Allies Not Required

Among the many lessons learned in Operation Iraqi Freedom is that you just never know who your friends are[n't]. Getting permission to use air bases in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other countries for staging operations proved disappointing at best. If the U.S. DoD has its way, that will never be an issue in the future. Plans are being drawn for mammoth floating steel islands that will host all branches of the military. The Joint Mobile Offshore Base (JMOB) will consist of self-propelled, self-supporting modules that will rendezvous anywhere in the world, in international waters. The 120 foot high, 1000 foot long modules will form an airport, house troops, dock ships, contain POW facilities, a hospital, recreation halls and most other "creature comforts" of a fixed land base.
