The US Military, in particular, has been used not for the defense of the common good but to procure corporate interests, and is deeply resentful of this. Hardly in defense of freedom and democracy, the last several wars have been to secure lands or defend existing holdings, using the US Military like a private army. The war games discussed during the NATO exercises included disasters equivalent to those we have predicted for the pole shift, immense devastation sparing none. In the event that such a scenario ensues, increasing volcanic eruption, quake torn roads and crumbling cities, mass populations homeless and roving the countryside, how should treaties installing the US Military in bases around the world be viewed? All countries would be affected, all armies devastated and occupied with such an emergency, and no borders of concern when sheer survival is the only concern. In the event of such earth changes, troops would be brought home, under stealth and with little fanfare, to the respective homelands, leaving at most a skeleton crew at the bases. The excuse would be the greater need at home.
