Hello all you wonderful intelligent ATS users, i am writing ANOTHER topic on the presence of the US Millitia in Australia!
Not to long ago i posted a topic on Pinegap in Australia and how the US GOV Millitia have control over Pinegap and how the Australian people know
nothing not even our polliticians know enough about its existance. aout a year or so ago the Australian government announced that the US Millitary was
going to be based in darwin for training, some time on from the first arrivals now their families are being established over here, now im no silly
person but this to me sounds like migration or an invasion, the US Millitia has a base in the NT, Victoria, WA and i think possably Queensland, so
they have almost occupied every point of was accessable states at every side of Australia, plus there is pingap which is a huge millitary advantage
for surveilance and millitary dominance plus the operations in the south pole. any thoughts people?
The only reason why the USA has its presence here in Australia is for its own interests only. They do it to project their power to expand their
presence in the Pacific (this they have confirmed themselves). Their presence here also ensures that no on else comes knocking (e.g. China), which is
beneficial to us.
As for US bases in Australia, there are no huge military ones (besides the communications Centre at Exmouth, but i will get onto that later). The
closest you will find would be the recent deployment of US Marines in Darwin, which by the way, is at an Australian base. Pine Gap is a joint base,
but it is true that it was built by the USA and is basically considered their base of operations. American spies who work there also end up moving
their families out to Alice Springs. Apparently, Alice Springs is the most American influences city in Australia...for explainable reasons.
If you want to find a solely US operated base, look no further than the one at Exmouth.
Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt is located on the northwest coast of Australia, 6 kilometres (4 mi) north of the town of Exmouth,
Western Australia. The town of Exmouth was built at the same time as the communications station to provide support to the base and to house dependent
families of U.S. Navy personnel.
The station provides very low frequency (VLF) radio transmission to United States Navy and Royal Australian Navy ships and submarines in the western
Pacific Ocean and eastern Indian Ocean. With a transmission power of 1 megawatt, it is the most powerful transmission station in the Southern
Sir Garfield Barwick, Australian Minister for External Affairs, negotiated the lease on the US Base at North West Cape in 1963 with U.S. ambassador
William Battle. The lease did not allow Australia any degree of control over the station or its use.
The base has now, in recent times been expanded to take upon the role of a joint base:
On 15 July 2008, Australia and the US signed a bilateral treaty governing the future joint use of the facility for the next 25 years.
The USA is also wanting to establish drone bases at the Cocoas Islands. Another proposed plan was to permanently station US ships in Perth, Darwin,
Sydney and Brisbane if i recall correctly.
