US Military bases in Australia and their disrespect for our environment
Just look at what past/current Australian Prime Ministers and
our Government have allowed to happen to this beautiful country:
Since the inauguration of John Howard and all subsequent PM’s, these morons, have allowed the US, allies and our own military to test fire their latest uranium based weapons on Australian soil. Our government created live weapons firing ranges at various locations including one in a marine national park on the Barrier Reef!!!!! My bone of contention is the fact that the US Military have been kicked out of many countries as a direct result of contaminating foreign soils with depleted uranium (one of the main incredients in todays weaponry) and in doing so are now contaminating the citizens of Australia, animals, plants, soil and water.
The half life of depleted uranium is 4.5 billion years (almost the same age as planet earth) and cannot be cleaned up.
It directly attacks the very DNA of life itself and once detonated spreads millions of radioactive nano particles into the surrounding environment before drifting on the wind to the rest of Australia, adjacent countries and the world beyond.
Depleted Uranium is in direct violation of the Geneva Convention on at least four counts and consequently should never be allowed in this country or any other country!!
So where are these wonderful environmental hot spots?
Number one on the list for the US Marine Air-Ground Task Force based in Darwin (at the local Robertson Barracks) and for our own RAAF aircrews is Delamere Air Weapons Range which is one of three such ranges in the top end of Australia…….it was so intereting to note one reporters comment when he said “Luckily the Northern Territory provides ample space and facilities to conduct the live firing exercises that modern armies need.” “Delamere Air Weapons Range is the smaller of three live firing areas that the Australian – and many other – military forces have used in the Top End for some time.” and then this comment from the RAAF themselves: “Australia’s premier spot to drop bombs.”
“Delamere is undoubtedly the premier air weapons range in Australia; all Aussie aircrew as well as visiting ones acknowledge that. The fact that we can provide the facilities we do and have virtually unrestricted airspace provides terrific training value for them.”
“We’re totally surrounded by cattle properties and there’s no major air routes that come through here, so strike aircraft have a freedom to practice tactics that is not readily available elsewhere,” “They’ve got 200,000 hectares of ground space out here”
Note that last comment about being totally surround by beef country……”adds new meaning to having a steak on the barbie that may well glow in the dark.”
Then we have the Bradshaw Range which about the size of Belgium also up in the top end and listed as follows: Bradshaw Field Training Area which is on the National Heritage List…..oh really!!……… covers approximately 871,000 ha and is located near Timber Creek, 600km by road south-west of Darwin in the Northern Territory. The training area is bound to the north by the Fitzmaurice River and Wombungi Station, to the west by the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, by the Victoria River to the south, and to the east by pastoral properties.
Then we have Mount Bundey Training area up the top end, a 117300 ha. site,75km south-east of Humpty Doo, south of the Arnhem Highway, between the Mary River and Kakadu National Park. Previously a cattle station, the property was acquired as a training area in 1988.
United States and Singaporean forces both conduct joint tank exercises with Australian forces at the MBTA, including the use of an Urban Operations Training Facility constructed in 2005.
Who really cares who blasts away at our country or who contaminates our environment?
Australia now contains major US bases and facilities who’s only purpose is to act as forward operational bases to carry out acts of war/conflicts against countries within the SE Asia region, including China and has nothing to do with national defence…..that makes Australia a major target in any conflict against the US!!!
I guess the crocs and all the other species in the top end will be the first to know…..not to mention the Aboriginal populations…….I am sure we all know what the US did with its own indiginous population!!!
Then we have our favorite pristine Great Barrier Reef area and the attached Marine National Park attached to Townshend Island which is a major military training area and bombing range in the Rockhampton area:
The northern part of the zoning area forms part of the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area (SWBTA). The training area was acquired by the Commonwealth Government in 1965 for defence training purposes. The
area has considerable strategic importance to the Department of Defence being the only location on the east coast of Australia where large-scale joint and combined exercises can be conducted. The training area is managed by the Australian Army from a base in Rockhampton but is also used by the Australian Navy and Air Force as well as overseas forces.
A number of sites within the training area are used for landing by military amphibious vessels and landing craft. These include Freshwater Bay and South Arm which is in Port Clinton. Sea Hound Hard on the south arm of Port Clinton is one of only two locations which can accept heavy landing craft. The other is located on Townshend Island in Shoalwater Bay which is outside the zoning area……..note that Townshend Island does however form part of our Marine National Park.
Townshend Island and the adjacent inland Mount Hummock are both used as bombing ranges as well as the entire region being used as one of the most important War Games areas
One of the biggest major exercise carried out in the Shoalwater Bay region is exercise Talisman Sabre involving US nuclear-powered ships and submarines. The US fleet also carry nuclear weapons as well as depleted uranium munitions.
I am sure we all agree with self defence of our country but certainly not to be taken over by the US forces and other allied armies who only purpose is to continue creating a permanent war/conflict scenario not to mention the deplorable permanent contamination of our beautiful country.
So there you have it……..Australia has basically become part of NATO which is the military arm of the New World Order and its only a matter of time before our country becomes totally contaminated by these ongoing war games and that Australia becomes part of the United States permanent war against non existant terrorism.
Finally we must always remember our government telling us about the defecit and in imposing austerity measure on the poor and yet they have an open wallet for purchasing military hardware (including new obsolete fighters) and participating in these extremely expensive war games.
