Open democratic national debate about US military bases and not secretive and conspiratorial manoeuvres

Armed Forces of the United States will not be establishing military bases in Australia to protect our interests! If conflict arises between the East and the West, Australia should be a neutral player that will help resolve or avert such a conflict and not to be a part of it.

Nana Akyea Mensah of Ghana argued that Africa should not align itself with NATO, AFRICOM, SCO (Shanghai Corporation Organization), the West nor the East:

In a fundamental matter such as this, that has serious implications on our status as an independent nation, that could even mean life or death to Ghanaians, as we have seen in the bombs that continue to fall on marriage ceremonies in Afghanistan, the minimum expectation ought to be an open democratic national debate and not secretive and conspiratorial manoeuvres”.

Australians should also be saying:

In a fundamental matter such as this, that has serious implications on our status as an independent nation, that could even mean life or death to Australians, the minimum expectation ought to be an open democratic national debate and not secretive and conspiratorial manoeuvres”.
