I believe that the U.S.A. should close the bases in Europe I mean after 60+ years they should be strong enough to defend their own borders and we should only get involved if they get invaded. we should remain staunch allies with Isreal,England,Germany,Japan,South Korea and maybe France. the only reason I didn't include Canada is I feel they are just our northern neighbor and part of the family.
You might enjoy perusing this particular thread below from a while ago about duty in Europe pulled by a few us back in the day:
