The reason no one else (other countries) wants to have bases anywhere in the world like the USA, it's because no one else wants to be labeled the:

#1 terrorist country in the world!

Are you mentally ill?

There are plenty of countries that do the "evil" deeds with America


what about China?

You are such a fool though there is no point in arguing with you.

Oh i know of the corruption that goes on but despite all the bad the US does if the US did not exist their would be more wars and more disorder in the world and that is a fact. Any educated person on foreign policy would realize that to be true but a child would wish to debate it and play devils advocate even though the opposing view is the wrong one and can easily be put down with the correct promotion of facts.

Someone in an earlier post said it best in my opinion. There is just no need for a foreign country to set up shop. There is no threat of anything on the western side of the world. Foreign countries, if need be, will train with US troops in whatever they need, and be done with it. The US maintains a "forward presence" to avoid things like WW2, Vietnam, and the Iraqi campaign. Its hard for the US to keep bases open in other countries. It demands a lot of money, time and manpower. They are constantly looking to see what they can consolidate and try to save money. It is true, just having a US power around is sometimes enough to discourage any wrongdoing. That is the basis of being forward deployed.

Actually, if you want to get technical, there ARE foreign outposts on US soil.

Holloman Air Force Base is home to the German Air Force Flying Training Center.

The German Air Force Tactical Training Center (GAF TTC) was activated as a tenant unit at Holloman AFB May 1, 1996. This program, based on a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the two governments and financed by the German Federal Ministry of Defence (FMOD), is unique by the way that it allows the German Air Force to deploy and station their TORNADO A/C permanently at Holloman AFB, NM. With the activation, 300 German military personnel and 12 Tornado aircraft joined Team Holloman. The mission was to conduct a Fighter Weapons Instructor Course (FWIC) for the TORNADO and advanced tactical training in preparation for combat.

The Tactical Training Center was redesignated the German Air Force Flying Training Center (GAF FTC) July 1, 1999 in conjunction with their growing mission. In addition, German Air Force pilots and WSOs are now learning to fly the TORNADO at Holloman AFB and instructor aircrews are being trained as well. As of July 2007 there are 600 German military personnel and 21 Tornado aircraft assigned to Holloman AFB, NM. These numbers may increase up to 900 personnel and 42 A/C, depending on the actual training needs.

There are numerous reasons the German Air Force trains here. The area offers great flying weather and has suitable air space. Other reasons are the proximity of Holloman AFB to the German Air Force Air Defense Center (GAF ADC) at Ft. Bliss, TX and the centralizing of German aircrew training for the TORNADO at a single location.

The GAF FTC consists of two Groups, the Training Group and the Support Group. The Training Group holds the administrative staff which is necessary to plan and support the flying courses. Within the Training Group the Training Squadron is home of all the instructors and the students.

The Support Group consists of three squadrons witch are the First Line Maintenance Squadron, the Second Line Maintenance and Electronic Squadron and the Supply Squadron.

The Luftwaffe also operates out of Fort Bliss, TX. They have the headquarters of their operations there.

The Royal Netherlands Air Force has a number of F-16s in Ohio, as well as Luke AFB in Arizona. The Dutch F-16s were kind of interesting because they were painted to look very similar to USAF birds, with a small flag of the Netherlands on them.
