Each relationship that has led to foreign basing is different, many changing in character from one decade to the next. For years, Japan's sensitivity to nuclear power kept the Nimitz-class carriers from being based there.
A list of bases and their supported missions, with host nation feelings on the matter, would be exhausting to read, much less compile.
Of note, many businesses near the larger bases see significant economic gains just from the U.S. What is the status of US military presence in the Islamic World and vice versa (means how many soldiers from say Pakistan are deployed in USA for embassy protection or just military attaches etc.. The forum is getting flooded with these sock-puppet accounts, especially after India and Pakistan had that fallout over the border which led to calls for war. If you look closely enough on Google or Bing Maps, some places are blanked out, hidden from public view.
The United States military has a foothold in every corner of the world, with military bases on every continent.
That's what Josh Begley, a data artist, found out when he embarked on a project to map all known U.S. The project, which he warns is ongoing, was inspired by Trevor Paglen's book "Blank Spots on the Map" which goes inside the world of secret military bases that are sometimes censored on maps. Begley has found the coordinates for 650 bases, and published pictures for 644 of them — although a few are blacked out, not displayed, or blurred.
He started working on the project at the beginning of November, simply armed with the Department of Defense 2013 Base Structure Report, an inventory of all the real estate owned by the Pentagon around the world, a few media reports that uncovered secret bases, and a computer script he had used last year to make another mapping project that displayed aerial pictures of U.S. He modified that script, which he made along with his friend and fellow digital artist Jer Thorp, to grab a series of coordinates from a database file, query the Google and Bing maps' APIs, and automatically capture a satellite picture of that spot. This manual work was also necessary in cases where the bases are secret, or at least not officially acknowledged by the U.S.
Google Earth satellite pictures were reportedly used to pinpoint a target by terrorists who killed 164 people in a tragic attack in Mumbai, India, which prompted some to call for a ban on publishing these types of pictures. This capability can theoretically be used to plot terror attacks, he explained, but it can also provide great geographical insight. Begley, on his part, said he would understand if someone criticized the project, but he doesn't see anything wrong with it. Nobody owns the skies above secret bases, so there's no law that prevents privately-owned or public satellites from snapping pictures from space. Google Maps, for example, doesn't show an image for the secret drone base exposed by Wired. And in other cases the censorship — for lack of a better word — can be even more imaginative, as it is with images of the Volkel Air Base, a military base in the Netherlands. These are cases in which Google and Microsoft were asked not to publish a clear image of the sites. Take a look at the most interesting aerial views, as chosen by Begley himself, in the gallery below. This base in North Carolina has been used for years by the CIA to train agents for terrorist attacks. This is "the most powerful transmission station in the Southern Hemisphere," according to the Daily Mail. Jeremy Scahill exposes this base in his award-winning book "Dirty Wars," where he describes it as a "launching pad" for the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the secretive elite military organization that comprises the Navy SEALs. So are those bases now UN bases, after all, the UN is more like a launching platform for our armed conflicts.
To me i feel that world war 3 is iminent and is a real threat if nobody else does thats cool but just look at the countries surronding iran and loook at the united states presence therre its simple we want iran and we will get it to prevent them from becoming a nuclear power in the world. I don't blame Iran, one minute, for protecting their homeland and people, with whatever defenses they choose, from a potential attack from Israel or an invasion from the United States. So we know its all about the oil, but its also all about denying that oil to other players.
Western empires that arose after the sixteenth century adopted Machiavelli’s ruthless, deceitful, immoral, and bloody Realpolitic that depended on strong armies and striking fear into opponents. Racism and a self-righteous bigoted attitude toward the “other” laid the foundation for the imperial west to conquer, enslave, and commit outrageous genocides and holocausts across the world’s southern hemisphere, the habitat of the barbaric primitive dark “other”. In all its foreign interventions and wars the Congress has only issued a Declaration of War five times as the Constitution requires; none have been issued since World War II.
Historians have called the Spanish American War the first media driven war in American history.
The “incident” was furnished when an explosion on the USS Maine occurred on February 15, 1898 while docked in Havana Harbor. The powerful role of the media in creating, inciting, and pushing for wars cannot be underestimated.
The same men who own and run Wall Street and the Federal Reserve Banks are of the same oligarchy that owns the U.S.
These men, mainly Jewish, within and out of government manufactured the lies that pushed the U.S.

Please Watch this Important, shocking, and revealing VIDEO of Amy Goodman’s interview with former General Wes Clark, former head of NATO, who reveals the shocking truth about the Pentagon’s Plan to invade Iraq with no reason or evidence to do so and how it plans after Iraq then to attack six more Middle East nations in five years. In a rational, civilized, informed and civically involved populace such revelations would have led to a revolution against the powerful political, economic, and media elite who use the U.S. In addition to America’s military supremacy as its main instrument of foreign policy, the U.S. What Americans don’t see as a consequence of their Government’s militarism and their media inspired “support the troops” bumper stickers is the heavy cost borne by the victimized innocent populations of America’s arrogant and deadly militarism abroad. President James Monroe issued this declaration that prevents any European nation from interfering in the affairs of Latin America which the U.S. States that military force should only be used to win an overwhelming victory in a short period of time and that U.S.
This informal doctrine, never officially articulated by the administration, argued that the best way to ensure stability in regions of interest to the United States was to combat instability wherever it may occur.
Declares it is the policy of the United States government to go after all terrorists with a global reach and the states which harbor them. But they are the most powerful intimidating message to the over 170 countries that host these bases. When you hear of “National Interest” immediately think of MONEY for the rich and the industrial-military-corporate complex.
Please watch this VIDEO of President Dwight Eisenhower’s famous speech waring the American people of the power and corrupt influence of what he called the “Military-Industrial Complex”. Here is a former General and President who knew the truth, spoke the truth, but as is the case with all warnings to the American people on matters of corruption it is unheeded and forgotten, thus the corrupt political, business, and military alliance continues to roll unabated, killing abroad and bankrupting the nation.
Every government in the world is immoral, hypocritical, and infected with double standards. America’s Economic and Military power allows it to defy the world and bomb and invade any nation it wishes.
It is my sincere hope that Americans understand the widespread animosity against America’s Pro Israel and militaristic policy in the Muslim. When the last conventional carriers were slated for decommissioning, an agreement was made to shift a nuclear-powered carrier over. First, if the base location doesn't deter hostility, it reduces response time, which can often reduce the required response. It doesn't detail numbers in each country, and many of the countries have only a few personnel, but there's an obvious overtone to where U.S, interests seem to lie. It may not display this or other websites correctly.You should upgrade or use an alternative browser. The people deployed in Jacobabad are for support of the PAF F-16's, and are just supporting personnel, engineers etc. Now that it has calmed down they might stop flooding the forum, but that is being too hopeful. That day when Asian powers till rise to completely wipe off western influence in Asian politics and economy. Sounds easy enough, but some publicly available coordinates aren't particularly precise, so Begley had to manually take screenshots for those (and he still has to finish correcting some mistakes). Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel officially revealed its location on Tuesday — even though it had been something of an open secret. In 2000, pictures of the once secret Area 51, taken by a Russian satellite, were leaked on the Internet.
The two companies declined to answer specific questions about the sites, and about Begley's project. Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe. There is a US military presence there because it is a very important strategic airfield in that region of the world. None more so than the Israeli forbidden for America to talk to region of the Middle East, hence America’s current wars, unilateral decision to attack Syria, and the imposition of harsh sanctions, isolation, and probable war against Iran. He strongly condemned empires and governments who sought to implement the unrealistic idealistic romanticism of lofty, laudable, and moral ideas unless they prove useful for domestic deceit. The wars have been mainly carried out under Presidential directives witout Congressional approval. Foreign Policy and its resultant ramifications and consequences around the world can ever describe it as being wise and intelligent. Immediately the warmongerers in the media and the government blamed Spain and successfully pushed for a Declaration of War on Spain. The media either ignores, sanitizes, or fabricates stories and images that present the heroic courage of American soldiers fighting the evil, uncivilized, barbaric enemy, an enemy whose weapons are guns against the world’s most powerful military. Reasoning that no matter how seemingly insignificant the areas where instability may arise, violence and disorder can intensify and spread, ultimately threatening United States interests at home and abroad. A key element is the right of the United States to Preemptively attack any group or state deemed to pose an emerging threat. They hate ‘US” because we BOMB and INVADE their countries and give Israel a carte-blanche protection for its decade’s long murderous and ethnic cleansing policy against the Palestinians, made refugees in their land. When a large base in Germany was recently (and temporarily) placed on a base closure list, local residents protested and implored Berlin to insist on it staying.

From Eaton's Tripoli expedition in 1804 to modern drone operations, temporary positions of opportunity have drawn the U.S. Second, it reduces the need for the region's allies to build up as much of a military, which fosters more stability in the region.
In order to respond properly, some folks and equipment are moved in to either do the work or support it.
The Pentagon says there are around 5,000 in total, and 598 in foreign countries, but those numbers are disputed by the media. The CIA site that independent journalist Jeremy Scahill uncovered in Mogadishu, Somalia, or the secret drone base unearthed by Wired's Noah Shachtman earlier this year are examples.
The men who would be tasked with this mission were classified as Task Force 88," writes Scahill in his book. It reflects the imperial attitude of white supremacy, racism, and a divine right given to the white man to seek forth new territories to civilize, Christianize, enslave, occupy, and steal the resources such lands held be they human or wealth generating. The main media tycoons at the time, Joseph Pulitzer (Jewish) and William Randolph Hearst, were relentless in their media campaign to incite public anger against the “evil” Spaniards who are crushing the freedom aspirations of the Cuban people.
The American Exceptionalism as an Empire and Imperial Power began and has never stopped since then.
Thus their single purpose is to enrich themselves, their cabal, and heavily influence and push the U.S. But we’re speaking of the American people who mostly exist in a self absorbed bubble far away from their government’s policies and those who control and manipulate them. However this doctrine was used to sell a large amount of military hardware to the Philippines, Indonesia, South Korea, other Asian nations, and the Middle East. To stymie potential problems, regional and ethnic conflicts must be addressed as early as possible. In fact it spends more on defense than dozens of other nations combined including Russia and China.
Resolutions, not when its Vetoed close to 90 UNSC against Israel, International Laws, the Fourth Geneva Convention or to any Weapons Ban treaty as the U.S. They are bases belonging to the host country's military, and there is a US presence there. It has been a staging area for some operations in Afghanistan, for example, Marines departed from Masirah on the last leg of their trip to Afghanistan to provide security for the US embasy there.
Uprooted and robbed of their livelihood, the Chagossians now live in poverty in Mauritius's urban slums, more than 1,000 miles from their homeland. Their papers ran daily headlines and cartoons to emotionally invest the American people in a war for liberty and freedom. Arms Sales is the Middle East whereEIGHT out of the top TEN nations spending on arms purchases as a Percent of their GDP are in the Middle East. But all have been considered important enough to spend significant treasure in securing, building, manning, and supporting. The postwar basing agreements were considered strategically vital to counter possible Soviet aggression in the Pacific, and the Philippine government agreed.
These bases will pop up and disappear with very few Americans ever noticing, such as the Pakistani bases mentioned by Balaji Viswanathan.
It’s violated every International and human rights laws against the use of illegal chemical weapons such as Agent Orange, Depleted Uranium and White Phosphorous.
These bases also mostly support the host country's goals, whether security, financial, relationship, or a combination.
Shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Philippine government felt the crisis was over and asked the U.S. The answer is obvious, but it is becoming more interesting as relations are finally thawing. These disgraceful acts have strategic ripples in many cases, resulting in changes to basing agreements.
And as hot as the Taiwan issue is, there is little military interaction with the island's government. About 850 islanders forced off Diego Garcia are alive today, and another 4,300 Chagossians have been born in exile. Around the world from Vietnam to Iraq it has left a legacy of children scareed for life suffering from congenital malformations to cancer yet refuses to acknowledge any responsibility. With rare exceptions, the bases are there under agreement with the host country, with many of the host countries specifically asking for more U.S.
It hasn't led to violence, but diverting money to military spending reduces what a nation is going to spend on many other programs.
Many troops were placed in temporary bases, using host facilities for short-term missions, either in direct support of combat units or as logistics bases. America’s freedom fighters became the dreaded Taliban, now America’s enemy, but surprisingly they are not on the State Department’s list of terrorist group because the U.S.
