Well, if/when America lets the little guys lose their own battles against the giants for a few yrs. or ten...then what? The big boys duke it out? That could get real ugly for the multi-millions of fans of both opponents in the ring...hell, it may even be a tag-team match...or, a free-for-all....winner take all...of what ever is left. Glad I'm not in my 20's. What's this world going to be like 40 or 50 years from now?If memory serves, the first thing Obama did was remove them and replace them with rainbow-flag wavers. Then, like under Clinton, we were perpetually enforcing our will places we probably didn't belong. Trump, for good and for bad, mostly ended the policy of Police Action, and with that said, and if memory serves, the United States isn't supposed to use military force against other countries unless a Declaration of War is issued by Congress, so, if mostly ending our military involvement wasn't necessarily a good thing in some instances, at least it appears to have been the "right" thing. However, the military was already quite tainted, and removing the piss from the punch was too large a task.
One of the things Pelosi said after Trump took office is [approximately], "If Trump doesn't vacate the White House after he loses the next election we'll use the military to remove him by force," later parroted by Biden. There's reason behind those words.
MacArthur, a man who knew human nature, wanted to save the world a lot of expense and suffering. You see where that line of thinking got him and Patton...so there's probably not much left in the modern military.
