This photo reminds me of a documentary that I was watching about general Australian outrage and interest at the degree to which the American Military is using the country as a base and somewhere to further extend their power. I find it interesting as i can see the similarities between the way that Australian military 100 years ago occupied what was German New Guinea. It is interesting to see how the patterns of military occupation can be so multi faceted and extend across apparent levels of power
