Thats insane, if we do that our rivals win. We are already drawing down one of our expansion phases, that should help. I think the majority of bases
we should pull be from Europe except Germany and the UK as they are ll developed financially and industrially they can handle their own defense.
Most of the alleged bases in Africa are just offices that host a dozen or so advisors and servicemen that assist with training domestic forces in
various things. Those shouldn't be too expensive, and we only have one actual full fledged military base in Africa on Djibouti.
I don't know the fulll extent of our Asian/Pacific presence other than Philippines, Guam, SouthKo, Japan and we trin with Thailand too. Those seem
essential if we pull out, I think China will just steamroll all the islands out there.
We should stop with the military aid for starters though for sure. Colombia, Israel, and Egypt can handle their own affairs. The other ones receiving
smaller packages should be reviewed for necessity, im thinking much of it is unnecessary though.
