...i am waiting for the war with "chyna", it seems Mr. Morrison is preparing for a fight; they say if the Chinese jump up and down, all at the same time, it causes tsunamis.

...twerking, is that a National dance? And why were they there, seriously, who booked them, for an event where dignitaries are seated; tight budgets? Poor girls (read: young ladies), a great performance though, pretty tight.

No we are not preparing fir a war or for a fight with Chy-na.

We are however an important ally strategically to our friends and partners in the region - Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, and even Vietnam as of recent. Plus many more.

All of which have an axe to grind with Chy-na over the South East China Sea delineation of territorial seas and EEZ under international law UNCLOS.

Chy-na, like Turkey, choose to make up their own rules to steal what does not belong to them. They are in fact taking it to a whole new level. The Turks are nowhere near as organised or progressed in their thievery. Turkey actually looks like a much more reasonable proposition as they actually know they are in the wrong.

As such, we prepare our military to protect our interests globally and defend Australia.

This new ship is an Air Warfare Destroyer of some 6500 tonnes. Worth about 4 billion. Capable of launching Tomahawk Cruise Missiles, Harpoon and a variety of long, medium and short range air defence missiles. Ideal escort ship for our Capital Ships Canberra abs Adelaide.

It’s a piece of art. We are very proud of our newest ship. :D

Built in Adelaide with the latest in stealth shipping tech as well from the Americans, and French. Initially launched next to the DCMS submarine facility where the Shortfin submarines will be built under licence from France and America’s Lockheed. Yes Lockheed. The aircraft manufacturer.

The Shortfin is a French design but unlike the French boats, the Australian ones will have American Fire Acquisition and Targeting systems, and American weapons like the sub launched Tomahawk Cruise Missile with a range of 3500 plus kms.

The French alternatives are equally state of the art but the Australian Naval Program calls for American weapons and fire control because that’s what our other ships have, including AEGIS.

And that’s why you have Frances DCMS and Lockheed teaming up.

So yeh, our new ships and subs pack quite the punch but the bursary about our subs is they could be anywhere around the globe, with extreme stealth, ready to launch their Tomahawk missiles.

In all honesty. It was a dance group and the girls were over the moon to be performing and dancing.

The dignitaries, officers, politicians and the Governor General were not there when they were performing. So the were performing to the general public who had already gathered there on the docks.

But the media made it look like the military top brass and Governor General were there and nodding in appreciation in a news grab that was deceptively edited to make them look like out of touch dirty sleazes.

No way in the world would officers of the Royal Australian Navy look upon young girls shaking their booty’s. There is a certain standard of behaviour that is expected when in uniform, any uniform, and our top brass would be more familiar about those standards.

There is a media uproar about sexual harassment in our military. Now I have no doubt that may be the case. Our soldiers do let of some steam after a 6 month deployment in Afghanistan.

Also war crimes. Such as point blank execution of captured prisoners by our SAS. So our military is under heavy scrutiny.

But a lot is made up as well. Media trying to form a narrative that is unfair and false. In the end they got exposed as the Governor General and the military officers that were shown in the news grab or propaganda piece all came out and said they were not even there and that the news story was false reporting and our PM called the ABC out on it and called on them to apologise.

As to the defence expenditure. We are building a very viable industry of submarine and ship building employing thousands of people and investing money into highly qualified people for a variety of reasons. One is national security yes. And be able to build and support our own Armed Forces should we be cut off one day. It’s a matter of high strategic importance. Rather than buy off the shelf, we design and build our own. Second, it helps the economy by circulating money round an industry, its supply chain, salaries and so on which also helps the greater community as this money generates economic development and more jobs. A lot of the stuff is foreign technology with a sprinkle of Australian tech in the mix which also encourages innovation and better tech down the track.

The facilities we have here are world class now. I’ve seen them. Know someone who works there as well. The next project is to build the patrol boats and submarines. That’s going to be extraordinary for us as these subs will be cutting edge. No expense spared. And it’s about investing money in the people of Australia and nurturing our brightest people to do remarkable things and give our young ones something to aim towards.

So is it a waste? Nope! It’s called nation building.

And should we face a war in the future, we have the infrastructure and industry to be more reliant on ourselves.
