The United States maintains more than 737 publicly recognized
military bases as well as hundreds of secret bases and installations
in 140 countries around the world. With more than 400,000 US
troops "forward deployed" at these bases, they make U.S. foreign
military interventions, wars like the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and even
nuclear war possible.

the long-standing mammoth U.S. airbase in Aviano to peaceful civilian
