"The US military will build a base for the Dominican Navy on a small island here, consisting of barracks, a command center, and reconstructed pier. The project came at the behest of Dominican authorities witnessing an increase in drug trafficking on their coastline. It is one example of a regional approach the Pentagon is taking to catch drug shipments, the bulk of which are destined for the US. ... With its own resources stretched, the US is increasingly turning to allies like the Dominican Republic to combat trafficking." (03/12/12)
