    I only caught part of it on the news. Can someone elaborate, and, more to the point, what do people think the ramifications could be?

    I would think its to counter act the proposed Chinese navy base in Sri Lanka, also Australia is getting to close to China in every way and the US can see us as in the near future as not a reliable ally..............http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/01/31/srilanka-china-idINDEE80U0CC20120131

    I heard the story on the ABC
    It's a US think tank idea only so far (a think tank :lol: , those dip shits couldn't come up with a decent idea if they're life dependanted on it )
    The area couldn't handle a ship of that size & they would need to spend billions to make it work .
    No country should have a base in any other country , I would personally take it as a sign of war .

    Sounds like an invasion to me , its bad enough were sponsoring the afghan army which would be treason in my book.
    now we have to pander to the septic tanks ,who are more interested in indonesia's mineral wealth than anything to do with aust

    They're barefaced now that Oz is a satellite state of the US. I wouldn't be surprised if the reptiles have their underground wait it out city under Pine Gap.

    If Australia has a future it is in Asia and we should be working to shore up alliances there, not pandering to a dying imperialist empire.

    Not a problem but if you ever come over here and want to hit a few tin cans, let me know, I have you covered! ;)

    When I was deployed to the Middle East I was with a few Aussies and a few Brits, the drinking would get out of hand and the insults would fly. It was always an interesting time talking about prisoners and revolutions and what not. Someday I will venture down under and it would be really neat to see what all I have missed from a beautiful country that is rich in history and pride.

    Having a U.S. carrier group stationed in Aus directly harms our national security "."
