US has now 1.5+ Million Homeless Children but maintains 1000+ Military Bases WorldWide!
With one and a half million American children now homeless, BBC Panorama reporter Hilary Andersson meets the school pupils who go hungry in the richest country on Earth. From those living in the storm drains under Las Vegas to the tent cities now springing up around the United States, Panorama finds out how the poor are surviving in America and asks whatever happened to Barack Obama's vision for the country.
Depending on whom you ask or what source you consult, writes Turse: "there are more than 1,000 US military bases dotting the globe. To be specific, the most accurate count is 1,077. Unless it's 1,088. Or, if you count differently, 1,169. Or even 1,180. Actually, the number might even be higher. Nobody knows for sure."
