Comment on US military base in Darwin: what risk to NT? by Nick Deane.

One question that might be worth considering is this:-
“Do Australians feel more, or less, safe now – than they did seven years ago, when the US marines first arrived?”
For my part, I sense that we have moved closer to war and I notice that China is being identified as the enemy with increasing frequency.
So I feel less safe than I did in 2012. We have got US aggression (exemplified by the presence of US Marines) to thank for the precarious situation we are now in. It is time to re-assess the value of the US Alliance.

Pine Gap: wake-up call for Alice Springs
An excellent article – not pulling any punches. I share Kieran Finnane’s concerns about having a base like Pine Gap on Australian soil, in particular with regard to its impact on Australia’s independence. Clearly, the exhibition is raising awareness about Pine Gap and what it does and stands for. Congratulations for publishing the item.
