Redeployment:

Addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) convention in Cincinnati August 17, President Bush announced long-term plans to withdraw 70,000 U.S. troops from many European and Asian nations where they remain today through inertia that has kept them there since President Reagan won the Cold War. The troops would be redeployed back in the United States and in Eastern Europe.

In our Sept. 10, 2001, issue (page 3), HUMAN EVENTS (page 3) presciently asked members of Congress : “Against what threat are the 70,000 U.S. troops in Germany defending America?” HE got no good answer then. The most candid came from Rep. Bennie Thompson (D.-Miss.). “I really wouldn’t know,” he said. “We’ve had them there all the time.”
