>Traditional progressive viewpoint on the military and wars: We need to reduce the military and stay out of wars aimed at furthering American Hegemony
>'Progressives' 2016-2020: Trump is reducing our influence and leadership abroad by bringing troops home, how fucking dare he! We need to intervene in Syria, we need to have large standing armies in Germany, Afghanistan and everywhere in between! The Russians are coming!!!
President Trump has directed the Pentagon to remove thousands of U.S. troops from Germany by September, U.S. government officials said Friday.https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-directs-u-s-troop-reduction-in-germany-11591375651?mod=hp_lead_pos3
The move would reduce the U.S. troop presence in Germany by 9,500 troops from the 34,500 troops that are permanently assigned there.
Then people wonder why hawks like Mattis or McCain and the rest of the neocon cabal hate Trump.
