What Australia does for America
Regarding the Feb. 2 front-page article “Trump badgers leader of Australia”:
Someone should remind President Trump that the United States has more to lose by breaking agreements with Australia than does Australia. It’s not just that Australia has supported the United States in every war since World War I, including Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, but Australia also serves as a home for U.S. military bases that provide essential intelligence for the United States. Many Australians believe we should shut down these bases. Mr. Trump’s actions have boosted support for that view.
