I agree, Professor Quigley, we could do with less US military presence. A lot
less. 1,000 US military bases in over 130 countries around the world is beyond
excessive. Also of note, Quigley has posed extremely important geopolitical
questions in this article, the answers (not to be found in mainstream media)
which would reveal actual US strategy.The United States is a de
facto bankrupt nation. The reserve currency role of the dollar is being
challenged. China and Russia are side-stepping the dollar, settling in bilateral
currencies with their major trade partners. At the same time, the US is
struggling to maintain its position as the worldâs lone Superpower. To
preserve economic and military preeminence, Russia must be neutralized along
with China and Iran. This is the end game.
We don't need military bases in Europe or the South Pacific. Close them all,
and focus spending on realistic threats.
