I had this idea about Vis--NATO base long ago, in the early nineties. But I changed my mind about it. It would pollute the Adriatic and bring along more damage to Croatia than benefit; It would pollute the air, the water, and the soul of the people and the country. Imagine the scare of the monster aircraft in the air over the Adriatic, the sound/noise of it. It would scare and frighten tourists. Being a country of 4 1/5 ml people, Croatia would be better off without NATO on Vis. Questionable is also the strategic location of Vis positioned in (almost) closed waters. And it's against the "market" principle of offer and demand; if an offer runs ahead of demand, it loses its value. (ra)
