Is a US military base abroad considered American soil?
No. The only places in other countries that are considered "American soil" are embassies and consulates. Military bases are generally on land leased by the host country.
Correct. Some people claim that it is American soil because children born there are American citizens. While this is true, this is not because the base is considered part of the US, rather, it's because the US's Immigration and Naturalization Act, long story short, says that children of American citizens are American citizens too. They will be issued a "certificate of birth abroad" by the US embassy/consulate near that particular base, which is the normal procedure in such a case.
I believe you have to be born in America to be a citizen, or apply for citizenship. The previous answer is incorrect. If you are born in another country but your parent is an American citizen they you too are an American citizen. They just have to fill out a CRBA form or Consular Report of Birth Abroad. If you are born on a US military base that is also considered US territory.
John McCain was born on a US military base to US parents. When babies are born on the US bases by American parents they are considered being born in the United States since the base (This includes American Embassies in other countries) is considered American soil and ownership. If a foreigner steps on the US base they are stepping onto American soil not the soil of the nation where the base or Embassy is located.

There is not 4 ways, but two. If you are born in the US you are a citizen and if you are from another country you can be naturalized a citizen. Children born to an American citizen are automatically citizens and children born in places like a military base are also citizens no matter where the base is located.
As of December 2014, there is no military presence in Cambodia except for a small contingent of US Marines at the American Embassy known as the Embassy Guards (and are attached to the State Department). It is important to note that there is no American military presence either planned or requested, according to the American ambassador in a 2014 interview.
If you mean born in America, the answer is yes. (On an interesting note, if John Mccain had been elected as our president, he would have been the first US president NOT born on American soil. John Mccain was actually born in Panama. However, he is considered to be born an American citizen because he was born on an American military base in Panama.)
a military arrest is when you are arrested on a military installation by military police or military orginizations that have the power to arrest. if your arrested off base by local police they will hold you there awaiting your pick up by military officials if it was related to a military crime or a crime commited on base.
American forces maintained a base on Iwo through the Korean War. The island was a U.S. territory under military control until it was returned to Japan in 1968. The last American presence, a Coast Guard unit, left the island in October 1993. Today the island is a Japanese Self Defense Force base. It is off limits to tourists, aside for the annual memorial services once a year. from http://www.pacificwrecks.com/provinces/japan_iwo_jima.html
