I was watching NFL football the other day and the announcer said, "we are broadcasting to american troops who are stationed in 144 countries around the world".

What confuses me is what the hell are we doing in 144 countries?? Correct me if im wrong, but isnt it very expensive to station even one single troop abroad?

Correct me if im wrong, but arent we in an economic crisis, and could use that extra money?

Correct me if in wrong, but what the hell do american troops need to be sitting in 144 countries for?

That is the dumbest fucking video ever.

Apparently Obama his own "Hitler Youth" that march and do karate as they recite Obamas Health-care Plan.

it's set up similar to the zeitgeist movies, except that it's about new world order and how obama is doing the exact opposite of everything he said he was going to do if he became president. it's completly worth the time watching it and is very informational.

I'm going to watch this out of a curiousity to understand the views people hold around conspiracy theories

Don't ever pollute. Don't you wish the people from 40 years ago had thought this?

Lets be the generation that makes the difference.

We have embassies in all of them, and most of the troops there are reporters. Where do you think our news and foreign relations come from? You are right though, that many countries seems a little superfluous. What can I say, politics man.

We would have to do some research before we start casting blame on the situation...

I agree, and sigurd said it pretty good with his comment. It makes perfect sense. But still, it feels a bit over the top in the amount of people we send to certain countries.

Okay, we have embassies in numerous countries and have Marines stationed at all of them for defense. We station our troops around the world for two reasons. 1: to be better prepared to deploy should an emergency require our action. This puts our troops closer to where they are needed. 2: to keep the fight off of our soil.

No the reason we are in so many countries is because of he american dream to have peace but our "leaders are to blind to see that that would never fucking happen." George bush gave the idea to station troops in the countries of the geneva convention and he united nations. I wrote this shit while I'm high bros and hoes. High five.

it really doesnt cost much money to send a troop over seas. plus they're on US territory, so it not like we live in some korean town or somethin. it's actually ours. we own it. i know this only cuz im a marine kid (which makes smoking weed a pain in the ass)
