      The U.S. has about 850 military bases in 135 countries and it is responsible for 43 percent of military spending worldwide.No country in the world has so many military bases overseas as the U.S.The
      U.S. has stationed its huge troops in the Asia-Pacific region under the
      pretext of coping with the "attack to the south" by the Soviet Union in
      the period of the Cold War. But it has steadily increased the number of
      military strongholds in that region and hastened the forward-deployment
      of U.S. forces even now when the Cold War is over and it has no
      military rivals.The main thrust of the U.S. Asia strategy is to
      ward off the influence of other big powers upon this region, contain
      the expansion of the sphere of their forces and establish a U.S. style
      order of domination over it by force of arms.South Korea and
      Japan are outposts for carrying out the U.S. Asia strategy and the
      forward-deployment of U.S. forces is used as a military lever for its
      implementation.The U.S. claims that a lot of military bases set
      up by it in Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, the United Arab
      Emirates and other Middle East regions are aimed to beat back the
      possible aggression from Iran and ensure the security of the oil
      transport route.In the middle of the 1990s the U.S. set up its
      military facilities in Hungary, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia
      and Southern Kosovo under the pretext of peace-keeping and humanitarian
      activities.The U.S. set up at least 19 new military bases after the September 11, 2001 incident.Latin America is no exception as far as the issue of U.S. military bases is concerned.The
      U.S. put five air force bases and two naval bases of Colombia under its
      control under the pretext of "helping it in anti-drug operations and
      those to rout anti-government troops." It is set to deploy more than 1
      400 personnel and lots of arms and equipment there. U.S. military bases
      are operating in El Salvador, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica, etc.Many
      U.S. military bases whose number is on the steady increase in various
      countries and regions are unanimously chided by the international
      community for being advanced bases for realizing its ambition for world
      domination. -0-
