What if all our troops came back home?

Would terrorism come to Americca? If so how?

How much money would we save each day/month/year by having our troops back home? What could we do with all that money that would be saved to further prevent attacks on American soil?

Is it possible that we could literally bring all our troops back and still have fewer casualties due to 'extremism' and 'terrorism'?

I want to see scenario's and arguments that make it clear we are just using military force to benefit the few socialist elite.

Well unemployment would go way up.

What jobs would we have for all those men and women returning home?

How many jobs are supported solely by the military?

Not just for bombs and bullets, but for uniforms, MREs, etc.

I often think that Iraq was invaded to create a second theater of operations. A place to fight them so they don't come here.

Let al qaeda send their fighters over there for us to fight them rather than sending suicide bombers here or our embassies. And it worked.

It would be good. They could focus on BORDERS and ports.

The rest of them could start rebuilding infrastructure with civilians creating a huge rebuild America project.

A lot of them are basically psychos at this point.

Violence & terrorism is all they seem to know.

It very likely would increase terrorism, because that is what the US military & much of the US government do, create & inflict terrorism.

All this tap dancing around uniforms is just ridiculous.

You know, blacks steal cars, sell drugs and play some wicked good basketball.

Asians rock at math and are horrible drivers. Women suck at driving, too.

If you're going to believe the stereotype of, "everyone in the military is psycho", you might as well believe in all stereotypes.

You would have the 90s? If you talk about bringing them all home to include Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Horn of Africa, etc, they you would need to open more bases. Or expand the ones we have now by quiet a bit.

Also, why does everyone assume that the military wants to be put to work on civil projects? Not really the military's job, and not what they were built for. We have that already: the army Corps of Engineers.
