Fundamentally and absolutely the answer is yes. If there is no longer a
contract can you tell me how 'big power' gets control back? The US could
nationalise bits of the system remaining in the US, but how long would that
remain the case once the contract ended?

I am presuming the USG does actually intend a real transition, not a faux
one that leaves a behind the scenes lever in place. They've pitched a
genuine transition and I believe that is what they want.
