Should we stop Obama from playing "World Cop?"

Obama got elected in great part behind his promise to BRING THE TROOPS HOME.
Instead he ESCALATED overseas troop numbers, and relocated them from Iraq to Afghanistan.

Now he's also playing "World Cop" in Libya. He had his hands in the Egyptian saga as well. Plus all around the rest of the world there is an American troop "presence" as well.

Our country is in dire straits fiscally. And Democrats are balking at spending cuts that represent a small amount of our government's yearly spending. But even what the GOP wants to cut doesn't scale back our military operations around the globe.

And a STAGGERING [making our nation stagger financially!] over 2/3 of a trillion dollars goes to military spending per year!

U.S. Military Budget for 2010


For the 2010 fiscal year, the president's base budget of the
Department of Defense rose to $533.8 billion. Adding spending on
"overseas contingency operations" brings the sum to $663.8 billion.


When the budget was signed into law on October 28, 2009, the final
size of the Department of Defense's budget was $680 billion, $16 billion
more than President Obama had requested.
An additional $37 billion supplemental bill to support the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan was expected to pass in the spring of 2010, but has
been delayed by the House of Representatives after passing the Senate.
Defense-related expenditures outside of the Department of Defense
constitute between $319 billion and $654 billion in additional spending,
bringing the total for defense spending to between $1.01 and $1.35
trillion in fiscal year 2010.

Our country is being driven into bankruptcy by NWO that both Obama and Bush followed. We need to stop that UNPATRIOTIC mis-use of our troops.

The Constitution says our troops must be used solely in the defense of our own country.

Ironically, Obama has been quite remiss when it comes to defending our country against the illegal alien invasion besieging our nation.

Allen West says bring the troops home, then re-deploy them along our own border.

Since illegal aliens are costing us almost as much as we are spending world-wide militarily, whatever domestic cost of defending our country from illegal aliens will be off-set by the money we will save by not having them here anymore to suck the lifeblood out of our country.

Let's cut all non-domestic military spending and bring the troops home.

Force Obama to honor his promise, even if not a sincere one.

    Easy to make promises, a lot harder to keep them.

    Though it is too late. Bush, Clinton and Bush 2 alll subscibe to the New World Order and the UN is callling the shots.

    Let's look at this from the point of view of promises made vs. promises kept.

    Interesting how Obama SAID he would close Gitmo, but keeps it open (which it should be open), now has signed "indefinite detainment" law by fiat (Patriot Act on steroids), SAID we would be out of Iraq by now, but we are still there on the offensive, SAID we wants us out of Afghanistan, but we remain and he calls for an offensive. Now we are in, what will be a protracted, conflict with Libya.

    Doesn't sound much like a person who should have gotten a Noble Peace Prize to me.

    I also take great exception to this guy using our men and women in uniform as the police force of the world. He has no respect for the people of this country, so it's no wonder he has no respect for the men and women in uniform.

    We are screwed. Obama is the only president in history who was running 2 wars and had a declining economy.

    Now we are in 3 wars, the economy is STILL in decline and China is positioning itself as the IMF's standard currency. Things are about to get REALLY dicey in the USA.

    Here's a career military man with SIX tours of duty in the Middle-East who says bring the troops home and re-deploy them along the border to defend our own country.

    P.S.
    To those who fault West for having no political experience till recently, I say I think it's a good thing that he ISN'T a career politician. Yet he is well aware of world and domestic politics.

    And the last president we had who was a career military man was Dwight D. Eisenhower, who I regard as BETTER THAN Ronald Reagan. Reagan gave illegals amnesty. Eisenhower gave them "Operation Wetback."

    West, if elected president, will lead us in the manner of Eisenhower. And our country's economy was rock-solid under Ike.

    I agree with West - bring the troops home. However, moving the military is a second-rate solution to the border problems, and could too easily lead to war with Mexico.

    The solution is so damn simple - end the war on drugs, remove law(s) making drugs illegal, and all profits of the drug cartels of Mexico will be wiped away. It will also serve to greatly reduce the illegal traffic, so many of which are now being used for drug smuggling.

    Our jails are being kept overflowing with people who have committed [drug] crimes without victims, doing little or nothing to cure or remove the addiction problems, yet costing the citizens something like $30,000 per prisoner every year.

    I want to hear from Alan West about all of this situation before I will even consider him or any other possible candidate for president.
