Military Bases In Europe?

World War II ended in May, 1945 with the defeat of Nazi Germany.  Shortly after, the Cold War between the US/Western Europe began against the Soviet Union. By 1991,  twenty years ago, the Soviet Union collapsed and threat of war between the West and Russia ended. So, why does the United States of America maintain thousands of soldiers at bases in Europe? Pray tell, who are they prepared to fight? Billions of dollars are spent each year to maintain these troops who have no one to fight against. Why?

It is time to remove American forces from Western Europe and have them focus on areas of the world which require the presence of guns, planes and soldiers. The current situation simply wastes men, time and gobs of money. Bring Back The Troops!!
