Thomas Jefferson said, “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations—entangling alliances with none.” Why does the U.S. have a military presence in Iraq and Kenya where Americans were recently killed? Why does the U.S. have troops at risk in 150 other countries around the world?

“Peacekeeping,” you say. I ask, where is the peace? “National defense,” you say. I ask, why not at home?

Fellow American, how would you like another country having a military presence in the U.S.?
