We could of course simply take our troops out of Europe.

We pretty have except for airman & navy personnel for air & naval bases in Europe.

" In 2000, just 69,203 American military personnel remained."*

"American troop strength in Europe will drop from its the 112,000 in 2003 to around 50,000 by around 2010."
