Foreign Policy & Vacuum theory

Have you noticed lately that news analysts keep saying Dr. Paul's ideas on bringing our troops home from around the world will leave a "vacuum" militarily. Supposedly this vacuum is going to be filled by China, or Russia, or something along those lines. -It seems that a real easy way to argue this idea is to simply compare it to the "domino theory" of the Vietnam War. When we left Vietnam, that "vacuum" did not get filled by communism like they predicted! Plus have you seen the graph that shows each country and their military budgets. What are these countries going to fill the vacuum with? One of their 10 ships? PLEASE...

The vacuum theory sucks, just like the dominoes theory fell

in the 1960's and 1970's.
