Making life easier - for an adversary

I seem to remember that a year or two ago that nice Mr. Farage and that leading foreign affairs specialist Boris Johnson warned us about how terrible the Turks were, about to overrun the UK, and how we should vote to Take Back Control. I would be most interested to hear their take on this development. Taking back control - who from?

More seriously, I know v little about warfare, but I gather that taking out key logistics elements such as refineries, bridges, etc. is a relatively easy way to incapacitate an adversary. Having all the engines serviced at a single hub, on the periphery of NATO territory, makes that even easier (for our adversary, not for us). No need for an aerial bombardment of the hub, just need to persuade one employee to bring a bomb, conventional or chemical, to work. Anyone qualified to comment on that?
