Because no other country in the world can afford to pay in briberies with their tax payer dollars to support military bases oversea in foreign lands, yes we the tax payer have to pay for the land and the permits to have those bases in other countries

Is call briberies, is money for everybody else in world from the generous US tax payers but not for the people in the US that earn that money.

It is relatively simple. We have no real threats in our neighborhood. Cuba is contained and rather insignificant and venezuela does not have the ability to harm us. The second issue is it would be a security risk. You only trust folks so far but sometimes neccesity outweighs the trust issue. But the us is not in a position of need. Lastly, the us has the most advanced and powerful miltary machine in the world so why on earth would they let a foreign power post up behind their lines?

A poster already said it but the USA defends other countries to assure that resources and relations with said countries aren't compromised. Like another poster said as well we have no need for protection from foreign armies since we have the world's strongest. In short we don't need bases here and if we did we'd be called Israel.

Although other countries have no bases here, we do train foreign military at bases in the USA, pilots etc. Also alot of the bases overseas have military from other countries, stationed there.

We must also remember the farmers in Iraq who beat the USA, and the soon to be defeat by the hands of the goat herders in Afghanistan.

Star for you!

Last I checked, the objective was to oust a dictator in Iraq and take that countries ability to threaten other countries in the region.

Objective achieved, we're pulling out as per the plan.

You're trying to spin the meaning of "defeat" so you can take a shot at the US Military. You're just a bitter Ausie and you're in the very much minority. I work with Ausies almost daily. A hardy bunch with great attitudes toward life. They get it's not all roses but soilder on.

There isn't a military power in the world that could go toe-to-toe with the US Military. Russia and China would provide the most trouble. But here's the key thing: There's no reason for them to do so.

I suppose the reverse could be asked.

Why does America need around 900 bases in around 130 countries?

That still doesn't answer the question.

Can another country justify its presence in the US?

You crack me up, instead of answering OP's question u keep repeating the same question.

In short, you can't find a descent answer to justify America's presence in well kinda every damn country.
Yet you would want a descent answer to why another country isn't allowed or welcome to open a base in the US.

I find it sickening to see in times like these that most of you Americans still have this "atlas complex" the world is resting on our shoulders, tbh laugh out loud.

Why is it in times like these when the world is cracking up in every single nation you people still think the US is doing better.

If only u could grasp the idea how people look upon America.

We are all the same, puppets of the master. We are all being betrayed by the same people.

Get past the frigging nation borders.

Many of them are from wars of the past. some may have outlived their usefulness but are kept in place at the request of the host country.

When countries ask the US to vacate, the US complies. Several in Japan have closed due to noise concerns and the political landscape. But all this is off topic.

I'd like you to respond to the question asked before yours: Why would another country need a base in the US?

The country is worse of today, and is now a breeding ground for terrorists. Moreso, than what it was under Saddam's control. So no, objective not achieved. The USA pulled out because they were losing, and have now lost. Both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were/are wars that cannot be won. Just how the USA lost the Vietnam war. It is virtually the same, just set in the Middle East.


You're trying to spin the meaning of "defeat" so you can take a shot at the US Military. You're just a bitter Ausie and you're in the very much minority. I work with Ausies almost daily. A hardy bunch with great attitudes toward life. They get it's not all roses but soilder on.


The USA was defeated in Iraq. Terrorists are raising hell there, much worse than what it was when Saddam was in power. So, if one were to address the Iraq war under "official" circumstance, as you did. The war was very much a failure.


There isn't a military power in the world that could go toe-to-toe with the US Military. Russia and China would provide the most trouble. But here's the key thing: There's no reason for them to do so.


Keep on wanking mate. The USA hasn't won a proper war since the assistance they gave in WW2.

Korea - Stalemate
Vietnam - Defeat (At the hands of farmers)
1st Gulf War - essentially a loss, considering Saddam regained power
2nd Gulf War/Iraq War - Loss, due to increased instability
Afghanistan - Will be a loss once left to the control of the Afghan National Army.

Well those are interesting OPINIONS you have stated. But they are not reality.

Do you care to provide evidence stating otherwise?

It is well known that violence has picked up in the Middle East over the past 12 years. So the Iraq war was a failure, because violence originating from that country has risen dramatically.

Korea was a stalemate

Vietnam was a LOSS, regardless of what your propaganda teaches US citizens. The USA pulled out - Vietnam is now a Communist country - therefore, the USA lost

First Guld War - loss, Saddam regained power - which eventually led to the 2nd Gulf War which was also a loss due to reasons stated above.

And, we all know Afghanistan will be a loss.

Your reply is just evidence that you have no rebuttal.

How do I rebut your opinion?

The objectives for each were not total domination and occupation for ever.

Your lables of "pretty much was" is opinion you formed that best support your desire to smear anything American.

Here we go. Bring out your "you are anti-American" cannons.

Regardless if they were or were not for the total domination, they were still all losses under the circumstances in which they were set.

And no, i am not smearing anything American. Just telling you the truth that you find so hard to believe due to the propaganda which you have been subjected to, and in return now believe.

There is. The United Nations is in New York City. It's the HeadQuarters and HeadQuarters Company of the New World Order. Of course technically Rockefeller gave away the land so it's no longer in the USA ... but you know what I mean.
