Has our air show become a security problem? : Comments

By Peter Wigg, published 19/4/2017

And for what reason have we become a country that flaunts military destructive might as a public entertainment, like Russia or North Korea?

AC,

"If they don't have any wars to occupy themselves with they should instead be putting their skills to use helping out with domestic projects instead"

They, or at least some of them, need battle/combat experience so that they are up to the minute in preparedness and can pass on their knowledge, otherwise, they end up fighting the current stoush using outdated tactics.

A lot of he says she says hot air? That may well have completely inadvertently made sense in a few sentences? Given the Author is clueless and dependant on the he says she says, military advice.

I don't think any right minded person would see an arms fair as a glorification of war, but rather as a showcase of available equipment?

That said, we need to become completely self reliant in what we build and use, given the next war will be fought remotely by machines, some of which will be completely autonomous and not able to judge soldier from civilian?

Moreover, we need more spending on R+D if we would stay ahead of this arms race and completely self reliant! Which needs to be our ultimate goal!

We can already build drones, smart bombs, ships and subs! As for planes? All we need for self defense are stealth equipped, VTL platforms that fire missiles at selected targets!

Given the targets of choice in any future war are most likely our own civilian populations?

We also need to build nuclear powered subs that are little more than underwater hangers for myriad mini subs which then swarm to deliver all manner of ordnance that knock out the hostile capacity in the first coordinated blow. Rockets, cruise missiles and torpedoes from all points of the compass in the first five minutes of any intended engagement.

Mother subs all but undetectable at the bottom of the ocean! And able to deliver maximum reprisal or a knockout blow! And essential for our survival, given no second chance would be available!

No right minded person wants war, given there are no winners just massives losses all round! That said, we need to be strong enough to ensure in this cockeyed would, we won't need to have one?

Save a nut job at the helm of a rogue nation and so blinded by his or her own magnificence, that they believe that they will win and not be harmed!

I have attended every one of the Avalon Air Shows. I have noticed absolutely no change in the tone or whatever he is rambling on about. Case closed lol!
