    Seventy Four Nations in Which the U.S. Is Fighting or "Helping"

    An interesting article from the Congressional Research Service.

    Citing a page at US Central Command’s (CENTCOM) website, they highlight the “areas of responsibility” publicly listed:

    " The US Central Command (CENTCOM) is active in 20 countries across the Middle Eastern region, and is actively ramping-up military training, counterterrorism programs, logistical support, and funding to the military in various nations. At this point, the US has some kind of military presence in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, U.A.E., Uzbekistan, and Yemen.

    US Africa Command (AFRICOM), according to the paper, “supports military-to-military relationships with 54 African nations.”

    [Gosztola points out that the U.S. military is also conducting operations of one kind or another in Syrian, Jordan, South Sudan, Kosovo, Libya, Yemen, the Congo, Uganda, Mali, Niger and other countries.]

    Altogether, that makes 74 nations where the US is fighting or “helping” some force in some proxy struggle that has been deemed beneficial by the nation’s masters of war."

    All this "help" overseas while our country is falling apart?

    Kinda reminds me of how Rome ultimately fell. Standing Armies in other nations. Sadly our Government seems to care more for "poor countries" than its own poor. It seems to bend and support countries that dislike America rather than bend and support its own unhappy people. If you ask me, our Government policies are ***** backwards. We as Americans obviously believe in helping ourselves so that we may help others, but I guess others come before its own people in reality.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier....One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.

  4. Yep, that is about the size of the hold matter and sooner or later this country is going to fall.
