Good more fire power for the 5th Fleet, Indian Ocean and South China Sea.

Even better, those long-range bombers can reach Iran.

The mullahs have just violated the UN Sec. Council Resolution by "test" firing a ballistic missile. The mullahs are ready to make a massive purchase of tanks from Russia. The mullahs are threatening to scrap obama's "nuclear deal."

Hear ye, the Iranians cannot be trusted.

" The mullahs have just violated the UN Sec. Council Resolution by "test" firing a ballistic missile. "

Jee, what a complete surprise. Only complete fools believed the empty promises by the mullahs anyway. Obama gave the mullahs all they wanted, and they gave nothing in return.

And these war toys in Australia do not change that one bit. It is empty posturing.

The U.S. is concerened about China's military expansion, so their reaction is to expand their military even futher than it all ready is? No other country on the planet has more foreign bases and military hardware than the U.S. If there is any concern, it should be directed towards the global military threat of the U.S.!

Why not? Australia has no well-developed national Air Forces, so let it be a runway for US bombers..

Yup . . . . and the mullahs were even sick enough to write, "Isreal should be wiped off the earth" (in Hebrew) on the missile which was fired.

You don't unfreeze their assets, you don't lift sanctions, you don't shake their hand and you certainly should NOT make nuclear deals with them knowing they won't honor such.

And now they cannot immediately reimpose the sanctions because China and Russia must also agree.

Thanks obama.

And it is about time we should ante up for the region. They must do much more, now!

How much firepower does the United States require? Clearly it is a direct threat against China. It might come to the point the Chinese need to strike before before it is too late. The US is setting the stage for a preemptive strike against China and Russia. The Americans have gone mad. If they want to see the threat to world peace, they need to look in a mirror.

"...negotiations were under way to have American B-1 bombers and aerial tankers temporarily stationed in northern Australia."

"Temporarily." Ha ha.

Anyway, good.
