    It's inevitable that we have overextended ourselves as a nation with this empire building - 700+ bases around the world, many dating back to WWII origins and purposes.

    Our financial health is tenuous and having an unconstrained institution like the military getting priority over other pressing issues is madness.

    We need a stronger coastal defense including disaster (BP) response.

    What we don't need is fruitless occupation of countries half way around the world.
