Interesting, wonder how much the lease is, it's sound more like a defense trade deal than anything else

I think opening up bases in Australia would be the bigger things than necessarily the dollar value. Having good bases in a stable, friendly country in a strategic part of the world is a big carrot. That's part of the reason for the French anger as New Caledonia and Réunion are definitely in sailing distance of Australia and are constitutionally part of France
