Australia has sound reasons to support the US against authoritarian China : Comments

By Chris Lewis, published 12/7/2019

US grievances are justified given Chinas intellectual property theft, industrial subsidies, forced technology transfer and digital rules with regard to e-commerce.

One sound reason is enough - self defence against an obvious aggressor. At the moment, China is the only threat to Australia. Without America we are toast. Someone needs to tell Morrison that.

We should be concerned about China, its massive military build up, its clear and present expansionist ambitions and the theft of other nations and individual's intellectual property. Almost as if this nation was a highway robbing brigand and a law unto itself!?

For years voices in the wilderness have been warning our "leaders" that we were far too dependant on China and now nearly as dependent as a baby at the Mother's nipple!

And only because a few quislings in our parliaments, put their own narrow selfish self-serving interests ahead of all else. Thus we have allowed, price gouging, tax avoiding, profit repatriating foreign interests almost unfettered access to our mineral wealth, our massively overvalued real estate market and arable land!

Because conventional wisdom believed, if these foreign interests had a big enough stake, we would b safe? Almost if someone actually believed that any mad dictator could be swayed by rational argument rather than the usual (twitter bubble) whim and caprice!

Thus, we now have the world's most expensive energy and a manufacturing sector decimated by our own internal policies and total lack of real and now urgent Tax, energy and water reform.

Yes, by all means, back the US, but with a big stick in our back pocket not the wet tram ticket self-reliant, self-defence we would currently back it with. Plus our two-week reserve of oil!

All we have is the confident smiles of, I believe, clinically incompetent ministers to hold the line and protect our bought and paid for in blood, freedom and self-determination.

Thousands of Diggers and our forbears would to a generic man, be turning in their graves of the mess this nation has been allowed to descend to, from a position of the third wealthiest on the planet and a creditor one at that.

Bring on climate change and the drop-dead tipping point inside this decade. That's all you numbskulls have earned, with your selfish self -centred individualist Anti-Christian aspirations Yes, back the US, that's where they're currently heading

Haven't you heard Alan.

The climate scammers have dropped the whole tipping point narrative quietly in the bin, it was proving counter productive.

Every time they introduced some new imagined tipping point, to try to make up for the fact that CO2 in any scientific analysis just can't increase the temperature more than 1 degree, someone would prove their new tipping point was utter bulldust.

They became worried that with too much of their narrative proved to be utter bulldust, even the slowest & most committed useful idiots would finally wake up.

Stop handing out "begger visas" which grant Chinese the rights to beg on our street corners..

Anything with China attached to it, comes with a high potential of criminal intent.

The danger of China is real, but there is no need to join the USA in economic sanctions: just recognise Taiwan's independence, then the rest will fall into place automatically!

Australia has a Chinese future and everybody should start getting used to the fact. Just visit Sydney if you don't believe it! Everywhere one looks it's a sea of Chinese! When we show overseas visitors around Sydney they always ask the same question: 'What are all these Chinese doing here? Where are all the white people?'
