Well, somebody must have a couple of your Prime Minister's laptops!!
WTF!!
Hey Mates, let's partner up with Team America!!
After Joe Biden pulled off the stunning and brave withdrawal from Afghanistan, who wouldn't want to team up with him and do little Saber Rattling with the biggest army in the hemisphere.

Britian's not even committed enough to add their own U.

I covered an Eco Challenge in Borneo many years ago as a journalist, with teams competing from around the world. Each team had four people, but it was so tough that a lot of competitors got injured. Team USA lost half their competitors as did Team UK. So they joined together to form "Team USUK".

Our prime minister is a fuckwit. But the threat of China is real. So frankly, I wouldn't trust the US to come to our aid in a conflict, but I sure like the idea of pissing off China!

I can guarantee that negotiations for this latest announcement began with Trump. These things take years to resolve before they are announced.

Seems Australia is going nuclear? Stealing some nuclear powered sub Tech. Serious weaponry.

I must have misunderstood.

Just nuclear power. But with the ability to be armed with nuclear weapons at any time (Thanks Team USUK!), it will keep the Chinese guessing.

Great song!

Personally, I don't have an issue with nuclear power. Australia has half the world's uranium deposits and we don't have a single nuclear power station.

As for nuclear weapons, well China is the one that repeatedly claims Australia will be the first target in any conflict between China and the US, so I say let's do an Israel and keep em guessing (even though we all know Israel has nuclear weapons, despite it staying silent).

If it's good enough for North Korea . . . Even though I don't actually believe North Korea has nuclear weapons and is bluffing.

But I don't recall China lambasting North Korea for "testing" nuclear weapons the same way it just criticised Australia for planning to build nuclear submarines. China probably knows North Korea is bluffing.

Oh, and let's not forget China recently threatened to go nuclear on Japan, so maybe Japan should do the same.
