    Quite smart really... having people there would give warning of the attack but at the cost of those people...

    This way they get a warning, but do not lose anything of value... in fact the place could be set up with booby traps and also resources so a small group could sneak in there later in a conflict to attack from behind, or perform some other purpose behind enemy lines.

    Makes a lot of sense in terms of value for money... the reduced orders for F-35s of course will increase their costs for other customers... who might also be reconsidering their purchase numbers...

    They r not Japan to be able to afford them, but her former colony. Their submarine fleet is as high, if not higher, priority.
