So we go stur up things overseas and then we close bases. Hello. Are we trying to leave ourselves vulnerable?
What's the whole idea to do once these bases are closed? Invite the NWO in and take over? If the NWO truly exists? What is the whole plan?
What am I supposed to think? I don't support war unless absolutely necessary, but you don't leave your bare shiny asses glowing in the sun for everyone to shoot at, while you are screaming, "I'm over here! No protection over here, come on over!"
This is the fifth round of BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure); the last was in 1995.
"Our current arrangements, designed for the Cold War, must give way to the new demands of the war against extremism and other evolving 21st century challenges"

So let me get this straight. They are closing down alot of bases ot save 40 billion dollars? And how much has the war in Iraq cost? 100, 200 billion and counting? The article says it will take years for the savings to be realized. I find it ironic that in the course of 1 and a half years we have spent over 4 times what the government wants to save in its military over 5 years. Military Intilligence, the worlds hugest oxymoron.
