Postulate: The United States withdraws all military forces from foreign soil and returns them home. Now, what happens around the world?

Please respond practically, logically and without malice aforethought. Just a discussion and please refrain from personal attacks - as always.

What happens? Surprisingly little.

Mmm! I like QOTW's!

I would simply state, the world certainly wouldn't be worse off by it.

Probably a lot of redundancies in the US armed forces? I dont know maybe a lot of happy families glad to see their loved ones home. As for the foreign countries - nothing most like life continous on!

Nice question Beerman.
What weould happen?, well probably exacly the same as when the British empire fell apart .... A few more wars and a new superpower takes it's place (just like when the US took over from the UK).
