Reorganizing US Military Presence

"U.S. military forces abroad will undergo their most radical reconfiguration since the beginning of the Cold War," reports Radio Free Europe.

Citing a recent report in the Washington Post, Jeffrey Donovan writes, "the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea and the recent removal of U.S. forces from Saudi Arabia are the first steps in an ambitious project to replace most of America's permanent bases with dozens of smaller ones for quick strikes around the world."
