There are now more than 1,100 U.S. military bases dotting the globe.Submitted by go213mph on Wed, 07/18/2012 - 09:16
Seems like President Paul publicizing the fact we had 900 bases around the world created a typical response for th MIC. 900 bases? Is that all? We need a couple hundred more!
This also made me wonder if our massive world leading prison population includes prisoners that the US is holding in other countries. I bet not. It's getting so bad insurance companies might do well to start offing K&R (kidnapping and Ransom) insurance to regluar middle class citizens. Used to be only wealthy CEO's needed K&R insurance policies. At the rate we are going we are all going to need to insure ourselves from being kidnapped by our own government.
