Fair enough. Then in ALL fairness, you are free to do with your vote what you want and pick isolationist leaders.Hell no, and there's nothing that could ever get me to sign up. They still fight "wars" like it's the 19th century instead of just bombing the piss out of anyone that screws with us until they can't screw with anyone anymore and walking away. Troops on the ground should NOT be necessary in the 21st century. The only reason they still do it is so certain people can make billions on rebuilding while soldiers get used as cops and die every day for no reason.
Now, for my promised answer. The US learned a hard lesson from World War II and Pearl Harbor specifically, and that is forward presence means when blood is spilled, it's in somebody else's backyard, not yours. Keeping the wars on foreign shores means less of them here.
Is that reasonable?
