What is the worlds largest military air base?
I believe, due to my own similar experience, that the most common probelem would have been finding suitable housing for the family. Any time that you have a large buildup of soldiers in a area, land lords would immediately start raising rent. Patriotism is one thing to Americans, but American landlo…rds are after the buck. Only higher ranking officers could afford decent housing and lower ranking soldiers and their families would have to pay a months pay for a dump. And the landlords know every ranks payscale. (MORE)

Technically speaking the US had no bases in Britain in WW2 (afiction that continues today), but occu…pied RAF bases rented underreverse Lend-Lease. In practice many of the bases were built toUSAAF specification and were exclusively occupied by USAAFpersonnel. . There were Maritime, transport, training and fighter squadronsstationed in the UK on over 70 bases spread out over the entirecountry, but the ones we remember best are the B17 bomber stationssuch as those featured in the film 'Memphis Belle' (the 1944documentary not the ghastly Hollywood movie), with names likeSteeple Mordern and Chipping Ongar.

Fort Bragg is the only post inthe United States which can support two full armoureddivisions. Edwards Air Force Base I think it's more likely to be a base like Saudi Arabian NationalGuard's Kashmalan base in Riyadh... It's 28 miles in length andhouses everything on an extreme level. The SANG are the Kings own private army, not part of the main SaudiArmy. While they don't have tanks etc. they have literallythousands of APC's, massive advanced technical training facilitiesand it's effectively a city unto itself.

Fort Bragg, NC. Whoever said ft bragg is sadly mistaking and not checking their facts.

But with the huge expansion of ft bliss that is taking place currently, th…ey are estimating soldiers, family members and contractors will increase by 65,000 by 2014.

Military bases provide a variety of functions. Many bases house soldiers and provide facilities for the troops to get their education, shop, eat, and so on. All bases, however, have missions. A mission is basically a job or a goal they strive to achieve. Some bases may revolve around air craft maint…enance and repair; others may be training bases preparing troops for combat. There are hundreds of bases globally, each with their own particular missions. Most bases have a website with information about what their primary missions are. (MORE)

Did you mean : Who has the largest fan base in the world between Manchester united and Celtic? World Wide it would be Celtic. I would have to agree, mainly because of the world wide support Celtic has from the Irish who have emigrated and second, third and fourth generation who would align… themselves with anything Irish. With Man Utd you have a much more shallow bunch, Celtic is more than just a club, Celtic fans support Celtic due to heritage and a way of supporting life. This is complete faulse that Manchester united is supported by 5% of the worlds population (320 million), where as Celtic is supported by 0.0015 (9,000,000) of the worlds population. FACT Celtic have more real fans I am not talking about all the many women, children and cling-ons who align themselves with United I would consider them as a event fan, as I said Celtic are more than just a club.

Australia now world's biggest polluter. This article, "The climate Project" was copied on Dec 2009 from an article by the Australian Conservation Foundation. Australians carry the burden of being the worlds largest polluter Australia now world's biggest polluter Date: 16-Sep-2009 Australia has …been put on the map for all the wrong reasons. It's the one world first that Australia did not want to win - the title of world's biggest polluter. A report by British risk analysis company Maplecroft has found that Australia has overtaken the United States as the world's largest polluter and is now leading the world in per capita emissions of CO 2 , topping a list of 185 countries. The report said Australia's reliance on coal creates an average output of 20.58 tonnes of CO 2 per person, ahead of the United States which comes in at 19.78 tonnes. China is still ranked as the world's worst overall polluter but even then, it has a per capita average of about 4.5 tonnes. In other words, Australia produces nearly five times as much CO 2 per head of population as the world's largest nation. The report shows how much work Australia has to do to achieve a global emissions reduction target, particularly as it has the highest per capita rate in the world. Tony Mohr, climate change program manager at the Australian Conservation Foundation, said it would give Australia a real credibility problem at the summit when dealing with developing countries and put more pressure on Australia to fund their efforts tackling climate change. "For so long we have had so little in terms of climate change policy and our emission per capita is just so bad, Mohr said. "Countries like India and China will be able to say you have such a high greenhouse gas intensity, your targets need to be stronger and your assistance to developing countries needs to larger." The study coincides with the alarming findings in the first ever carbon competitiveness reports showing that Australia ranked among the worst in the world for being carbon competitive. The Climate Institute report, which analysed productivity versus emissions, ranked Australia 15th in an analysis of its capacity to generate business in a low carbon economy. This was the lowest position of any industrialised country. Greens deputy leader Christine Milne attacked the Rudd Government's support for high polluting industries, including its automotive industry package. "The Rudd Government's obsession with sandbagging jobs in the biggest polluting sectors of our economy is short-sighted in the extreme and bound to end in tears, she said. "Billions of dollars are being handed out to polluters under the pretense of protecting jobs, while sunrise industries which promise to create far more, higher quality jobs are left begging." The poor results signal the difficulties Australia might face at the Copenhagen summit in December.. (MORE)

Almost all bases have a training section of some kind.
