  • 4000 troops on a continent of 800 million people does not seem like much of an involvement.

      It’s probably 4000 more troops than most Americans assume are there.

      • Curious Mayhem

        Which continent? 🙂

      Combatants in that (and other) parts of the world might be ferocious, but they are militarily incompetent. 4000 American fighting troops given carte blanche would significantly hamper the Bad Guys throughout that area. There is indeed no way they could nation-build (as we currently mean it), but most Americans would see that as a feature.
