>"We've got to be worried about 2020 and the next 12 to 24 months or so.">Mr Jennings said there was "only one country with both the capacity and the desire to dominate the Indo-Pacific region in a way that works against Australia's interest".>"When they talk about the bad behaviour that's happening in the region, the annexation of territory, coercion, the influencing of domestic politics, the use of cyber attacks – it's really only one country which is doing that at industrial levels, and that's the People's Republic of China."
>he consumes NATO propaganda and spreads it around on the internet FOR FREE
>>126049046What aspect of this is propaganda?
>>126049014In my entire life I've never seen a term called 'American Aggression'. Hmm???
>>126049085Is your wife cute?
>>126049055believing that china will start attacking countries out of nowhere
>>126049085Do you live under a fucking rock?
>i swear guiz we're telling the truth this time, China want to attack us!!!thank god China has strong military and nukes, otherwise they would be turned into iraq 2.0, the entire world must submit to USA imperialism until they will be satisfied.
>>126049102You really think you understand China's intents better than military intelligence agencies of other countries in their region?
>>126049085That's because it's generally referred to as American imperialism. Also how old are you? Do you not remember all the controversy that the invasion of Iraq stirred up?
>>126049113He lives in an island. He is English.
>>126049170Hes Chinese. He cant even speak english properly.
>>126049014ah my taxes hard at work fulfilling USA foreign policy while creating further division with our greatest trading partner, is this what LNP mean when they say they are best economic managers?
>>126049160that they know they can't win an offensive physical war and would rather dominate economically? this has been true so far
>>126049160military "intelligence" agencies are paranoid schizos. if china decided to attack countries, they would do it economically. traditional wars in the current era are very cringe
>>126049215>Peter Jennings from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) said the world had changed dramatically since the last Defence White Paper was released, particularly in the era of COVID-19.>"What this policy document does is it starts to increase the hitting power of the Defence Force in the short term, rather than being focused on building submarines that will be ready in the late 2030s and into the 2040s," Mr Jennings told ABC RN.>"We've got to be worried about 2020 and the next 12 to 24 months or so."They very clearly see an imminent threat caused by the global recession and pandemic that has impacted every country. We have already see echoes of Chinese aggression with India. You are still living in 2019
>>126049200that's mean spirited
I thought Australia was practically a Chinese vassal state at this point. Are they getting some balls and standing up to their bully, now?
>>126049272I understand that east asians find it hard to learn other languages, but you live in the Anglo sphere. You have no excuse.
>>126049150>China has strong militarydelusional
>>126049160considering that they have found Saddam's WMD.oh wait!yes.Besides, who cares? Trying to outspend the Chinese on military especially when your economy strives on sucking their dick is a fool's errand.But the aussies aren't known for their intelligence.I mean I know the purpose of propaganda on Iraq coz it's weak and they need an excuse.But China? LAMO. There isn't a single thing they can do about it. Not a thing.Fucking shitters have already backtracked on Hong Kong. It's not even 1 day ROFL
>>126049215They don't need to do an offensive physical war to start bullying people coercively. Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun, you rarely need to shoot the gun but it being there does change things>dominate economicallyThen why are they continually growing their military in the first place? They're already beyond parity with almost everyone besides NATO.
Nobody has anything to worry about.India is going to turn China into glass
>muh chinese cyber attacksthere's more evidence that russia paid taliban to kill USA soldiers hahaha
>>126049102Worked fot Tibet, will workfor Taiwan
>>126049357>Then why are they continually growing their military in the first place? it's not their fault that 1.7% of their GDP can BFTO everyone else beside America who spend like 3.1%. Why would the US need to spend 3.1% of GDP on defense while China only does 1.7%? Hmm?Wanna compare % ? Pic related is the entire Royal Navy being built in a single year. Just surplus production bro. Don't sweat.If 1.7% of GDP on defense is unreasonable, how much do you suggest? 0%?
>>126049329>>126049417>>126049441What does this have to do with recent chinese aggression?
autralias entire economy is based around exporting resources to china. they wont do shit.
>>126049521there isn't any chinese aggression. The poos thought the Chinese are too busy and under reporting their deaths (case of eating your own shit) to reply to their shenanigans and got clapped. Just like in 1962 when they thought the Chinese were too busy fighting the Soviet so it tried to sneak a fast one.End of story.Notice not a soul dares to say anything about it. Not even a call of de-escalate. That's power.
>>126049437Let Me Tell You About Tibet. Let Me Start With China’s Geography. China Is Surrounded By Unfriendly Countries On All Sides Except The North. It’s Northern Allies, Mongolia And Russia. Lack The Infrastructure In The Region To Be Of Any Help. China Is On It’s Own And Lacks Any Geographic Protection. China’s Southern Border Was Arbitrarily Set By War. It Is Not A Secure Border. The Southeast Asian Countries Stand Strong Together. China’s Historical Western Borders Lack Any Kind Of Mountain Ranges To Secure It’s Population. It Is Basically Defenseless Past Tibet. Furthermore. The Rivers That Feed China, the Yangtze And Yellow Rivers, Source From Tibet. If You Were To Theoretically Eliminate The Population Of China, You Would Control Tibet And Cut These Rivers Off. China’s Coast Is Also Squeezed In By US Force Projection. For This Reason China Would Never Allow Tibet To Be Independent. The Himalayas Also Serve As A Natural Border With Rival India. Who Would Likely Dominate Tibet It China Did Not. To Chinese, Tibet Is An Issue Of National Security. And Is Not For Debate.
>>126049160yes to be frank. it's easy for intelligence agencies to err on the side of caution and assume every act is a hostile one when they are ideologically opposed.
>>126049046Actually theyre glow niggers and they get paid for it.But yeah in the current state of the "anglosphere" they wont even find enough manpower to give China a run for its money. lol @ pathetic a*glo kike imperialists.
>>126049085There is no such thing. America is a savior of freedom and democracy, their interests are the world's interest.
>>126049668someone has been watching too much cape shit here.
It's almost like all of china's neighbors are preparing for something that they know is coming
>>126049601can't tell if this is a really good aussie shitpost
>>126049668lol imagine having shit for brains to even believe such a thing.
>>126049696indeed. They are lubing up for the new hegemon.Japan no longer needs to buy American overpriced and useless weapons. Save a lot of money.
>>126049592The Chinese attacked us. The info is one Google search away. Do you pay your taxes in brain cells?
chinese hegemony couldn't possibly be worse than amerikkkan
Let's be honest, china is going to get glassed if they start shit lol
>>126049922your own prime minister said the Chinese has never come into Indian territory. How did they attack you in that case?
>>126049922meh, i disagree. i think both sides knew what they were getting into when the region is clearly disputed. the sources that say they were attacked are Indian sources. i can't believe indian or chinese sources.
>>126049971I am talking about 1962 ,Zhang. Hold your eyes open.
>>126049922No rasheed, youll def know for real if China attacks you, look for massive amounts of poo flying over your house.
>>126050004>1962according to your Indian edit wiki maybe. Not in reality.
>>126049922>The Chinese attacked usi understand why you believe this as all of your new source would be pro-indian propaganda.But read non-bias source and it is very clear that india is who attacked first.Chinese soldiers only defended themselves.India did this likely as pretense to make further stronger government control over internet communications, hence why they ban multiple apps and technology.To tighten their grip on information.
>>126050051that's bullshit, it is impossible to determine who 'attacked first'.
>>126050051Also this is not to say only india is complicit.Australia also is involved in this malicious attack against China's reputation.With lies about cyber attack.I am ashamed to be an australian in 2020.
>>126050048The wiki marks neutral sources and Indian sources separately. The Indian sources are biased, I agree. But neutral sources aren't .>>126050051Aight Mitchell, you can stop baiting. Not even asians are this bad at English.

>>126049014China already owns a lot of land in my country. Would hooking up with a peruvian born chinese girl be bad for my country?
>>126049014Our military is a total meme anyway. Just a few years ago we spent $50b on a fleet of already obsolete submarines that won't enter service until 2035
war is good for profits
Indian and Chinese need to stop fighting and focus on real threatAmerica
Dont fall for ZOG war drum beating shills, goyim, the Chinks are going to depower them and free you of their international tyranny.
>>126050301no it is not, it's profitable for some companies but it is shit for everything else.
>>126049668holy based. america has done nothing wrong and the world would be looking at a much worse reality if it werent for america

>>126049160remember that time when military intelligence went into iraq because of wmds?why are amerifats so fucking pozzed? iraq happened less than 15 years ago and they still believe in cia coolaid

>>126050790People put way to much importance on want.

>>126051361A*ngloids cannot stand to lose the game, theyre will to thow the entire world into WW4 just to take out their competitors.They will not stop till e*glish is commonly spoken in mainland China.
America good china bad XDDD
i hope he shows no mercy to anglos
>>126049014That's total bullshit I can explain why if nobody else has yet. Before this our military budget was $30b a year. But last year there was a federal election and JUST before it happened the LNP (our conservative party) feared they were going to lose it so what they did was lock the budget with $90bn+ worth of military contracts for the next few years effectively booby trapping the budget for Labor (center left party) for when they got into office. Mind you this comes AFTER the LNP have been gutting funding for public healthcare and education.Labor wants to increase funding for education and healthcare again but because of the booby trap the LNP set they could effectively pin on Labor and make it out to be their fault or make them look like they're "weak against china". Election day comes around and everyone votes for the LNP again so now this bomb has effectively blown up in their own faces and now we're stuck with unavoidable contracts that have to be filled and a pants on head retarded population.
>>126051402At least there it´s actual international relations not EU law
>>126051457Kys leftypol tranny
>>126051365Lmao. You are just a student. Your statements are no better than the personal opinion of someone who reads regularly the news.
>>126049281Australia has been a US vessal state since the 70's, if you think China has couple of sleeper pollies in Australia then America basically has an entire political party. Also some fun trivia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq8H0GHU8AQ
>>126049822lmao it's just they realized the conventional defense-only policy doesn't work anymore, and suspending the land aesis is a milestone in that they tweaked the doctrine and opted for offensive capabilities over another layer of missile defense. in fact this decade is to see deployment of an array of hypersonic stand-off weapons, from glide vehicles, to scramjet cruising missiles, that can directly take out north korea's launching platforms as well as command and control centers, making gooks think twice before they do prank missile launches. and of course it translates to a pressure on china as well.
>>126052695t Takeshi stillbassblasred about wocket pwankIll call Mr Kim to prank you again this weekend, its gonna be funny.
>>126053017on the contrary people like me are actually thankful to them, as their shenanigans give us the best excuses to loosen or lift the retarded restrictions, though long overdue. and i for one think it's high time to make it clear who the boss is again.
>>126049014>global economic regression>time to spend 1/6 of the budget on militaryWonder what real Aussies think.
Honestly we're not doing enough. I'm hoping over the next few months we become a lot more hawkish and stop letting China get away with things. We need an international anti China coalition.
>>126053699did anyone you know get the coronavirus?
>>126053767How is that even relevant?
>>126051487Australian politics sounds like an exciting and contentious affair
Meanwhile, NZ, an actual five eyes country has a CCP spy elected to parliament.

>>126053923Any true blue white Aussie man stands with the CCP mate.
Meh, I'll believe it when I see it. Both major political parties here have spent so much time kissing China's arse over the last 10+ years that this is more likely just a reason to spend money on weapons more than anything else. If anything those boot lickers in Canberra would probably use the weapons to help China attack somebody else at this point.
>>126054238t. knows so little about the geopolitics of his own country the brainmass may as well be in the negativesBoth parties have been kissing Chinas arse for the last 10 years because they are our biggest trading partner and China has been largely doing just short of fuck all apart from trading. But the US is our guarantor for security, countries put security and sovereignty over economic comfort. Now that China is slowly encroaching its military onto other countries, everyone is taking the "security and sovereignty" first and foremost again. Even the Philippines, who with a hardline Pro-Chinese supporter in charge, has reversed course and decided to renew US-Flip security deals and ties after Chinese warships got uncomfortably close into Philippine waters without permission
>>126049014Eh I'll believe it when the Badger bombers zooming around have Dongfeng missile underneath it, till then its just poking around.Until then their shipyards will be necessary to replace the navy's rustbuckets.https://defbrief.com/2020/01/02/malaysia-takes-delivery-of-first-china-built-littoral-mission-ship-keris/
>>126054535Not him but the purchase reeks of hamhanded public relations for the LNP stronghold.I agree with your assessment of the yanks being our guarantor of security but I have absolutely no faith in them maintaining their tenuous grip on the american century with the absolute state of their people and diplomats.
>>126054535>countries put security and sovereignty over economic comfortThe Australian government has been doing the opposite of that for years now.>everyone is taking the "security and sovereignty" first and foremost againAgain, I'll believe it when I see it. I'm not saying it definitely isn't going to happen, I'm just saying I have my doubts and until it does I don't really believe it.>>126054928>Not him but the purchase reeks of hamhanded public relations for the LNP stronghold.This. The LNP has a history of pretending to be all about Australian sovereignty, meanwhile bending the knee to suck tiny little yellow dick.
>>126050283I actually do contracting for the ASC so I know a bit about it. The Submarines are going to be fitted with modern technology for the time, the hardest part is getting together the Submarines themselves. The submarines would not be obsolete when they enter service.
>>126053965It's a proxy I guess.
>>126054928>Not him but the purchase reeks of hamhanded public relations for the LNP stronghold.Probably is. But that doesn't mean take away from the fact that in the immediate future, a larger, more capable military may be necessary. Asia in the 21st century to what Europe was in the 20th century, where most tensions and flashpoints are going to occur. This isnt an evaluation Australia alone has come to, most of Chinas close neighbours are following suit to expand and modernize their military in response. How many of theirs do you think are purely calculated PR stunts for the ruling party?>I agree with your assessment You say assessment like it isn't an indisputable fact. But perhaps not, I once read a book excerpt that read that the US is now stretched between what is two separate continents of interest, Asia and Europe, and concentrating more on one of the other does not necessarily mean abandonment, but more about balancing a foot in either continent, this is where the idea of min military spending for other NATO contributors, which was a thing even before Trump came from. >>126055028>The Australian government has been doing the opposite of that for years now.Of course, because there is little need to prioritize costly security when there is no threat, what do you think the Australian military needed LHD's and F-35s for before 2010? stopping Indonesian pirates on their wooden rafts? lmao>Again, I'll believe it when I see it. Vietnam, fucking Vietnam, is taking the strongest anti-Chinese stance in the whole of SEA despite China being their number one trading partner. Philippines has gone from cursing the US and vowing to abandon them in favor of China, to now renewing US-Flip security pacts and agreements, Chinas is top 3 major traders with the Philippines. Indonesia is building military bases on the rim of the nine dash line in response, China is also top 3 for them. It's not just us.
>>126056376Well then I'm genuinely glad. I don't know how much it will accomplish, but it'd be nice to see so many countries telling China to get fucked all at once.
China won't attack anyone, what would they gain from it, considering USA is still way stronger in every single aspect?
> westies thinking other nations are even 10% as bloodthirsty as they> westies trusting 'military intelligence' because 'why would they lie'why are they like this
>>126056624Brainwashing from early age
>>126056506Those big coast guard boats harassing fishing boats and exploration ships are still a nuisance.
>>126056462It's definitely a weird world. When the nine dash line fiasco started, I thought for obvious reasons, Vietnam was going to support China but instead they've opposed them at every corner, and even stranger, Duterte who has a strong Anti-US, Pro-China stance has 180'd and started supporting Vietnam and seeking US ties again.The ASEAN summit happened recently with Vietnam hosting it, and it was basically just Vietnam telling China to get fucked
>>126049014Everything is senseless without nukes. No nukes no defense. 10 nukes can keep anyone away, even if the rest of your army is equipped with wooden sticks.
China will likely start doing more military action now that their country is in shambles due to corona.
>>126056624*occupies his neighbor*
>>126056730They have claims over what they call the 9 dash line but they will not do anything about it 9militaristically speaking. And what does Australia has to do with that?
>>126057105Your country is in shambles fat, not theirs.
China is a totalitarian hellhole which WILL at some point in time either instigate or be drawn into a world wide conflict. Good thing I don't give a shit because it's on the other side of the planet.
Please buy our Lynx IFV
