The United States of America (will once and for all) end our aggressive posture...
We will still fund, support and improve upon the brightest and best military in the entire world
-- Our mission will change.
-- Boots on the ground is your grand-daddy's war strategy.
-- Protecting or Securing freedom for every nation on earth is no longer going to be our direct mission.
-- We will stop killing and maiming generation after generation of America's youth!
We will close military operations around the world bringing our troops back to their homeland and families. If the people of those nations want a military presence, let them speak to their leaders and conscript their own citizens. Let their economies bear the brunt. The protection of our borders is best served from having boots on our soil, ships in our seas, and jets in our space...
We will defend our nation from within our nation, above our skies and throughout those strategic locations where our presence is welcomed.
-- We will not pay room and board however.
-- Hosting countries will finance our presence, salaries, and day-to-day training operations.
--Joint exercises will continue.
Our military is designed to protect our nation from other "nations" who would attack us.
-- Not lone wolves, radical or terrorist groups or individuals.
-- Our military will train and prepare but will disrobe as the world's policing force.
-- We will NEVER Goose-Step
-- We have the technologies to thwart our enemies.
We will devise a broader scope of responsibility to deal with insurgents and terrorists.
--A unit of a thousand score, specifically detailed to thwart and kill such threats, will be assembled.
Honorably discharged berets of all services, Special Forces, Seals, Rangers, etc., will take the point in leadership with our troubled, misguided youth and gangs.
We will be a strictly volunteer force.
Diplomacy is not only essential, it is prudent. However, we must not spread our forces so thinly around the world any longer.
Democracies have existed since before 300 B.C. If a nation's people has the will, they will adopt it. They will shed their own blood and end their own civil wars. They will evolve...or not.
Our nation is devolving
and being sucked into decades
of wars and lost lives of our
sons and daughters.
Those who perish for our nation
also end future generations
of bright smiles and dreams.
It is this lost pool of discovery and achievements that plagues our legacy.
We must vet our policies
We must devise a 'philanthropic' atmosphere of goodwill and
rather than a
'world domination through aggression' mind-set.
A nation must strive for world peace through diplomacy not war.
