National Security Expert Warns Withdrawal of US Troops Will 'Make the World Much Less Safe'

US troops

The US is set to remove some 12,000 troops from Germany and is reviewing plans to draw down US forces in South Korea. 
The moves are part of a policy of restraint and disentanglement from overseas conflicts and are much in line with the president's call to end "forever wars" like the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

The isolationist ideals of American military restraint appeal to President Trump and to some Democrats as well.
In a recent article in foreign policy, authors Jonathan Schanzer and Mark Dubowitz call the restraint of US power a "dangerous illusion,"  adding that withdrawing from foreign entanglements "would make the world much less safe."

Jonathan Schanzer, the senior vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, appeared on the Monday edition of CBN News' Faith Nation to present his argument on why withdrawing US troops is not the best foreign policy. 

Faith Nation is seen weeknights on the CBN News Channel.
