Now that Smoker is out of the sandbox, Aussies are at the Stew's bleeding edge of needing Daddy ... and badly.
Maybe they are but they aren't the only ones and the Australians are just one of the rich prosperious countries on the other side of the world that are going to have to pick up all the tab and provide all the young soldiers at risk etc. and thus be responsible for their own defense?

I wish Trump would get on with this isolationism.

There's zero risk of Trump or anyone else turning around American imperialism.
With Smoke safely out of the Sandbox and the Cold War over for decades and when a large percentage of the populations of rich prosperious countries on the other side of the world despise America and wish the Americans would go home and leave their benevolent neighbors like Red China/North Korea/Putin etc alone in their own neighborhoods yada yada yada why aren’t more Americans admitting that Trump might be a clown but they do agree with his isolationist ideas/policy/rhetoric or whatever you want to call it?
Come on Americans (and pretend Americans) & other partisan puppets why not just be honest and admit that on this single isolated issue you agree with Trump rather than the Democrats & many mainstream Republicans etc.
What are tens of thousands of young American soldiers doing in Germany more than seventy five years after the end of WWII and decades after the end of the cold war?
What are tens of thousands of US troops doing on the DMZ in rich prosperious South Korea looking north into a freaking Socialist basket case?
Why is a USN carrier group chugging around the Gulf defending the oil billionaires & Sunni Muslims from Shiite Muslims when both versions of Muslims generally hate Americans?
Why have military bases all over the place just so AMERICA CAN BE BLAMED FOR EVERY FREAKING THING
that goes wrong on the other side of the world?
Why after Vietnam & Iraq & Afghanistan & whatever
haven't you learned your lesson regarding your military getting mixed up in the local regional/religious/tribal conflict on the other side of the world?
Why not just pack up those overseas military bases and send your young Americans home and spend all the cash saved on domestic healthcare or local schools or nicer roads or if you don't want to spend it on useful stuff you could blow it on the Great Wall of America between you and Mexico (or even your scary neighbor Canada)?
Does any American or pretend American on this board have a logical augment for those overseas bases or for that matter any of the above?
BTW Smoker from the bottom of his two sizes too small coal black heart thanks the USN carrier group in the Gulf for keeping him & the oil billionaires safe in the sandbox for over two decades!
Oh and Smoker doesn't want to forget to thanks for picking up the tab to all you US tax payers!
Warmest Regards, Smoker
