Interesting that you bring up Rome. When Rome fell, and all outl posts of Rome left, those individual societies collapsed.Sure, in 2-300 years they recovered, but they still got hurt.

Yeah, Americans should get the hell out of any other country except their own.
To heck with the rest of the world.

I think the U.S. should just be focused on the U.S. for now and stop trying to be the World Police. I personally blame the UK because they are our closest ally, I feel the only reason we are stationed overseas is to be closer to them (and of course closer to certain enemies).
We really shouldn't be placing bases all over the globe, that's only increasing the hate for our country more.
If the U.S. pulled out of everywhere, I'm sure there would be a lot more conflicts. The world can talk all they want about the U.S. but without the U.S. this world would be in chaos. The world needs the U.S. like it or not- the U.S. doesn't need the world.
