There is a noose tightening around the Pacific...
I just wanted to put this up here as somebody that has first hand accounts about the build up of power from a personal view in WA state and how
it might tie in internationally. First of all IT IS A FACT that Australia and the US are training each other and we're building up here and there
through personal observation. First of all relations are strong and friendly as my current girlfriend and I have both dated Auzzies. Why this matters
is the fact that my girlfriend lives near Joint Ft.Lewis/McChord AFB, literally right by the runway. Before we were with each other her and her
girlfriends would go to the local bars, which were near the base and would be TEEMING with Australians. Mainly enlisted being trained how to use US
military Aircraft, weapons, equipment to bring back to Australia where the US' Officers of various branches along with PMC are setting up bases.
I believe her short stint with her Australian BF was because he was there to recieve training on how to work on AMERICAN fighter electronics. He
was only there for 2-3 months and of course by tradition for all enlisted soldiers in America, UK, Australia etc... wanted to marry her and bring her
back after a month. She said no because she knew she was too young. But you can see this everywhere. Almost all enlisted 18-19 year old American
soldiers I know through friends and family get married almost within a year of joining because of the benefits that come with it (additional pay, and
base housing instead of barracks, and extra pay). The military encourages this because they know that once this happens you will be stuck in the
service for decades.
But I'm getting off topic. We have American/Aussie marriages happening all over bringing their partner back to which ever country the soldier
came from, further strengthening the bonds between our countries.
Driving to and from her house we have been seeing increasing numbers of heavy payloads, most likely coming from Fairchilds or who knows where. Not
the normal training convoys you see along this route through I-90, But convoys with heavy payloads and extreme security. I've posted about it before.
Not to mention that McChord is only a TRANSPORT AFB full of C17 Globemasters (62nd Airlift and 446th), which have replaced the C-141's and C-5's we
used to have. We had an active fighter unit of F-16's that later got stood down to reserves, but now there is an active control fighter wing with
F-22's that are part of the Western Regional Defence HQ here.
This makes sense between the Auzzie/American connection because these Globemasters are the pefect planes stationed at the perfect base to send over
TONS of infastructure for our joint bases in the South Pacfic, while bringing back Australian troops in the process to train how to use whatever
they're flying over there.
Not to mention the numerous naval bases and other AFB's nearby. SWIM knows somebody that works on certain fleets of underwater capable ships that
come and go nearby at increasingly different, eradic, and top secret times as well but that's all I'll say about that.
At work I ran into a contractor that just got back from Afghanistan the other day. We have companies like Daisen(sp) wining contracts with
Blackwater over training Afghani police. He was telling me that these companies are hiring like mad even looking for people without military/police
experience, he was only a PO before he worked PMC. We have civilians taking over the rolls of our soldiers over there so the government can say that
we're pulling out our troops on a successful timetable. Meanwhile our soldiers are coming back and being trained for something else.
My last subject I want to bring up is that because Australians and Americans are so intertwined, through marriage, military, student exchange
programs (that's how I met my ex-GF). We are forming a STRONG bond and alliance with them for the future. Right now we have a crescent stretching
from Alaska to Australia through our bases both in our countries mainland and on our colinial islands. Sounds like a good defensive line right? We
also have forward warning posts through SK, and Japan, which we wouldn't mind to use as buffer countries if an attack DID happen.
So I just wanted to shed a little insight on you guys about what I've seen and heard which makes sense. If you were NK or China and saw an
encroaching line of defense with offensive posts in front of them. How would you feel about what might be going on?
