By Binoy Kampmark, published 20/1/2023

The policymaking apparatus behind the AUKUS security pact was shoddy from the start.

Don't vote? More to the point, don't read this sort of garbage: anti-AUKUS, anti-American, and Anti-Australian.

What happens with submarines has sweet Fanny Adams to do with this bloke who, as a mere academic, knows absolutely nothing about them. We will get them. America has assured us of a stopgap between the Collins and the nuclear-powered ones.

In the meantime, we need to remember that the people submitting articles to this section are only giving opinions. They actually know bugger-all about anything.

Is it possible that the real intention was to park American nuclear subs in Australia? Since it is going to be near impossible for us to get our own in the next 10 or 20 years?

Pivot to Oz! To show China that America is not vacating Asia!

Wittman makes perfect sense, and his advice is one we should grasp with both hands.

Moreover, we need to also become a nuclear-powered economy. As this option is the only one that'll support a robust manufacturing sector an allow us to become shipbuilders to the world. And able to build all our subs here.

Here I'm referring to MSR thorium and MSR nuclear waste burning technology. And energy prices that will enable us to compete with allcomers, including China.

We can't even produce steel able to handle the requirements of US nuclear sub operational conditions, let alone build the subs.

Ttbn.

Donít agree at all. I find this author to be on the ball.

Itís way way too late, and a total waste of precious resources equipping Australia with any submarines capable of useful resistance to the Chinese submarine inventory.

Suggest you read the above short link.

Taiwan is a similar sized country to Australia, and far more vulnerable. Why do you think Taiwan has long ago given up on competition with China, and attempting to match Chinese submarine capabilities.

I say donít vote for the idiot class who forever manage to take over the controls of our country, continuing to plunge it further into the unthinking stupid it advertises itself as.

When I see a few bombs land on US soil, from the plethora of global conflicts they gleefully kick off, I might have a change of heart.
But sadly, the current America is not the great nation we remember it as, from 1945.
I can only describe it as our greatest unreliable nightmare.
