  1. @RichardMedhurst Don't forget the New Zealand/US spy base in Waihopai which has been the primary source for collecting/sifting all communication types since 1989!

    Australia became a total US vassal state in 1975 after the successful coup on then PM Gough Whitlam by the UK/US, one of the reasons was Whitlam was threathening the existence of Pine Gap.

    Maintain the rage!!

  2. I never sit and thought about Australian government, but this makes a lot of sense! Wow!
    That's the kind of democracy that US wants to spread around the world! And when our oligarchy is "beacon of democracy" then you know what you're gonna get!!

  3. Thank you Richard, I am Australian and what you just said is right. I which more Australians would wake up. We have been dragged into the China conflict, which has had a gigantic affect on our trade. Our standard of living will be affected, but if we are dragged into a war with China, it will be the end of Australia. I am 78 now and most of those years I have wished Australia would break away from the US.

  4. When visiitng Alice Springs, I was told it had a very high number of citizens with a Ph.D. At the time, that didn't make sense to me. After all, Alice Springs is in the middle of nowhere. But now I suspect the proximity of Pine Gap explains it.

  5. Australia is a very unlucky colony because if a conflict starts over Taiwan, the US spystation will be wiped out. It will be one of the first targets followed by all the military bases and the ports of course. Australia will be completely destroyed. I don't think that the vast majority of the Australians are excited about becoming another victim of US imperialism. But what do I know! PS: Should Australia ever get these subs, Taiwan will be already be reunified with the Chinese Mainland. So who profits of this BS?! Only one country, the US.

  6. Goddamnit why can't our government just do the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing? Just when I was getting an inkling of respect for Joe Biden, this is immediately making me begin to hate him. We should be strengthening our allies not using them.

  7. Everything you said Richard is true. The dismissal of the Whitlam government was so brazen and outrageous it beggars belief to this day. The spine of Australia turns to jelly when it comes to the US. To think that all those brave immigrants who came to this country post WW2 to get away from imperialists and colonisation have found themselves right back where they started from. What does freedom really look like today?? Having something called Pine Gap in the middle of your country dominated by another country and not allowed to know anything about it?? #freejulianassange
