ever entered ....However this is not the case .
    The U.S government needs to realise that they are not the worlds police.

    Im not taking a swing at any U.S citizen with the statements above , more at the political aspects of it .
    The exact same scenario can be said about the U.K , no 1 wanted to go to "war " in afghan/iraq , if it was down to a public vote i can bet that neither country would be there now .
