    Military Empires: A Visual Database

    "The United States of America, unlike any other nation, maintains a massive network of foreign military installations around the world.

    How was this created and how is it continued? Some of these physical installations are on land occupied as spoils of war. Most are maintained through collaborations with governments, many of them brutal and oppressive governments benefiting from the bases’ presence.

    In many cases, human beings were displaced to make room for these military installations, often depriving people of farmland, adding huge amounts of pollution to local water systems and the air, and existing as an unwelcome presence.


    To explore this database, click on map markers or use the dashboard to make selections:

    The current version only includes data about USA’s foreign military outposts, but future versions of this app will include information about foreign military bases maintained by all nations. "

    This may assist our colonial members.

    Sounds remarkably like the chinkies and their banana plantations and railroads in SEA....
