Hugh White still doesn’t understand

Hugh says “we do need to try to do some kind of deal” as China takes over the East China Sea, South China Sea and is establishing military bases on reclaimed reef islands in the southern China Sea. Warplanes, ships, and missiles would be closer to Australia than Christmas Island is and will directly threaten Australia and its sea lanes.

Could Hugh advise us how much power and sovereignty we have to surrender to China before the dragon is satiated? Hugh’s facetious remarks that Tony Abbott doesn’t understand the situation with China really reveal just how dangerous his pacifist comments are to the security of Australia.

Hugh uses the threat of war to back up his argument to be subservient to China in the hope of “peace in our time” but this usually goads the aggressor on to more demands. Try to make a deal by all means but at the end of the day what does a piece of paper mean when as Hugh says China is so determined to get its way. Hugh doesn’t understand how appeasement works and should study the start of WW2 when Chamberlain gave away half of Europe and it still did not satisfy the Nazis. Is there much difference between a Nazi nation and a communist nation?

China has to be stopped and blind Freddie can see that it is in Australia’s interest that China be stopped in the East China Sea and not after it has walked over the East and South China Seas and is knocking on the door of Australia. Abbott is doing this as he should and I give him credit for fully understanding the situation.

But unless Australia and other affected Asia nations arm themselves quickly we will have nothing to back us up in negotiations with China. The Chinese insults in the Globe put it brutally when it commented that what’s it matter if our Foreign Minister Julie Bishop is a “fool”, we have nothing anyway (to worry them).

Hugh White: Abbott doesn’t understand China

Hugh White is spruiking to anyone who will listen that the region and the US should be sharing power with China, a communist dictatorship that runs over anyone who mentions democracy in tanks.  Hugh talks as though Japan and the other US allies have no skin in the game and it is purely a contest between China and the US. He suggests Japan and by inference other allies of the US pull back from the coalition as their input is insignificant. China could have no greater friend.

Hugh’s facetious remarks that Tony Abbott doesn’t understand the situation with China really reveal just how dangerous his pacifist comments are to the security of Australia. His comment that “We do not have to choose supine surrender or inflexible resistance” Is a real corker. Hugh, what should we choose? You are telling us what China plans to do. Could Hugh advise us how much power and sovereignty we have to surrender to China before the dragon is satiated?

China has to be stopped and blind Freddie can see that it is in Australia’s interest that China be stopped in the East China Sea and not after it has walked over the East and South China Seas and is knocking on the door of Australia. Abbott is doing this as he should and I give him credit for fully understanding the situation.

Hugh should stop talking on behalf of the US and Japan and suggest what Australia and the rest of the freeloaders in the South and East China Sea should do to balance China. I hope the US continues this policy of disinterest until it forces Australia and the other nations to upgrade their forces. Australia should be spending 4% of GDP (Hugh suggests we should spend half this amount) on intelligent defence assets like nuclear submarines and substantial military exercises.

It is ludicrous that Australia has allowed itself to get into such a dependence on China for our commodity exports. It is equally ludicrous that we let China buy up Cubbie Station, our biggest cotton irrigation property and large tracts of the Ord River irrigation country as well as trillions of dollars of other investments.

Australia a ripe plum of the South Pacific

Bobby Bond SharpenedHow can a Boeing 767 jet liner with transponders turned off reportedly travel thousands of kilometres parallel to our north western coastline without being discovered by the Australian authorities? Nothing shows up the incompetence of our politicians more than when they can fail to have our continent and the surrounding oceans out to 2000 kilometres continuously monitored by radar, sonar sensors and reconnaissance drones capable of detecting the flight of a massive civilian jetliner.

This happened recently when Malaysian flight 370 was thought to have crashed in the Indian Ocean. It could have flown over Australia and crashed in the inland dessert. Our government would never know. This scandal highlights to our friends and enemies just how unprepared are our defence forces to defend our nation. The government could not do more to encourage spies, terrorists, or armies to land on our northern shores.

Yet there has not been one peep from any of our defence analysts or lobby groups. There just seems to be a learned helplessness that has the experts” hypnotized by the government propaganda intimating it cannot defend our shores. How do they expect to when they waste most of the 1.5% of GDP they spend on defence now on projects like the Collins-class submarines. The last Coles report states everything has been fixed up in a miraculous operation where Australia now has 2 subs operational out of 6 instead of 1 or none. The experts and the media swallow it hook, line and sinker and the nation is reassured.

There is a campaign with other government subsidised and influenced lobby groups lately to heavily criticize the US on their pivot to Asia and ignore the despicable contribution Australia and most other allies contribute to their own defence. What hypocrisy, when you consider the US has bases in Japan, South Korea, Guam, and rotating and training arrangements with most other allies in the area? Aircraft carriers, ships, submarines, missiles, bombers and other military equipment are on constant patrol of the Indo-Pacific area. What more should the US do, fight our wars for us whilst we hide in a fox hole somewhere?

Australia should wake up to the fact that the US has already done far more than it need do, and it is long past our turn to make our nation as safe as is possible with the resources we have.
