Once a source of hope, the US is often a source of fear. Closing most of the 700+ bases would be a step from empire to republic. Security is a political and social challenge, not simple a military project. Development should be a right, not only a hope or a promise (see Brigitte Hamm, "The Right to Development" at www.freembtranslations.net). The elite live in a frozen alternatives where there are no alternatives. The future must be anticipated and protected in the present, not extrapolated from the present - if the future is to be open and dynamic, not closed and static.
