I lived at Lajes for two years in the sixties. It was one heck of a nice place. Everything was 10 cents then; a gallon of gas, a loaf of bread, a pack of smokes.

I hate to see the Chi Comms take it over because it would give them some decided advantages in terms of defense and offence. Cut the distance their plan have to fly, allows them to carry more stuff and less fuel, etc., etc.

Having said that, the continued need for Lajes for the US, going into the 21t century is highly questionable at best.

It looks like our greatest rational would be to keep it out of China’s hands

Poor Portuguese, they’re such a sweet, lovely, staggeringly poor people. Hate to see what happens after the Chi Comms move in!
