I found this to be an interesting and well put together article. I had always wondered where and how many US troops were deployed around the world.
Although I may not agree with everything the author claims in the article, it is still worth reading.

Full story


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.

This map has some inaccuracies.

For starters, there are no longer any American military bases in France:

Also, I couldn't find any in Indonesia.

Yea, I think you are right about Indonesia, I know we sent some troops there after the Tsunami for aid but they objected to them being armed so I think we left pretty quickly.
Concerning France, I dont think we have had troops there for a very long time now but I'm not expert, I am just passing on an article.

Your welcome Uber, thanks to you to for your input. After your post I made another,more detailed analysis of the map and discovered a few more possible errors.
Even though it isnt completely accurate, it still gave me a new perspective on the many country's that we have a military presence in. Its no wonder that some people see us as an Imperialistic country but hey, its still my country and Im proud to be a part of it

In most countries our presence is much, much smaller than the armed forces of the country and not enough to influence the politics of that country. Having presences in those countries is, in my opinion, just so the military can rapidly respond to potential situations that develop around the world.
