Pentagon sees Honduras as a FOB
Published Mar 21, 2011 9:25 PM
“FOB” is military jargon for Forward Operating Base. It is a secure, forward military position that supports tactical operations and reduces the reaction time of the military forces that use it.
The Pentagon has them throughout Afghanistan and until recently had them all over Iraq. In the Pentagon’s scheme of things Honduras is a giant FOB right in the middle of Central America, with a Caribbean seacoast. This FOB carries a low profile, and most people in the U.S. do not know that it exists. For the people of Honduras it is a part of their lives 24/7.
The heart of the FOB is the José Enrique Soto Cano Air Base, located about 60 miles from the nation’s capital, Tegucigalpa. The U.S. military presence is officially known as Joint Task Force-Bravo and includes permanently assigned Army and Air Force units, including the 1st Battalion, the 228th Aviation Regiment and the 612th Air Base Squadron.
While technically considered a Honduran military base, the U.S. controls base security and all airfield functions at Soto Cano, such as air traffic control, weather forecasting and logistics.
HONDURAS: The People’s National Resistance Front has called a general strike for Wednesday against President Porfirio Lobo’s administration.
The left-wing alliance decided to take action after Mr Lobo issued a decree on Sunday threatening to fire teachers if they continue their strike to press their demand for six months of back pay.
The decree states that teachers who fail to show up in classrooms this week will be suspended without pay.
Teachers will be sacked if they don’t appear by April 4.
