During the 1950s a common sign on walls of French cities was: “Ami Go Home.” This expressed the desire of some Europeans for the departure of American forceds from their lands. Fifty years have passed and American troops remain in Europe, but the real question is: Why? Some members of Congress are beginning to raise the issue as to why there are thousands of American troops in Europe, two decades after the end of the Soviet Union. The House Armed Services Committee is asking the president to pull all permanent soldiers from
Europe, but members of the Senate are worried.
There is no Soviet army to confront.
There is no threat to Europe from any area in Europe.
Europeans are quite capable of handling military issues within the continent.
AMI COME HOME!
