|some questions for this esteemed gathering:
Aust have a few essentially unmanned 'bare base' facilities in the very remote north. whilst not thinking of any particular adversary, what do you think the chances are of having those bases taken and used as a ready-supplied airbridge?
i can appreciate why we want them, its very remote etc, but that feature also works as a geographical/logistical barrier. doesnt an empty military grade airstrip go to solving that?
what do you think of a 'henderson field/guadalcanal' scenario eventuating?
