If you can't see why the USA should back off, then I hold no hope for your ability to see what is truly needed for a peaceful world, The USA is leading us all to a not very happy future, it cares nothing for human rights except as a political tool, maybe once it did, but no longer.

The US had established bases in the area first and fought a massive campaign to free those places at great cost. Do you think they'd not keep some sort of defense in depth in that area? A sort of tripwire you could say!
I believe that if the US backed off, they'd not have the ability to respond to any threat to it's allies and friends in the area, as quickly as they'd need to in order to stave off a larger conflict/crisis.

The biggest problem we face is when people think that what "the other side"does is bad, and that what "our side" does is only done out of necessity. wrong is wrong, we cannot in any way justify our hegemony, or the laws that take away our freedom and protection within our own countries. or the black prisons we create because it would break our own laws and give the prisoners some rights and protection from being tortured etc if those prisons were in our own country.

The USA could, does, and would. If you think these middle eastern wars were just about freeing the people, or about terrorism, then maybe you need to take another look, widen your mi-optic view
