One thing important - many countries WANT these US bases. I live in Poland and remember when soviet military bases were here. Our life standard was shitty, we were not allowed to leave our country (unless you had a permission for a passport and just the minority of people had), our economy sucked and basically we had little to no perspectives. Now we became the servants of the USA, and instead of soviet soldiers we have us soldiers. Instead of being brainwashed by soviet propaganda we are brainwashed by us propaganda ... BUT ... the living standards increased tremedously, we have much more freedom of expression than we used to have (actually more then US right now), and if we don't like it here, we are free to go wherever we want. It's not perfect but it is an improvement.

Thanks.

In discussing global geo-political events, I think sometimes we lose sight of the fact that there are real people who are affected by these things.

I suppose that is true, communist Marxism is probably worse than capitalism (even though cultural Marxism is ironically enough being pushed throughout all of the western capitalist states). However, why settle? Instead of being brainwashed by US propaganda and eventually having your children being replaced by arabs and africans in the future, fight for something better. Fight for truth and the betterment of western people.

You don't understand. I'm not saying to settle for what it is. I'm saying that there is a path and you go step by step. Step 1: get rid of the soviets (done). Step 2: improve to some day become fully independent. Step 3: Don't let fucking "refugees" into our country (this has so far been done - no "refugees" are let in Poland).

By brainwashing you mean free market capitalism and witnessing the most powerful country/empire in the history of the world while protecting you for free, then yes.. that is brainwashing.

Free market is great. I wish the USA had a free market where every company is treated equally, no matter their political influence and relations. By brainwashing I mean showin how US is awesome, while it is a country which also has a lot of problems and which also causes a lot of problems. We are not protected for free, we purchase US products, we use US services, we use US banks and pay a lot for the relation with USA, and what had some value, was sold to US investors much cheaper than it was actually worth. Feel free to visit and see for yourself.
