Yes, but we are bound by treaty in South Korea due to the armistice. If we break that treaty, the north will invade the south and one of the world's most economically productive democracies will be completely annihilated and millions of lives will be lost.
I agree about pulling out of Germany.
I'm conflicted about Japan due to their cultural history and have reservations about allowing them to start rebuilding their military in earnest.
As for Germany, Iraq, Kuwait, Djibouti, Afghanistan, and Italy, there's really no reason for us to be there and we should leave.
We must keep the 5th Fleet in Bahrain, however, due to its ability to keep trading lanes open and project force throughout the entire region.
As much as I'm in favor of reducing our presence of "boots on the ground", I'm actually in favor of expanding our navy and its force projection capabilities.
