I won't speak for Stein but Johnson has repeatedly said that the US faces no military threat from Iraq, or Libya, or Afghanistan, explicitly said we should leave Afghanistan and Iraq and should not involve ourselves in Libya.
He did support the original Afghanistan operation: "I initially thought the intervention in Afghanistan was warranted--we were attacked and we attacked back--but we've wiped out Al Qaeda and here we are; we're still there." - Aug 21, 2011 interview
On Iraq: "I was opposed to us going into Iraq from the beginning, I really thought that there was no threat to our national security, I really thought that if we went into Iraq we would find ourselves in a civil war to which there would be no end and I thought we had the military surveillance capability to see Iraq rollout any weapons of mass destruction and if they would have done that, we could have gone in and dealt with that." - GOP debate, May 5 2011
On Libya his reasoning is that since the US faces no military threat, there is no need to topple its dictator. On Iran, he says that Israel should deal with their alleged nuclear program if they so choose, and the US should stay out of that situation.
