^The ISS as built was never intended to help "setup bases on the moon or mars".
Your first link is by a private organization with no say in the ISS.
Your second link refers to simulating the effects on the astronauts of a journey to mars - physiologically.
Your third link is from 1988 of a concept that was never built
My books date back to the Apollo program and none of them depict the ISS as built to be a crucial component for a Mars or moon mission.
