The pot calling the kettle black 🙁🙁🤔🤔 China do what I say not what I do And China doesn’t do this of course, destabilise the region with provocation, wolf diplomacy, destruction of Hong Kong, it’s stated aim of claiming Taiwan, its insidious road strategy and Internet hacks and its own military expansionism😎

Pandora's box 📦. If Australia can have nuclear submarines, why Iran, North Korea......cannot? And don't forget that One of China's nuclear weapons use policies is not to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries and regions. Here is Jean-Yves Le Drian -- who personally praised our ANZACs at the 2015 centenary celebration -- talking of his deep betrayal by Morrison's government:

They were totally blindsided and there was an easy option to make the Attack Class nuclear. Why not talk with the French? Why be so perfidious? Why wouldn't France be furious. The Attack Class was a de-nuclearised version of the Barracuda. If we wanted nuclear we could have just asked them to put the reactors back in. Plus Morrison fooled EmmanuelMacron during his personal visit in June.

This is a big announcement. Morrison's government treated the day before it as 'take out the trash day'. We musn't ignore what the $1,000,000 paid to Porter by a donor does for his vulnerability to undue influence: Such a blatant scare campaign by ScottyTheAnnouncer in the lead-up to the election is dangerous given he's just ensured we don't have news subs for 20 years! We just tossed out 5 years of design costing $2,400,000,000. Instead: a feasibility study!

Will the 1st submarine be called HMAS Stabby McStabFace ? auukus Good

'No doubt we will be hearing from China and no doubt China will be outraged'China will be left "outraged" by the newly announced defence pact between Australia, the US and UK, 9News political editor Chris Uhlmann says. Will we be parking the US subs in the port of Darwin that is owned by the Chinese? Who cares about what the CCP has to say - they should provide answers regarding the origins of COVID Good 😊

China responsible for two thirds of state-sponsored cyber attacksForeign governments like China and Russia are increasingly blending their cyber capabilities with criminal networks to hide their identity. Only 2/3? Just remember that Dan Andrews has four offices in China and went against Australia when signing us up to the Communist China Party Belt & Road scam.
