Review Article: The Worldwide Network of US Military Bases

The Worldwide control of humanity’s economic, social and political activities is under the helm of US corporate and military power. Underlying this process are various schemes of direct and indirect military intervention. These US sponsored strategies ultmately consist in a process of global subordination.

Where is the Threat?

The 2000 Global Report published in 1980 had outlined “the State of the World” by focussing on so-called “level of threats” which might negatively influence or undermine US interests.

Twenty years later, US strategists, in an attempt to justify their military interventions in different parts of the World, have conceptualised the greatest fraud in US history, namely “the Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT). The latter, using a fabricated pretext constitutes a global war against all those who oppose US hegemony. A modern form of slavery, instrumented through militarization and the “free market” has unfolded.

Major elements of the conquest and world domination strategy by the US refer to:

1) the control of the world economy and its financial markets,

2) the taking over of all natural resources (primary resources and nonrenewable sources of energy). The latter constitute the cornerstone of US power through the activities of its multinational corporations.

Geopolitical Outreach: Network of Military Bases

The US has established its control over 191 governments which are members of the United Nations. The conquest, occupation and/or otherwise supervision of these various regions of the World is supported by an integrated network of military bases and installations which covers the entire Planet (Continents, Oceans and Outer Space). All this pertains to the workings of an extensive Empire, the exact dimensions of which are not always easy to ascertain.

Known and documented from information in the public domaine including Annual Reports of the US Congress, we have a fairly good understanding of the strucuture of US military expenditure, the network of US military bases and the shape of this US military-strategic configuration in different regions of the World.

The objective of this article is to build a summary profile of the World network of military bases, which are under the jurisdiction and/or control of the US. The spatial distribution of these military bases will be examined together with an analysis of the multibillion dollar annual cost of their activities.

In a second section of this article, Worldwide popular resistance movements directed against US military bases and their various projects will be outlined. In a further article we plan to analyze the military networks of other major nuclear superpowers including the United Kingdom, France and Russia.

II. More than 1000 US Bases and/or Military Installations

The main sources of information on these military installations (e.g. C. Johnson, the NATO Watch Committee, the International Network for the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases) reveal that the US operates and/or controls between 700 and 800 military bases Worldwide.

In this regard, Hugh d’Andrade and Bob Wing’s 2002 Map 1 entitled “U.S. Military Troops and Bases around the World, The Cost of ‘Permanent War'”, confirms the presence of US military personnel in 156 countries.

The US Military has bases in 63 countries. Brand new military bases have been built since September 11, 2001 in seven countries.

In total, there are 255,065 US military personnel deployed Worldwide.

These facilities include a total of 845,441 different buildings and equipments. The underlying land surface is of the order of 30 million acres. According to Gelman, who examined 2005 official Pentagon data, the US is thought to own a total of 737 bases in foreign lands. Adding to the bases inside U.S. territory, the total land area occupied by US military bases domestically within the US and internationally is of the order of 2,202,735 hectares, which makes the Pentagon one of the largest landowners worldwide (Gelman, J., 2007).

Map 3 US Military Bases

The Map of the World Network “No Bases” (Map 3) reveals the following:
Based on a selective examination of military bases in North America, Latin America, Western Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan, several of these military bases are being used for intelligence purposes. New selected sites are Spy Bases and Satellite-related Spy Bases.

The Surface of the Earth is Structured as a Wide Battlefield

These military bases and installations of various kinds are distributed according to a Command structure divided up into five spatial units and four unified Combatant Commands (Map 4). Each unit is under the Command of a General.

The Earth surface is being conceived as a wide battlefield which can be patrolled or steadfastly supervised from the Bases.

NATO Military Bases

The Atlantic Alliance (NATO) has its own Network of military bases, thirty in total. The latter are primarily located in Western Europe:

Whiteman, U.S.A., Fairford,
Lakenheath and Mildenhall in United Kingdom,
Eindhoven in Netherlands,
Brüggen, Geilenkirchen, Landsberg, Ramstein, Spangdahlem, Rhein-Main in Germany,

Ali al Salem in Koweit


III. The Global Deployment of US Military Personnel

There are 6000 military bases and/ or military warehouses located in the U.S. (See Wikipedia, February 2007).

Total Military Personnel is of the order of 1,4 million of which 1,168,195 are in the U.S and US overseas territories.

Taking figures from the same source, there are 325,000 US military personnel in foreign countries:

    – 800 in Africa,
    – 97,000 in Asia (excluding the Middle East and Central Asia),
    – 40,258 in South Korea,
    – 40,045 in Japan,
    – 491 at the Diego Garcia Base in the Indian Ocean,
    – 100 in the Philippines, 196 in Singapore,
    – 113 in Thailand,
    – 200 in Australia,
    and 16,601 Afloat.

In Europe, there are 116,000 US military personnel including 75,603 who are stationed in Germany.

In Central Asia about 1,000 are stationed at the Ganci (Manas) Air Base in Kyrgyzstan and 38 are located at Kritsanisi, in Georgia, with a mission to train Georgian soldiers.

In the Middle East (excludng the Iraq war theater) there are 6,000 US military personnel, 3,432 of whom are in Qatar and 1,496 in Bahrain.

In the Western Hemisphere, excluding the U.S. and US territories, there are 700 military personnel in Guantanamo, 413 in Honduras and 147 in Canada.

Map 3 provides information regarding military personnel on duty, based on a regional categorization (broad regions of the world). The total number of military personnel at home in the U.S. and/or in US Territories is 1,139,034. There are 1,825 in Europe 114, 660, 682 in Subsaharian Africa, 4, 274 in the Middle East and Southern Asia, 143 in the Ex-USSR, and 89,846 in the Pacific.

IV. The Operational Cost of the Worldwide Military Network

US defense spending (excluding the costs of the Iraq war) have increased from 404 in 2001 to 626 billion dollars in 2007 according to data from the Washington based Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. US defense spending is expected to reach 640 billion dollars in 2008.

Center for Arms control

These 2006 expenses correspond to 3.7% of the US GDP and $935.64 per capita

Figure 1. U.S. Military Expenditures since 1998

Source : Global Issues

According to Fig 1, the 396 billion dollars military budget proposed in 2003 has in fact reached 417.4 billion dollars, a 73% increase compared to 2000 (289 billion dollars). This outlay for 2003 was more than half of the total of the US discretionary budget.

Since 2003, these military expenditures have to be added to those of the Iraq war and occupation The latter reached in March 2007, according to the National Priorities Project
, a cumulative total of 413 billion dollars.

US defence budget will equal ROW combined “within 12 months

Estimates of the Defense Department budget needs, made public in 2006 in the DoD Green Book for FY 2007 are of the order of 440 billion dollars.

Military and other staff required numbered 1,332,300. But those figures do not include the money required for the “Global World on Terrorism” (GWOT). In other words, these figures largely pertain to the regular Defense budget.

A Goldstein of the Washington Post, within the framework of an article on the aspects of the National 2007 budget titled «2007 Budget Favors Defense», wrote about this topic:

“Overall, the budget for the 2007 fiscal year would further reshape the government in the way the administration has been striving to during the past half-decade: building up military capacity and defenses against terrorist threats on U.S. soil, while restraining expenditures for many domestic areas, from education programs to train service”

2007 Budget Favors Defense

V. US Military Bases to Protect Strategic Energy Resources

In the wake of 9/11, Washington initiated its “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), first in Afghanistan and then in Iraq. Other countries, which were not faithfully obeying Washington’s directives including Iran, North Korea, Syria and Venezuela have been earmarked for possible US military intervention.

Washington keeps a close eye on countries opposed to US corporate control over their resources. Washington also targets countries where there are popular resistance movements directed against US interests, particularly in South America. In this context, President Bush made a quick tour to Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, Guatemala and Mexico «to promote democracy and trade» but also with a view to ultimately curbing and restraining popular dissent to the US interests in the region. .

VOA

The same braod approach is being applied in Central Asia. According to Iraklis Tsavdaridis, Secretary of the World Peace Council (WPC):

“The establishment of U.S. military bases should not of course be seen simply in terms of direct military ends. They are always used to promote the economic and political objectives of U.S. capitalism. For example, U.S. corporations and the U.S. government have been eager for some time to build a secure corridor for US.-controlled oil and natural gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea in Central Asia through Afghanistan and Pakistan to the Arabian Sea. This region -has more than 6 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves and almost 40 percent of its gas reserves. The war in Afghanistan and the creation of U.S. military Bases in Central Asia are viewed as a key opportunity to make such pipelines a reality.”

Stop USA

The US. are at War in Afghanistan and Iraq. They pursue these military operations until they reach their objective which they call “VICTORY”. According to Wikipedia, American troops fighting in these countries number 190,000. The “Enduring Freedom” Operation in Iraq alone has almost 200,000 military personnel, including 26,000 from other countries participating to the US sponsored “Mission”. About 20,000 more could join other contingents in the next few months. In Afghanistan, a total of 25,000 soldiers participate to the operation (Map 6 and Map 7).

VI. Military Bases Used for the Control of Strategic Renewable Resources

US Military Bases in foreign countries, are mainly located in Western Europe: 26 of them are in Germany, 8, in Great Britain, and 8 in Italy. There are nine military installations in Japan (Wikepedia).

In the last few years, in the context of the GWOT, the US haa built 14 new bases in and around the Persian Gulf.

It is also involved in construction and/or or reinforcement of 20 bases (106 structured units as a whole) in Iraq, with costs of the order of 1.1 billion dollars in that country alone (Varea, 2007) and the use of about ten bases in Central Asia.

The US has also undertaken continued negotiations with several countries to install, buy, enlarge or rent an addional number of military bases. The latter pertain inter alia to installations in Morocco, Algeria, Mali, Ghana, Brazil and Australia (See Nicholson, B., 2007), Poland, Czech Republic (Traynor, I., 2007), Ouzbekistan, Tadjikistan, Kirghizstan, Italy (Jucca, L., 2007) and France.

Washington has signed an agreement to build a military base in Djibouti (Manfredi, E., 2007). All these initiatives are a part of an overall plan to install a series of military bases geographically located in a West-East corridor extending from Colombia in South America, to North Africa, the Near East, Central Asia and as far as the Philippines (Johnson, C., 2004). The US bases in South American are related to the control and access to the extensive natural biological , mineral and water resources resources of the Amazon Basin. (Delgado Jara, D., 2006 and Maps 9 and 10).

VII. Resistance Movements

The network of US military bases is strategic, located in prcximity of traditional strategic resources including nonrenewable sources of energy. This military presence has brought about political opposition and resistance from progressive movements and antiwar activists.

Demonstrations directed against US military presence has developed in Spain, Ecuador, Italy, Paraguay, Uzbekistan, Bulgaria and in many other countries. Moreover, other long-termer resistance movements directed against US military presence have continued in South Korea, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Philippines, Cuba, Europe, Japan and other locations.

The Worldwide resistance to US foreign military bases has grown during the last few years. We are dealing with an International Network for the Abolition of US Military Bases.

Such networks’ objective is to broadly pursue disarmament, demilitarization processes Worldwide as well as dismantle US military bases in foreign countries.

The NO BASES Network organizes educational campaigns to sensitize public opinion. It also works to rehabilitate abandoned military sites, as in the case of Western Europe.

These campaigns, until 2004, had a local and national impact.

The network is now in a position to reach people Worldwide. The network itself underscores that “much can be gained from greater and deeper linkages among local and national campaigns and movements across the globe. Local groups around the world can learn and benefit from sharing information, experiences, and strategies with each other”

“The realisation that one is not alone in the struggle against foreign bases is profoundly empowering and motivating. Globally coordinated actions and campaigns can highlight the reach and scale of the resistance to foreign military presence around the world. With the trend of rising miniaturization and resort to the use of force around the world, there is now an urgent and compelling need to establish and strengthen an international network of campaigners, organisations, and movements working with a special and strategic focus on foreign military presence and ultimately, working towards a lasting and just system of peace»

No bases!

The Afghanistan and Iraq wars have, in this regard, created a favourable momentum, which has contributed to the reinforcement of the movement to close down US military bases in foreign countries:

“At the time of an International anti-war meeting held in Jakarta in May 2003, a few weeks after the start of the Iraq invasion, a global anti-military Bases campaign has been proposed as an action to priorize among global anti-war, justice and solidarity movements» (http://www.no-bases.org/index.php?mod=network&bloque=1&idioma=en).

Since then, the campaign has acquired greater recognition. E-mail lists have been compiled nousbases@lists.riseup.net and nousbases-info@lists.riseup.net that permit the diffusion of the movement members experiences and information and discussion exchanges. That list now groups 300 people and organizations from 48 countries. A Web site permits also to adequately inform all Network members. Many rubrics provide highly valuable information on ongoing activities around the World.

In addition, the Network is more and more active and participates in different activities. At the World Social Forums it organized various conferences and colloquia. It was present at the European Social Forum held in Paris in 2003 and in London in 2004 as well as at the the America’s Social Forum in Ecuador in 2004, and at the Mediterranean Social Forum in Spain in 2005.

One of the major gatherings, which was held in Mumbai, India, in 2004, was within the framework of the World Social Forum. More than 125 participants from 34 countries defined the foundations of a coordinated global campaign.

Action priorities were identified, such as the determination of a global day of action aiming at underscoring major issues stemming from the existence of US military bases. The Network also held four discussion sessions at the Porto Alegre Social Forum in 2005. One of those pertained to the financing of the Network’s activities.

It is important to recall that the Network belongs to the Global Peace Movement. Justice and Peace organizations have become more sensitized on what was at stake regarding US military bases.

The Quito and Manta International Conference, Ecuador, March 2007

A Network World Conference for the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases was held at Quito and at Manta, Ecuador, from March 5 to 9 2007

The objective of the Conference was to underscore the political, social, environmental and economic impacts of US military bases, to make known the principles of the various Anti-Bases movements and to formally build the Network, its strategies, structure and Action Plans. The main objectives of the Conference were the following:

– Analyze the role of Foreign Military Bases and other features of military presence associated to the global dominance strategy and their impacts upon population and environment;

– Share experiences and reinforce the built solidarity resulting from the resistance battles against Foreign military Bases around the World;

– Reach a consensus on objectives mechanisms, on action plans, on coordination, on communication and on decision making of a Global Network for the abolition of all Foreign military Bases and of all other expressions of military presence; and

– Establish global action plans to fight and reinforce the resistance of local people and ensure that these actions are being coordinated at the international level.

Conclusion

This article has focussed on the Worldwide development of US military power. The US tends to view the Earth surface as a vast territory to conquer, occupy and exploit. The fact that the US Military splits the World up into geographic command units vividly illustrates this underlying geopolitical reality. Humanity is being controlled and enslaved by this Network of US military bases. .

The ongoing re-deployment of US troops and military bases has to be analyzed in a thorough manner if we wish to understand the nature of US interventionism in different regions of the World. This militarisation process is charactersied by armed aggression and warfare, as well as interventions called “cooperation agreements”. The latter reaffirmed America’s economic design design in the areas of trade and investment practices. Economic development is ensured through the miniaturization or the control of governments and organizations. Vast resources are thereby expended and wasted in order to allow such control to be effective, particuarly in regions which have a strategic potential in terms of wealth and resources and which are being used to consolidate the Empire’s structures and functions.

The setting up of the International Network for the Abolition of Foreign Military Bases turns out to be an extraordinary means to oppose the miniaturization process of the Planet. Such Network is indispensable and its growth depends on a commitment of all the People of the World. It will be extremely difficult to mobilize them, but the ties built up by the Network among its constituant resistence movements are a positive element, which is ultmately conducive to more cohesive and coordinated battle at the World level.

The Final Declaration of the Second International Conference against Foreign Military Bases which was held in Havana in November 2005 and was endorsed by delegates from 22 countries identifies most of the major issues, which confront mankind. This Declaration constitutes a major peace initative. It establishes international solidarity in the process of disarmament. .

  2. very interesting, but I don’t agree with you
    Idetrorce

  3. haha this is y i luv USA!!!
    god bless our country lol!

  4. look during these times of globalization there is always going to be an imperialistic superpower, considering history would you rather have say, Russia or China be the country to have military and political dominance, or the U.S.?? anyone with any commen sense would choose the latter..we are not perfect but our human rights record makes these other options frightning…beside the fact that wherever the U.S. “occupies” they leave Christianity and Democracy as permanent gifts (I couldnt think of anything better) in your article you named countries that still have huge amounts of U.S. military bases; South Korea, Germany, and Japan are a few of the worlds strongest democracies as well as economic powers…please try to argue that Vietnam is better off now than if we would have succeded there as well….come on!!

    • So where in our constitution, or any of our nations founding documents, do we read about the need for us to be a world “imperialistic superpower”? If you don’t care much for the constitution, where do you feel we morally derive the power to run the rest of the world. What if someone doesn’t want American Christianity or Democracy? Do we force it down their throats at the end of a rifle? You also seem to be making the assumption that American military presence is the reason Germany and S. Korea are such strong nations. I suppose that means Cuba, Iraq, Afghanistan, and a multitude of corrupt African states are democratic superpowers as well…oops.

  5. Nixin,

    The way you aruge is hilarious and pathetic.
    1) US is not the best but better then the rest
    2) Any person with “common sense” understands this.
    3) And one biproduct of american occupation is “christianity and democracy” and that is good!

    And you seemingly do not need any proof or other voices than your own WHITE AMERICAN voice
    to second these hilarious arguments. The world, thank god, is diffrent than Disney world.

    I am not afraid of RUSSIA or CHINA. And then I have not been subjected to state propaganda towards these nations/cultures as any “common sense” american have been. And believe me, as we now experiance a change in the hegemony from USA towards the east, CHINA & RUSSIA, I believe one thing will certianily IMPROVE and that is the AMERICAN BULLSHIT AND DOUBLEMORAL will vanish and put where it belongs = trash!

    Let´s ask the philipinnes, the nicas, the iraq´s about the “gifts” of the white american´s god and with it a “democracy” that is in place only to obey the White house. Why not ask every nation that have been a subject to American colonialism and occupation? You, nixin, have no voice in this which is soo obvious. It´s not the aggressors that OWN the word how much they try to. And yes! Vietnamn is such a BETTER place without US! Ofcourse it is. How? In every way but mostly becasue they would no be your slaves! And so slowly Latin America is rising out of your dungeon and uniteing! Because they KNOW that they will be SO MUCH BETTER OFF when they are not subjected by imperialism by U.S. Why isn´t!? You country suck! You country is racist. Your country start and fund wars. Your country lost in Vietnamn. Your country should not be in Vietnamn in the first place! You country kills, murders, tortyres, rapes and steals. Your country never pays it fees. Your country roam as a blind phat bull that only feasts on phat (which explains your country´s stat today!). The list goes on. And on. And on. And the fact is cristalclear. VIETNAMN IS A MUCH BETTER PLACE THANX TO KICK US ASS IN THE WAR.!!!! As Iraq also was before your ILLEGAL invasion and american privatisation of the Iraqi society and oil!!!

    The deadliest combination in the world has been WHITE CHRISTIAN MEN roaming around the world with a mission. Be it “civilization” or “democracy” it has always been done with the sword and blood.

    Last time I heard something from South Korea they where having HUGE manifestation against US. And how about those japanese manifestations against the U.S. military bases due to rapes?! They hate your as and you are to ignorate to understand it since it´s not in english. Just have a look at your god, your market economy.

    *hehehe*

    The reports of the “mental recession” of US is endless.
    Come globalisation, high fuel prices or global warming U.S. is out of the game.
    The evil empire is shaking. The end is near.
    So much for that fundamental chrisianity

    Now Nixin, if you need books to enlight yourself plz do take that time.
    Eat one less burger a day and save us all!
    And never mind the recession of the american empire.
    You will never understand why and how since you are not mentally capable of
    grasping the world. You mind has been colonialised by your state.

    Rest asure though, that the world will be a much better place in a couple of years when US oil greed, double moral, egocentrism and colonialism will not be around.

    • well, it sounds like we have a communist on our hands… the one thing you are forgetting is that people from all around the world travel to America for a chance to actually be something to have a life better than poverty to have a chance to be FREE (although with obama that *freedome is a stretch) you want to go up against the worlds greatest military super power go ahead let anyone try they will fall like all the rest America is the home of the free because of the brave you think its a world take over being that we have bases all around the world hell i say we dont have enough i say we need more and more and more hell let us take over the world….. after all its better than communism and if you think America will fall you are wrong because there will always be people who are willing to fight for a better life we have faced hard times and we will undoubtably face them again but one thing is certain we will remain we will survive we will rebuild and make it stronger than ever before you talk about propoganda thats all you speak….. if you dont stand behind our troops feel free to stand infront of them

      • Do you at all know what communism is?
        Or socialism?
        And now I am not after the mainstreet american ignorant defintion of it?
        Because if you knew you couldn´t go on like you do.

        And do you know that 50% of all those that come to USA actually return! I know,
        it´s hard to believe when the only thing you know is that you are an exception but
        the fact is that USA is not the Greatest land on earth and that your hegemony is lost.

        Now, these are facts and have nothing to do with ignorant Americans screaming/crying
        COOOMMUUUNISM while your national dept is one of the highest in the world and your
        education level and wealth differences are more like in the Third world.

        American solidiers kill and torture at random and agitate for war. That is your legacy and
        what is ingrained in you. And that has now finally backfired from all over the world. And how about
        that great “cowboy” capitalism, national character of obesticy and unsucceesfull “war on drugs”…

        And hey, as you can´t live, move and eat without oil it seems like that quest now have granted all
        of you oil. Just go and pick it up on the shores or is that a commie thing to do?

        It goes on and on and on…
        As you go down and down…

        Happy days ahead!
        Have a nice day and hope the burgers are fine and tasty.

      • If you were speaking of national defense that would be one thing, but what you describe is national offense. If you think our greatest threats to freedom come from abroad, then perhaps you haven’t been paying very close attention to whats going on within your own borders. You talk of freedom, but I dare argue, that you cannot name one aspect of your life that is not regulated by the government. Sending more troops abroad to spread democracy at the end of a rifle will not change the fact that your freedoms are vanishing before your eyes.

    • Antievil You really dont know what you are talking about. USA isnt perfect but it is, in my opinion, the best place to be. U have security and everything you want. I was born in Russia back in 1984, right before the Soviet union fell in 1991. When i was little, maybe 4-5 years old, i remember it was crazy. You’d go to a supermarket and shelfs are EMPTY!!!!!! Also inflation was sooooo bad that one year the government just cut zeros from your money… So basically if you had 10,000 rubles, now you have 100 rubbles… But prices stayed the same.. You couldnt buy food even if you had money… There was a special system in place where you had to have special government-issued cupons to buy food (its kinda like welfare but the whole country is on it lol). You were given a certain number of them each month. You were allowed to buy little quantities. Once you are out of cupons (even if you have the real money), you cant buy any food (maybe bread or patatos you could buy without cupons)…

      So this is where im going with this. I live in USA California now. I moved here back in 2000 with my family when i was 15. This is my homeland now. I never called russia my motherland and never will. Motherland is supposed to take care of you, not hurt you, starve you, brainwash you, torture you. USA gave me everything i wanted as long as i obeyed BASIC Social rules… Dont kill, dont steal, dont drive drunk, go to school, get a degree, get a job, makes some babies ect. American Dream… Its real! My Brother me and my dad opened our own business 7 years ago. Making GREAT money now, traveling the world, enjoying the life. Im ONLY 26 years old and have 4 cars. My daily driver is $140,000 2010 Maserati GT-S. I have my own house in Orange County, CA. I have a beach house in Newport Beach, CA on Balboa island. I go to Vegas at least once a month. I do what i want. My friends back in Russia still have NOTHING, and everytime my mom goes back to russia to visit family she comes back and says “Everyone there, all they do is drink, drink and drink. There are no jobs, everyone is currupt, everyone wants to rip you off”.

      So yea buddy, I dont know where you are from, but i can tell you have been brain washed by your govt. I remember that is what they tryed to do to me in russian school. Trying to brainwash that capitalism is bad, and USA is Evil hahahaha.

      But at the same time, can you blame the “blind”??? Who hates USA?? Its all poor countries where most of the population live in rual areas and have no education or very little education. They dont have Cable TV and internet. They really dont know what is going on in the world… They were supressed by their govt for so long, they dont even know whats real. All they know is what their govt tells them. They are not capable of making desicions on their own anymore. Some poor, uneducated person lets say in China has nothing. He doesnt eat every day, he lives in a dirty house etc. There is little work or help from govt. If you bring that person to america and let him live here for a year in a normal middle class family, Do you think that person would ever want to go back to his country after seeing what its like when your govt takes care of you????

    Chack your facts before you write. It will improve your accredability.

    • Juan,

      Have you checked your facts or are you opinions automatically facts?
      Most LOCALS do NOT want the “yankees” there. Most goverments and biznesses
      do. You see a differance in those actors? Oh, do you know how the booming sex industry in Bangkok came around? Yes, thanx to the “saving the world” police that just need to FUCK on their leave… That´s american “ARMY BASE!” biznez for ya…
      Now, I would like you to present all the faults in the above articale.
      Screeming is soo much easier than talking sometimes…

      Oh, do you want me to send you the links from the “anti-US base” protests in Italy and in Japan or will you find that by yourself when you do your “fact searching”? And make sure you at least read some of the articals about the rapes in relations to the army bases… Or is that too much from the “real” world for ya?

      *hugh*

      • you are so ignorant…. I bet you are from middle east for sure! The only idiots that want usa out of their countries are radical fanatics like you. So you can freely make bombs and go around terrorising the world. FUCK YOU! All you radical idiot do is keep the population “blind” (uneducated) so they dont know whata fuck is going on. You ugly fuckers cant get “some” so what do you do?? you take womens rights away and stone them….U fuckers beat children, go in a bus full of INNOCENT people and blow them up, you board trains and blow up INNOCENT people, u go to markets full of people and suicide bomb innocent people….. Wait, did i meantion you kill INNOCENT people?? And dont even fucking try to tell me that US soldiers are killing innocent people in Iraq and shit like that… Its a motherfucking war-zone, GETTA FUCK OUT or be killed.

        IGNORANCE BREEDS VIOLENCE

    • Juan whether your statement is fact or not, do we really need to be subsidizing the national defense budgets of Germany, South Korea, Japan, etc? If your brother asked you to subsidize his mortgage would you. He is your brother after all. Never mind the fact that he chooses not to work while you pay the bills.

  11. So You are saying that you don’t like democracy and rather live with communism

    • Oh Alex what a dark bipolar world you live in!

      US army bases do not symbolize or mean democracy AT ALL!
      Acutally US DEMOCRACY the last 8 years has been the laughing
      stock of the world. US is an IMPERIALISTIC and COLONIAL state
      that have not INTEREST in spreading democracy generally but specifically
      when it serves their interest. But that interest might as well support
      dictatorship or any other combination. US IMPERIALISTIC HISTORY OUTLINES
      these. Did you at all take history? No, probably not, since you all are
      keept UNEDUCATED.

      Now, the world hosts so many more alternatives that your shortcut brain
      does. Outside the “white” anglosaxian world lies alternatives much more
      democratic and sustainable.

      One day, somewhere btw the mall and McDonalds, it will hit you. That US is not
      the world and that the world actually have passed (what was there at all) you long time ago. The power of economics, politics, development, science, trade aso is shifting… Left in US will be the biggest deficit and corporate owned DEMOCRACY and “white trash” in the world and a real fear of the Other might it be “communism”, “terrorism” or just plain culture diversity…
      … so keep screaming COMMUNISM as soon as reality destroys the all well known fact that US has NEVER stood 4 democracy.

      *hahha*

      Enjoy Alex.
      The future looks soo bright…

  12. Sorry, I can’t take an article seriously if it has bad grammar…

  13. I not agree,regarding the US-Iraqi relationship in future.US Politicians can only expect with P.M Nurl-Malki who is non-constitutional and his gov;t is also unconstitutional.How can US say that his relationship is better after war,how did US expect that their relationship with Iraq is continue in future,US only expect with P.M Nurl-Malki gov,t but one thing remember,In case of Saddam Hussain Rivals,US can not expect them because His rival follow Saddam Hussain policies which is against US interest and other policies.And one thing which I observe that US and his Coalitions says that we are Sacrificed our life,what thay Sacrificed they Sacrificed thier economy which is in Recession in which tens of thousand of US-European people lost their jobs, they Sacrificed thier own nation rights,they Sacrificed the Iraqi and Afghanistans nation life by killing.raping and murdaring due to this unreal and nonsence war against Terrorist and Extremist.I think the politician need aprep-class to learn about the different between Sacrificed and War against Terrorist and the difference between Terrorist and Extremist.

    I can not expect the new president B.Obama any policy regarding war against Terrorist and Extremist,Nor I can not believe that the use of force is favourable to solve Terrorist and Extremist.

    Remember one thing,US Empire is now at its end,US power is continue to decline whether In persian gulf,central asia,southkorea,japan,South america,Latin america and europe,africa their power starts declining and US have nothing to stop his declining stage,US also unsuccessful in Vietnam War and US also unsuccessful in Iraq and Afghanistan war,US also unsuccessful to control its own financial crisis.USA is unsuccessful state..

  14. 3) And one biproduct of american occupation is “christianity and democracy”……

    I get it…
    You said,
    1. Kill the Buddhists,
    2. Kill the Hindus,
    3. Kill the Muslims
    4. Kill the atheists
    and…
    Use the American Christian terrorist illegal invaders to promote violent Christianity in any means.

    Do you know that EACH and EVERY civilization other than the Christian onces that promoted REAL democracy has faced Western lead Christian terrorism? Examples of this India’s Hindu democracy went under attack thanks to UK Christian terrorists who created Pakistan… how about Sri Lanka’s Buddhist democracy? You are asking for a world that is full of Christian terrorists!

    Democracy is a Hindu/Buddhist/Roman thing. Democracy is actually AGAINST original Christian bible!

  15. Those maps are false. There is no US military presence in France whatsoever, be it bases or troops.

    • Talk is sooo cheap nowdays especially from pro-american voices…

      Give me any facts that your claim is right compared to sources that
      do say that there are US MILITARY PRESENCE IN FRANCE.

      /A

  16. Omg, I must say this is truly owning… Thanks for giving such a nice read, you made my day.

  17. The Guam Base Buildup is a joint venture of the American, Japanese, and Guam governments and will accommodate the influx of nearly 35,000 military and civilian personnel.

  18. Nice article my friend but bit inaccurate and incomplete. It is true that U.S has become a colonial imperialistic state but it is not will of its people. I have lived in Unite States for last 14 years. It is a great country full of potential and opportunity, however the problem is the the Globalist agenda and the new world order , who is behind the white house. US lost its democracy when JFK was assassinated. All presidents since have been put in place by the corporate elite that are only using the US as its muscles to control the world, resources included. The name of the most wealthiest people on the planet is the Bilderberg Group( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_Group ) They meet once a year and they are the ones that determine our fates. They all come from all backgrounds white,black,Jewish, Muslim, Christian,etc the only constant is money they are in control because of money and they want more of it. By any means necessary. They have been behind everything major that has happend in the world for the past 50+ years.

  20. Entire of the pre-eminent traditions in golf unceasingly comes at the first LPGA main of the year, when the champion, and anyone she invites, takes a leap into Poppie’s Pond neighbourhood the 18th fresh at the Dinah Shore Competition course.

    On Sunday, after Stacy Lewis wager the finishing touches on her earliest LPGA induce constantly, The Golf Sluice caught her appealing people over to hole in the pond with her. As the cameras closed in, Lewis instinctively told her gathering, that included caddie Travis Wilson, sister Janet, mammy Carol and dad Dale, to grab out far, because the ahead scrap of the lake is shallow.
