WASHINGTON, Jun 10 (IPS) - Much like its successful military campaign in Iraq, the Pentagon is moving at seemingly breakneck speed to re-deploy U.S. forces and equipment around the world in ways that will permit Washington to play ''GloboCop'', according to a number of statements by top officials and defence planners.

While preparing sharp reductions in forces in Germany, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, military planners are talking about establishing semi-permanent or permanent bases along a giant swathe of global territory -- increasingly referred to as ''the arc of instability'' -- from the Caribbean Basin through Africa to South and Central Asiaa and across to North Korea.

The latest details, disclosed by the 'Wall Street Journal' on Tuesday, include plans to increase U.S. forces in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa across the Red Sea from Yemen, set up semi-permanent ''forward bases'' in Algeria, Morocco and possibly Tunisia, and establish smaller facilities in Senegal, Ghana and Mali that could be used to intervene in oil-rich West African countries, particularly Nigeria.

what a shame this is probably a correct statistacal assumption assuming nothing changes other than our sex lives
it doesn't say very much for our society in my humble opinion
nor our future as a power
our population explosion along with tech explosion has allready reduced America to a nation of service, it is the only growth industry aside from the military, which will be the largest
this is why we give illegal aliens that enter the military and serve priority citizenship acceptance [ Bush ordered manifest] and NYC is going to raise taxes on junk food cause it is a service industry and obiesty has over taken tobacco as the leading killer of citizens
our population will increase and quality of existience, not life, will decline and our childrens children will be fodder for the military industrial complex
has to be a better way out
