A 2011 NATO agreement will take 3 of our destroyers. Their new homeport will be Spain, and they will take 1,500 jobs from our region with them. Has the military-industrial complex that Eisenhower feared become a reality?

It's just a clear sign the US should have nothing to do with the UN.

I can't post the link because our news app is horrible, but they're going over to support the missile defense system.

The Air Force base is also reducing it's force by 25,000.

Only since before Eisenhower said it. They're just better at it now.
