DEFENSE OF AUSTRALIA
There are several US installations in the NT, which are protected by 2600 Marines and land invasion vehicles, plant and equipment, including tanks. Why are these needed, if not to contain future public resistance to this occupation?
These and other bases add up to nine likely reprisal or preemptive nuclear strikes in Australia by China, precipitated by currently intensifying US belligerence in the region.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser warned us that our foolish alliance with America would drag us into WWIII, a risk not offset by any reliable protection.
"America cannot be trusted" Fraser said, noting that the US had twice sided with Indonesia against us. In 1975, Indonesia planned an invasion of Australia, with the active support of the United States. And in 1983, following the joint US/Indonesia/Australia mapping of the floors of the Arafura and Timor Seas, the resultant data was shared between the US and Indonesia. Australia was left out in the cold, even though we paid our share and Indonesia did not.
As Fraser clarified, there is no defense alliance. America is not required to defend us and most certainly will not.
What should we do about this?
My immediate thought is that all Australians should be acquainted with the truth of this US invasion, and about the phony ANZAS Treaty. But the issues do not end there. In 1987 a Federal study concluded that any rocket base in north Australia would place residents at risk.
More recently it has been revealed that all US rockets use solid fuel, which releases significant amounts of chlorine gas into the atmosphere. Quite apart from being lethally poisonous, and a danger to Aboriginal people living in the area, chlorine gas damages the ozone layer. I very much doubt that local indigenous people would appreciate a rise in cancers and blindness.
Should not Arnhem Land Aborigines be warned of the risks?
Unbelievably, the Australian mass media knows about these issues but will not inform the public; and this includes the ABC... the people's media (ha ha). The reason is corruption. The rocket base was approved of and supported by the NT Government's Chief Minister, Michael Gunner. Gunner's wife, who works for the ABC, wrote an article favourable to the rocket site proposal.
This obvious conflict of interest should have required her to redact herself from any professional connection to the site or associated issues. Her involvement explains why the clearly partisan ABC failed to pass on the truth to the public.
- Online reference to US weapon makers Ratheon and Lockheed Martin; in discussion with Australian Department of Defense, four years ago. Perusal of this site resulted in its removal from the web.
- NT Government Budget Estimates Hearing reference to the rocket base as "contributing to the American military presence".
- Media-recorded reference by US navy Chief of Operations Admiral Johnathon Greenert to an intended US Naval presence in the Top End; Melville Bay being the only feasible selection.
- US to lose Guam and Okinawa bases, creating a military inadequacy in the Pacific;
- US stated intention to establish a comprehensive military presence in the Top End;
- The actual presence of US Air Force, 2600 Marines, and a significant storage of land invasion equipment, including tanks. The installation of a rocket launch platform and naval base would complete the comprehensive presence formula.
- Melville Bay is only 40 Ks from the rocket base.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser repeatedly warned Australians that the US will not defend Australia; that there is no binding treaty with the US; that the US has twice previously betrayed Australia in favour of expansionist Indonesia; and that the continued alliance would result in us being sucked into WWIII.
Presuming that China will adopt a similar reprisal first-strike nuclear missile strategy to other nations, should the US provoke war with China, Australia can expect Chinese nuclear strikes in all major US installations: Pine Gap. Darwin Airport, Middle Point, Shoal Bay, and Tindal Air base. And if the US rocket pad and Melville Bay Naval base go ahead, both of these also will be hit. That is seven nuclear strikes in the NT, each averaging firestorm obliteration of 230 square kilometres; plus a similar extent of devastation when the Inpex gas tanks detonate.

All Australians must learn the truth about the risks of ozone layer damage from solid rocket fuel toxicity, and possible reprisal or preemptive nuclear strikes by China against US war weaponry.
