Where in the World Is the U.S. Military? Everywhere.



As we enter the 17th year of the United States' "war on terror," it is both appropriate, and necessary, to take stock of where our troops are located and for what purpose. The deaths of U.S. soldiers this fall in Niger were a stark reminder that much of the American public, and even many of our country's lawmakers, aren't exactly sure what the war on terror looks like, much less where many of our other military operations are located. According to a new map published this week by the Costs of War Project at Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, the U.S. is waging this war on terror in 76 countries or more simply put, 40 percent of the countries on this planet.

3. Russian and China would love this.

Especially China. Africa is full of mineral resources and the labor to mine them. China would happily occupy this continent.

4. I don't have a problem with China. I have a problem with the spread of

the depravity of white supremacy. It's one of the, if not the most destructive global forces EVAR.
