Why do we still have military bases in...

Bulgaria, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Kuwait, South Korea, Afghanistan, Australia, Bahrain, British Indian Ocean Territory, Brazil, Cuba, Dijibouti, Greece, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Greenland, Kyrgyzstan, Netherlands, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Turkey, United Kingdom.?

Then my next question is why no other country have military bases here in the United States?

1. We have troops there. But many of the places you mention, we do not have bases, we have space in

bases that other countries already have.

We have Canadian troops in Peterson AFB, Colorado Springs and one or two other NORAD bases.

8. I know that Canada has a base in Germany. Maybe because we don't need one here. We

 

do have bases were foreign soldiers come to some military school to take courses. I remember back in the 60s at Fort Bliss,TX and even Fort Holibird, Maryland. I don't know if they still come over but I bet they do.
