Within these we can exercise our responsibility.

What the Bomb would do to you
The geopolitical situation has changed since the original “What happens to Alice” with the USA and China facing off in the west Pacific but the fundamentals are the same.
It is a US military base (even if a joint one), part of signals intelligence and command / control systems, part of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and would be involved in any conflict with China.
So the question of how its role makes it a potential target for nuclear or other types of weapons is a valid one for residents in Alice.
Just because nothings happened so far is not indication of the future. We should know our risk status.
