  •   counting Marines in embassies skews results (0+ / 0-)

    All of our embassies are guarded by US Marines. Of the approximately 194 countires in the world, there are five countries with which the US does not have formal diplomatic relations: Bhutan, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Taiwan.

    There are approximately 150 US military bases on foreign soil.
