I have a secret, and you don't know about it.
If you knew about it, it wouldn't be much of a secret.
These bases are secret?

A full fleet though? As much as we're wasting in 100's of billions? I think we'd still be thinking too small in pricetag by todays contractor and accounting standards. Much too low.
If we can't contract it out....I don't mean to be too particular...but who would make it? Uncle Sam doesn't have vast fabrication centers and production facilities like Lockheed, Boeing and others. Uncle needs...They make.
You kinda lost me on that?
The Roman empire never really went away, it just got moved from one country to another, all you have to do is follow the Eagle image, the Romans had it, the Nazis had and now the Americans have it.
Every country wants to make its mark on history and the best way is to have an empire.

You can't contract that sort of thing out for production. Design, yes.

There's a US base about 2miles from my house that isn't on that map. It works alongside RAF Croughton which is on the map, part of the GCHQ, NSA shiz.
I would point out there are 5000 US military installations according to the article. He has only mapped those which fit his definition of secret in some respect. I think he is trying to map those facilities that are blurred out or obscured in some fashion on the popular mapping programs (Bing, Google).
Hope that Helps.
With that many US Military bases there is most likely one downstairs from me in my Apt Building.
