Australia-US submarine deal: Scott Morrison, the third amigo, speaks loudly to Xi

Let’s face it this is an economic trade off and appeasement to the Anglo/ Industrial Military Complex for the business lost in Afghanistan,Iraq and Syria. Morrison was simply the Indo-Pacific smokescreen in the arrangement. The Age for once puts up an extended and reasoned opinion about about the slyness of a move that has Dutton’s fingerprints all over it.

The three amigos – an Aussie marketing huckster, an English buffoon and an American senior citizen. Fresh from being chased out of Afghanistan and humiliated by barbarian terrorists they’d set out to defeat 20 years earlier. Their marquee initiative – for Washington and London to supply nuclear propulsion technology for Australian submarines – is serious. But Canberra has no ability to make use of it in a deployable submarine for at least another 20 years. What’s the point of giving an engine to someone without a car?
