Australia: Defense spending to increase
#1
https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/lea...d1fdca442a?

Quote:Prime Minister Scott Morrison will warn Australians to prepare for a more “dangerous and disorderly” post-COVID world as he announces a $270 billion cash splash today on long-range maritime missiles and land strike capabilities as tensions with China intensify.

The Prime Minister will issue a blunt warning that tensions are rising across the region, citing recent border clashes between India and China and tensions in the South China Sea.

Article details the proposed funding.  I would be interested in hearing Aussie views on this.

Cheers

Well, may I reserve my thoughts on the spending until I've had a sleep.  "Post COVID"  I am not so sure seeing that after lifting restrictions there has been a spike in cases.  Restrictions are being re applied in some of Victoria's parishes.

Anyways I'll get some Zeds and reply more with a better spectrum of mind later.  I have a bit to say about China's foray into the Southern Land.

Kind regards,

Bally :)

That's nice of your hubby to say and for you to post the comment but nowadays 50 percent is made up of personnel in our ADF that have no balls at all. 

Kind regards,

Considering the Emu Wars video you posted, and taking into account that the military killed about 250 emus, and when the veteran farmers were authorized to handle it themselves and proceeded to kill 300,000 emus, the only conclusion I can reach is that Aussies become exponentially more dangerous men AFTER they leave the service than while they are in!

If they have steel balls while in, there is no doubt that those develop into tungsten balls once they are out!

I do know that a guy I worked with, Sgt. Quick, who hailed from Albany in the southwest corner of Australia was a mean one - I think it was the calm. His calmness may have made him seem a lot meaner than he may have actually been...

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

-Aldous Huxley
