Yes, we are most definately maintaining an empire. We have military in more countries than you can probably even name. I recognise your point about the treaty. But what people should realize is that when the United States enters into treaties we do so with the mindset that we are the world's police, that we have an unlimitted amount of money, unlimited about of troops and guns. We set up these treaties in such a way that we are making promises that we cannot and should not keep. In the same way the federal government makes promises about handouts and providing all kinds of services for the people - all promises we cannot keep. We do the same with foreign policy. We should get back to the business of DEFENDING the motherland. Thats it.
"If you see 10 troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you," said Calvin Coolidge, who ever counseled patience over the rash response.

Unfortunately, the troubles presented by North Korea's Kim Jong Un seem unlikely to run into a ditch before they reach us.

For Kim has crawled out on a limb. He has threatened to attack U.S. forces in Korea and bases in Asia, even U.S. cities. He has declared the truce that ended the Korean War dead and that "a state of war" exists with the South....
