The closing of U.S. bases and the removal of U.S. military personnel are critical to the elimination of war.
The United States has more than 150,000 military troops deployed outside the United States on more than 800 bases (some estimates are more than 1000) in 160 countries, and all 7 continents.

Washington, D.C. – New revelations have come to light that explain President Trump’s recent decision to end the CIA’s covert weapons in Syria.
