If America Is Exiting Afghanistan, It Should Exit Every Other Country Too

America is supposedly withdrawing military forces from Afghanistan. We’ll see if that actually happens. But after a generation of progressives doing everything they could to ensure the U.S. lost, the right gave up and agreed that we can’t do what we need to do to win in Afghanistan; that we must surrender. And while the right runs around celebrating Trump’s apparent withdraw, a question remains unasked and thus unanswered: If fighting a war against a nation that sheltered terrorists who attacked us on Sep. 11, 2001 isn’t worth it, then why in the world do we have American forces deployed anywhere across the globe?
Since I just asked that unasked question, I’ll go ahead and answer it as well: We shouldn’t have American troops anywhere in the world.
So withdraw them from Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Egypt and Israel (by way of the Multinational Force and Observers), the Philippines, the Balkans, Iraq, Syria, the Horn of Africa, West Africa, and everywhere else where World War II and the Korean War ended last century; everywhere else that had nothing to do with Sep. 11, 2001. (And while we’re at it, get us out of NATO too.)
Time to bring ‘em home. Time to bring ‘em all home.
