WHEREAS the U.S. government spends billions in tax dollars maintaining military bases in more than 100 countries; and

WHEREAS many citizens in these countries resent the presence of foreign military on their soil; and

WHEREAS each crime committed by U.S. personnel, such as the recent rape of a 14-year-old Japanese girl by an American soldier, diminishes the reputation of the U.S. throughout the world; and

WHEREAS covert and overt interventions in the governments and economies of Asian and Latin American countries have caused immeasurable turmoil and suffering for their people; and

WHEREAS U.S. invasions and/or occupations of the Philippines, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, and Iraq cost an untold number of lives, immeasurable damage to infrastructure, and billions in American tax dollars; be it therefore

RESOLVED that the United States immediately bring its troops and private contractors home and shut down all military bases outside American borders, and be it further

RESOLVED that Congress refuse permission for the deployment of U.S. personnel and/or weapons to another nation unless that nation poses an unquestionably imminent and deadly threat to the United States.
