    Doesn't make much sense, when the size of the military is being cut to pre WWII days.

    Your source is questionable. They offer no proof whatsoever, no quotes, no documents of their own Nothing, to back up their assertions. What we have here is nothing but spin of a New York Times Article.

    Ans we know they have an agenda.

    "n reality, rather than “fighting terrorism,” the real purpose of the bases is to shape the world political order in accordance with needs of US imperialism,..."

    We are plussing up in Africa. DoD is expanding the National Guard's state partnership program to include more African nations. Moldova has been our oldest partner, but we just added Botswana.

    WASHINGTON — As American intelligence agencies grapple with the expansion of the Islamic State beyond its headquarters in Syria, the Pentagon has proposed a new plan to the White House to build up a string of military bases in Africa, Southwest Asia and the Middle East.

    The bases could be used for collecting intelligence and carrying out strikes against the terrorist group’s far-flung affiliates.

    Paul Wolfowitz, a leading neoconservative, penned the Wolfowitz Doctrine shortly after the Soviet collapse. This doctrine is the basis of US foreign and military policy.

    The doctrine states:

    Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.

    Notice that Washington’s “first objective” is not peace, not prosperity, not human rights, not democracy, not justice. Washington’s “first objective” is world hegemony. Only the very confident so blatantly reveal their agenda.
