I saw our Defence Minister Stephen Smith's press conference on Sky News today. It seemed to be about nothing. He was talking about a review of our
Military's ability to "meet emerging strategic challenges". Seems they are getting the taxpayer ready to increase our military budget.
I think this has alot to do with the fact that Obama was here recently telling us how lucky we are that he will be sending US marines to our soil in
record numbers and we are strengthening our military ties. So we are obviously defending against the threat of China.
China is the reason we got through the 'global financial crisis' unscathed. China is the reason for our resources boom. China is Australia's future.
Why should we risk our prosperity and the lives of our people for a bankrupt and desperate failure of a nation like the United States?
We are only a target because of America. We should be strengthening our military ties with China. It makes sense. We are the two powers in this
region. Australia, China beats South Korea and Japan every time. Asia/Austalasia would be sewn up in the event of world war. Australia tips the scale
bigtime. So why are we going to waste a massive amount of taxpayer dollars helping the bankrupt United States?? Its insane.
Instead of Marines we should offer China some land in Darwin for a military base and make sure they know that we are their friend and
neighbour.Chinese immigrants are a large part of our population,the Chinese use our universities, they support our tourism industry,they invest here,
thet create jobs here through mining, drilling, tourism,,,,, What the heck does the United States do for us? They make us a target. Not much else. We
have no problem with them but they should keep their marines.
