Although the debate that is now just emerging on this discussion board is interesting, it is, nonetheless, moot.
Congress has agreed with the Army's arguments, such as those put forth by "A 19 Delta Scout", and thus the Expansion is a done deal. The only thing left up in the air is what exactly will be done to mitigate the concerns of enviromentalists, and maybe of recreationists, too.
Although visitor "johnc" voices solid concerns that are now being raised by many people, unfortunately this emerging debate is 10 years too late. There is no longer the issue of "if", only of "when" and "how".
