Pulling US Troops Out of Germany: Trump Adjusts the Military Furniture – Global Research

One noisy theme in the Donald Trump Disruption Show in an otherwise chaotic assemblage of messages has remained fairly constant: winding back US troop commitments.  The US has fought its complement of wars, bloodied and bloodying.  Time to up stakes and head home.  It was a message that sold in 2016 across the aisles of politics, and it is one that continues to resonate.  But the practice of it has proven murkier.  Nothing this president does can be otherwise.  The US military complex remains sprawling, overweight and defiant.  As a result, the military footprint has been not so much dissipated as readjusted. 

President Trump’s recent decision to move troops out of Germany is a case in point.  Those wishing for a trimmer, less militarist imperium will be disappointed.  The shifting of 11,900 US personnel out of the country is seemingly a matter of rearrangement and fitting. The imperium is merely adjusting the furniture.
