"The only thing worse than fighting with allies is fighting without them." -Winston Churchill Moving our troops out of Germany is not necessarily a bad thing. If it's done as a stick to punish Germany, then yes it's a bad thing. However, if the troops are strategically moved to Poland or other countries closer to our enemy, Russia, then it is a good thing because it helps mitigate the threat to a country and despot who has shown little regard for International norms or borders.
