Default US marines to set up in Darwin, Australia

THE US will have a permanent new military presence in Australia by rotating marines through a base in Darwin,
US President Barack Obama is set to announce.

This is all about the rise of China, the modernisation of the People's Liberation Army and, particularly, it's about the increased vulnerability of US forces in Japan and Guam to the new generation of Chinese missiles,

"The new Chinese missiles could threaten them in a way they've never been able to before.

More military expansion from the Nobel Peace Prize winner! Wow, there must be a lot of people brainwashed by Churchill to think this is actually a good thing. How do we afford it? Steal. LMAO!

More like pissed off. They're growing their numbers and looking for other ideal nations to swoop in and overthrow. We, ironically, end up funding both sides and bombing the innocent(which in turn pisses off their family members who were a lot of non-political people off and enrages them to join our enemy.)

I was under the impression there were already US military bases here, guess that's not the case. Well this will certainly put us in China's bad books, FFS.

Of course, common sense escapes our intellectual think tanks in D.C. Do they not realize that by anticipating war and preparing for it, they are in fact pushing us closer to its inevitability?

Did he not today tell China to "grow up" or something of that effect?
