I watched the Netflix series Pine Gap

Interesting treatment of prospective conflict of interest between Australia and USA over an imminent potential military conflict between China and the USA which could impact Australian exports to China and block Australian imports from Asia.

Australian Pine Gap operatives eventually conspired with US Pine Gap operatives to cause a POTUS back-down over a military strike on Chinese facilities.

Most interesting aspects:
  1. Australia asserting authority over Pine Gap in its own interests;
  2. The extent of monitoring of private phone and email traffic, even those of other world leaders; and
  3. The extent of unauthorized snooping by Pine Gap operatives on the communications of private citizens and world leaders.
