Is the U.S. military spread too thin? Is the U.S. making any effort to consolidate its forces and bring soldiers and hardware back to the 50 States & D.C. whenever possible? Does the U.S. need to start consolidating its military bases (for example, instead of 20 small bases, why not 10 medium sized bases, or 5 large bases?), or would that put the U.S. military at a disadvantage? Does membership in the U.N. and NATO help or hurt the U.S. when it comes to the use of its military?
What should the U.S. military's future strategy be concerning all these issues?
