@ Margaret Pistorius: “I’m sorry that the US families are segregated but they are most certainly well remunerated for their roles in killing members of other families the world around.”
Are you saying they are war criminals? If so protest as well against our Defense Force, close it down as our soldiers have certainly killed civilians in all the armed conflicts they were involved.
“Pine Gap is most certainly targetted for nuclear strike in the case of war. It’s a dangerous imposition on the striking landscape.”

PS: I am a pacifist believing that all protests and manifestations should be directed at closing armament factories.

@ Jack: Rooms on each side of a corridor is to give adequate ventilation to the building (no air con). Ventilation moves outdoor air into a building or a room, and distributes the air within the building or room.

During the Malaya and Vietnam wars “forward scouts worked at the front of the patrol searching for signs of enemy movement: a dislodged stone, a bent blade of grass, a broken twig or a smell in the air; secret tunnels, landmines, ‘punji’ pits, and other obstacles and traps.
