In the event of a war, what happens to all the military bases that the USA has that aren't immediately contributing to the war? Does the USA keep soldiers there, or withdraw them to concentrate the soldiers where they are needed most?

      I didn't even notice the hand cupping the tit, that's how uncompelling the thumbnail was for me.

      The answer to the question is:

      1) US forces are traditionally earmarked for certain theaters but this is subject to change

      2) Closing down major military installations happens in batches through a process called Base Closure and Realignment.

    This.
    The US readiness standards assume they're fighting two peer wars simultaneously.

    After all bases that contribute to the Chinese theatre and all bases that contribute to the Russian/Iranian theatres are accounted for, the ones that are left might be reduced to a caretaking mode.

    Of course, US doesn't go into anything alone so they'll probably just invite a random NATO brigade to hang out there or something.

              That's kinda the thing with a genuine existential threat, you either push literally everything into service and swing as hard as you can, or you stop existing as a nation.
              Could it cost the next election for whoever's in charge?
              Sure, but they wont have a country to get elected in otherwise.

              And what nation on Earth possibly possesses the power to push America into any such existential threat.

                Honestly the only war where the United States would definitely need to reinstate the draft would be a Second civil war and by that point, it would probably already be too late because it would be hostile combatants numbering in potentially the tens of millions vs. a professional military of 1.5 million, half of whom aren't even stationed in North America at any given time. It's gonna be mostly paramilitaries and militias fighting other paramilitaries and militias.

                If things got to the point you had a substantial number of people willing to engage in sustained organized mass violence rather than just the occasional mass shooting or riot (i.e. an actual civil war), the US Army would not be able to expand fast enough to stop them. Its entire training regime is built around an all-volunteer model where completing all of your prerequisite training can take anywhere from 6-12 months depending on specialty, and any attempt to shorten that will simply produce recruits who are grossly underqualified.

                Moreover, reinstitution of the draft would likely only make the military more hated than ever before. You wouldn't just be dealing with draft evasion, but with anti-draft violence on a massive scale, or worse yet, draftees who turn out to be infiltrators and wreckers.

                I think you should look up how fast the US military has grown in times of conflict before you go off spouting dumb shit born from wishful thinking. Starting with the actual Civil War mobilization.
                Assuming you are American (big if, doubt.webp) you should devote your thinking to strengthening your community and working with your fellow citizens. Living in a fantasy world where everything goes to shit is unhealthy and unproductive.

        I don't know, if it boils down to the draft then it's most likely become an existential crisis at that point.

        Doesnt matter if the president is already in 2nd term. Also, just before ww2 the US populace wasnt even sure which side to join. There was plenty of time to convince people.

        We'll just pay people more. How do you think they got volunteers during ww2 for paratrooper duty? They offered $50 more a month, which was a big bonus. If a war is that bad, theres nothing stopping the gov from going on a spending spree and just paying basic draftees $60,000 a year + bennies + even more if they choose an in-demand MOS + more as a sign on volunteer bonus (to incentivize you to join as a volunteer, rather than draftee. Russia does this)

        Similarly you could see guard/reserve units activated, and then draftees replace the home guard. That way theres still a national guard, but draftees dont get sent to Deathlandia, but rather they free up hands of the guardsmen who CAN be sent there. Then the gov just slaps down a $10,000 volunteer sign on bonus in front of draftees and see which fish bite. They could also just offer citizenship, which has been a longstanding and time honored way to get foreign volunteers dating back at least to Rome. Hell the Union Army had a lot of Irish blood in it by the end of the war

            Im sorry, when was the last time the US sent more than token advisors to Israel? We didnt in the Yom Kippur war. Or now. Iraq benefited the gulf states as much if not more than Israel itself. Afghanistan had nothing to do with Israel either. Syria, maybe? Except that had more to do with trying to topple a Russian and Iranian ally.

            Our support for israel is basically political and financial, not kinetic. You wouldnt ever "die for muh Israel"

    I can't see anyone mentioning the obvious. Most of the personnel on those bases are not even movable. Some of them has as much as 50% local staff, meaning from whatever country the base is in. Janitors, cleaners etc etc. Of the actual American a substantial number are staff, office wallahs whose usefulness in a combat zone is limited. Which might leave maybe a third of the total base personnel available for immediate redeployment. In short, abandoning those bases would mean great cost to limited advantage.
