If the US has 95% of the worlds foreign soil bases, does that make the rest of the world isolationist?
Maybe as a rule the US should never have more foreign soil bases than the rest of the world combined. How does that sound?
Including Afghanistan and Iraq, Iraq having an absolutely whoppingly big base in particular, I bet the US is somewhere around the $120 billion a year range to keep them operating. 120 divided by 20= $6 billion. Making an annual saving of about $114 billion.
If there's one thing you can be sure of is that these bases aren't getting any cheaper. Over the next 10 years that's $1.14 trillion dollars saved not including the the amount it costs to pay the interest during that time.
