Obama has cancelled the return of one combat brigade from Europe planned by George W. Bush, and two administration officials promise an even bigger military presence in Europe than in the past decade.

It's okay with me. There are several US-bases here in my region of Germany and nobody is concerned about them - well, maybe some leftists group (Die Linke). To be honest, some of the cities in the south west depend on them - it's all about money. So, they get their military support and in return the cities get money. As long as they don't try to tax us (that would be a bad move - like the Romans tried...) I don't have any problem. In fact, it is quite amusing to see all these US-police vans patrolling the streets of some small villages. Never had any trouble, most people are very friendly. It's only disturbing when these fighter jets crash from time to time.

But if I would be an American citizen, I probably wouldn't like it.

You are right, many of us Americans don't like it and see it as a HUGE waste of resources.. I've spent a lot of time in Germany and every time I've seen soldiers or bases I just shake my head at the wasted tax dollars..

Gunther - believe me.  You are paying a tax for this.  It's subtle.  Like all that toxic financial gas the German banks wound up holding ... and Merkle covered.

Do you realize that it was reported in the French media that they're actually running low on ordinance?  Bombs.  Used 'em all up in Libya.  Already.

UN approval.  Fuck Yeah!

Iran is the whipping boy when Bahrain keeps murdering their own citizens and Bahrain's police are running amok destroying private property of their citizens. Check YouTube videos to see Bahrain's police vandalizing and destroying private property without any cause or restraint. Bahrain just wants to use a 'booga booga' scapegoat like Iran... only idiots would believe it. Bahrain is starting to do exactly what Egypt did at the beginning of their newfound revolution.

Here's more on Bahrain, it would appear that Saudi Arabia is willing to stand up to Iran this time. Of course they are surely being forced by the US to do so.

Yes yes this is all preposterous. Iran is much too busy encroaching on the American and British lackeys stirring unrest is its tranquil theocracy to be encroaching on the affairs of its neighbours.

Bahrain and Saudi Arabia should worry less about Iranian military "encroachment" and more about Iranian nuclear "encroachment" when their ass-backwards Bushehr reactor inevitably melts down and showers the entire peninsula in radiation.
