Hal Rogers and the other pseudo-conservatives are debating about whether the U.S. should impose a no-fly zone over Libya. We already have U.S. troops in 130 foreign countries. Libya is one of the few countries not occupied by American troops. In the last election, the losing candidate for President McCain took the position that we should keep American troops in Iraq for a hundred years. We have had American troops in Germany and Japan for over sixty years. If we did commit troops to Libya, when would we ever get them back? John McCain would probably answer, "In a hundred years." If I were in Congress, I'd introduce a bill requiring the U.S. troops to exit five nations as a condition to adding any nation to the list of nations where U.S. troops are stationed.
There is not much nice you can say about Viet Nam, Cambodia, Communist China, North Korea, nor Cuba, but at least we don't have any troops there. Let's keep it that way, we have troops in too many countries already! Support our troops; bring 'em home!
