"They would change the whole calculus of the geostrategic global campaign plans of protecting the homeland. If they build any capacity on the west coast, geostrategically [it] will put them at an advantage," AFRICOM Commander Gen. Michael Langley warned during a Senate Committee on Armed Services hearing. "Right now we have a decisive advantage … we can't let them have a base on the west coast because it will change the dynamics."
