Buddy Roemer on War & Peace

Former Governor (R-LA); frontrunner for AmericansElect presidential nomination


Avoid occupying foreign lands: too expensive & too deadly

Q: How will you structure the military for smarter spending and improved capability?

A: I have always been a strong supporter of military preparedness and my restructure will reflect that. I will prioritize a well-trained military. I will de-emphasize nation-building on foreign shores (Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.). I will continue the war on terrorism, but avoid occupying foreign lands: too expensive, too deadly for US Forces.
