SFA's are what you surmised; Status of Forces Agreements.
My answers weren't good enough? Not specific enough? Now you want to stretch into limbo-land ad infinitum which is usually a leftist ploy. But, but, but, if, if, if. It is an imperfect world we live in. There is always an exception.
Do you think the Government of Venezuela or Cuba is reputable and represents the majority of the citizens in each? How much have we really interfered in those countries recently? Do you think Syria was a stable country before we came in? Do you think Bashar Assad is a legitimate ruler? Do you think America has been the only country to interfere with other nation's sovereignty? Oh, wait, I forgot, this is all Trump's fault, right?
Yes, we have done many things that we shouldn't have done, and the past can't be changed. We are also a country that values freedom and truth enough so that these can be discussed in an open public forum and new policies develop in response. There is also much good that America has been responsible for. I don't see immigrants flocking to these other countries. I don't see Americans trying to except this country often at a cost of life or limb to climb a wall. No, America is not perfect. As Winston Churchill once said (and I have to paraphrase here because I don't have the exact quote), "You can always count on America to do the right thing, after she has tried everything else."
We may yet very well leave Iraq. Too soon to say. Trump wants the troops home but we have to defend our interests, one of which is our embassy and the airbase that cost billions to build. Trump said the Iraqis would have to pay for the base if we leave. The details are something that has to be worked out. Negotiations and agreements have to be sorted through and treaties ratified. Now don't come back with a whole slew of other questions about treaties. You know exactly what I mean. We will continue to have these discussions and arguments in America about the best course of action for the government to follow. That's what elections are also for! One thing I am certain of is that the Progressive Leftist of the Democratic Party has absolutely nothing worthwhile to offer the world nor America. Everything they stand for has already been tried, tweaked, retried, and failed.
Very True, however consider a key component in you... (
We defeated Hitler but we don't control Germany. The same goes for Japan or Italy. Nor do we control any nation anywhere else. Some are thankfully our allies and friends, some are just commerce partners. It depends on our and their leaders who have never represented all the people because that is impossible. Leaders can only help or hurt their nation. The nation is the people. Venezuela and America both have had booming economies and only one had to eat zoo animals to survive and are suffering today because they got a really bad leader, who took their guns, then stole their wealth at the end of a gun. Funny the government never gives up its guns because that's crazy, they may be attacked someday. Exactly. The left wants to turn us into Venezuela and going through garbage dumps to survive.
What about if you don't have either Patriotism or Nationalism ? You have Obamaism.
Well said. As far as being in lots of other countries around the world, because are a powerful nation we support other nations who can't defend themselves for aggressors like Russia, China, Iran who want to invade their weaker neighbors. We are spread out all over the world to help keep the world stability.we are not invaders/aggressors, we are defenders !!
