  • A lot of people will say that they are fighting on foreign soil so that the war isn't fought on our own soil. That should make us happy enough I suppose. I don't know that it helps much though, since the people we are supposed to be fighting are all over the world and have most likely infiltrated our own borders and are just laying low until they get their orders to do whatever destruction they are hellbent to do. I think if they think they can win the war then they need to do it quickly and efficiently, if they don't think they can win it they need to pack it in and come home. No need to stay and waste resources and most of all, bodies.

  • Do you want them all to come home? Do you want to end all missions in Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, England, etc? Missions that required our nation's strong military support?.. Missions that since we have set up bases have had no wars? Bases that have built alliances? Or are you just talking about Iraq and Afghanistan? Your question appears to be 'general' and rather naive. Please clarify..

  • The original purpose of the military is to protect our country from invaders and threats.  Like with any other country, it is to protect it's citizens, however we tend to get involved in other countries wars and such.
