I don't get the whole fuss about the US testing weapons in Australia. They've been using new gear in Shoal Water Bay every year basically, and they let us test our new gear when we go and do training exercises in the states.

Hey, we let the Brits test nukes, so what the fuss about a couple of conventionals. I think it's just because some anti-defence left wing pinkos got a bit up tight about US presence in Australia. I hate to say it, but every few years we have as many as 20,000 US troops come and train on exercise with us.

Sorry to all the non-australian people on the forum, you probably wont have heard anything of this, but it's been brought up a fair bit over the last days in the Aussie media.
