What should be the military role of the US in the world?
Thibeaux LincecumDonna EdwardsPeter James
By not trying to impose values or gain influence in other nations through the use of force, we remove incentives for others to attack us and can reduce our military spending. The best guarantee for continued peace between nations is economic interdependence, and that results from free trade. We need to withdraw from Iraq and refocus military priorities on real threats in Afghanistan and Pakistan, while engaging diplomatically with countries in the region. As the daughter of a veteran, I am committed to providing quality medical, educational, compensatory and mental health services to veterans and their families.Fully fund benefits for veterans. Stop fighting perpetual war. Reduce 700+ foreign bases to a number we can afford. Use military for defense only, unless we are attacked by a Country and Congress declares war. Pursue terrorist leaders with small antiterrorist units. Get Osama. Don't fight and die for dictators.
