Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson today released a web ad discussing defense policy and calling for ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Governor Johnson also strongly opposes the latest war in Libya.
Governor Johnson commented, “We will only achieve a strong national defense by avoiding the over-extension of our troops in wars like those in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, where American security is not threatened.
“Wasting money on nation building and trying to police other countries’ civil wars makes America weaker.
“As Commander-in-Chief, I would bring our troops home tomorrow and refocus our military spending on true security interests.”
