Experts warn Joe Biden supplying nuclear submarines to Australia threatens US security | Australian military | The Guardian

France

A group of former US officials and experts has written to the US president, Joe Biden, warning the deal could threaten US national security by encouraging hostile nations to obtain highly enriched uranium (HEU). At the same time, the former Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull says if Australia does buy the submarine reactors without a domestic nuclear industry – and therefore the nuclear expertise – it will be “more plug and pray” than “plug and play”. The former Nato deputy secretary general Rose Gottemoeller has called on Australia to make a new deal with France to use their uranium, which is not weapons grade. That would heal the rift with France and ease nuclear proliferation fears, she said.

Scott Morrison has attached us to be allies of this mindset that calls this war peace

Under the leadership of then-Director Mike Pompeo, the CIA in 2017 reportedly plotted to kidnap—and discussed plans to assassinate—WikiLeaks founder and publisher Julian Assange, who is currently imprisoned in London as he fights the Biden administration’s efforts to extradite him to the United States.

What Strategic Game is AUKUS playing in Asia? – » The Australian Independent Media Network

As far back as Korea America abandoned peace and simply focused on redefining war and Australia and the UK have been swallowed up it that strategy ever since.

The United Sates seem to be undermining, with militarising the area with their Navy even though China is not interfering with the freedom of movement of international shipping in the South China Sea as admitted by retired US Admiral Cedric Leighton. In the 16th century we saw invasions from western powers with the Portuguese, Dutch and British saw invasions of conquest right up to the US in the Vietnam war. In these invasions was the western powers invasions of China and division on their country in the late 19th century, with a zero sum, your with us or you are against us foreign policy with Asia. Many horse gamblers bet odds on the historical track record of a horse US lead AUKUS group does not seem to have a strategy of Chess game and more like a game of Hungry Hungry Hungry Hippo zero sum win game in Asia.

How the AUKUS nuclear submarine deal affected Australia’s standing on the national stage

An illustration of Morrison and Macron.

Frozen out in Europe, feted in Washington, alarming some of its south-east Asian neighbours: questions are being raised about whether Australia has the right diplomatic skills and resources to perform on the world stage.

Is US-Australia Nuclear Sub Deal a Proliferation Danger, and does it Justify Iran’s Civilian Enrichment Program?

It seems to me that the only difference between Australians and Iranians in this regard is that Australia is part of the white Anglophone diaspora. It is also part of the Five Eyes intelligence program, which groups the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand and Australia (hmm, I wonder what they have in common)? Race is so central to US politics that it even comes into nuclear policy!

Morrison creating tensions with Asia and New Zealand – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Paul Keating added further concern with Australia’s current strategy in relation to China and military escalation in the South china sea if we have a situation is another reckless style Donald Trump leader is elected in the next US elections. The tensions in Scott Morrison’s move in the public and political realm in the Pacific is evident, in what appears to be very little discussion or debate with Australia’s most important Pacific partner before making his submarine buying deal which will give fresh indigestion to others.

That Fella Down Under! Scott Morrison’s AUKUS deal designed to win election, not make Australia safe – Michael West Media

AUKUS, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, submarines

Strap in for a media blitz on the threat from China. Prime Minister #ThatFellaDownUnder Scott Morrison and his merry band are about to take a war to the election. Michael West reports.

The PM’s army of propagandists has been working around the clock over the past two days marketing the latest announcement to a fawning press: AUKUS, a new “Alliance for the Ages as China Threat Grows”, according to The Australian. And what results!

Christian Porter’s secret legal payments are off the front pages, as is the JobKeeper mega-rort, the biggest transfer of wealth in history from working Australians to wealthy Australians and foreign corporations.

Early Thursday morning there was no AUKUS. The AFR did have a scoop though, splashing with: “PM to announce $90b French submarine deal is dead”.

France withdraws ambassadors to Australia and US over submarines deal – ABC News

French submarine FNS Amethyste passes a bridge as officers stand onto of the vessel.

China didn’t create this division among allies. But it goes to show just how much this is a new trade deal masquerading as the necessity for defence. For fuck sake the French have a presence in the Pacific but because the are EU have been abandoned with backs turned. Good one Mr Morrison.

A recall of ambassadors is highly unusual between allied countries France said it was unable to trust Australia in talks on a trade deal with the EU The EU is Australia’s third-biggest trading partner

ANZUS without NZ? Why the new security pact between Australia, the UK and US might not be all it seems

Having remained committed to the Five Eyes security agreement and having put boots on the ground in Afghanistan for the duration, “NZ” appears to have been taken out of ANZUS and replaced with “UK”.

Nuclear White Elephants: Australia’s New Submarine Deal – » The Australian Independent Media Network

It does not get any messier or more chaotic than this. Since 2009, when Australia’s Future Submarine Program (FSP) known as Project SEA 1000, began to take shape, strategists and policy makers have been keen to pursue the next big White Elephant of defence spending. And few areas of an already wasteful area of public expenditure are more costly – often mindlessly so – than submarines. The Australian effort here is particularly impressive. Pick a real winner by signing a contract for a yet to be designed attack class submarine, supposedly necessary in an increasingly dangerous region. Ensure that this design is based on a nuclear model and remove that attribute, aptly described as “dumbing down a nuclear submarine by removing the whole basis of its superior capability, and then charging at least twice as much for a far less capable submarine.”

Joe Biden forgets Scott Morrison’s name in awkward AUKUS call

Anglo American Alamo on Asia renting Fort Australia from from from a fella…. The SQAUKUS

They were appearing to talk up their close friendship, but Scott Morrison and Joe Biden’s AUKUS announcement quickly turned awkward when the US President appeared to forget our Prime Minister’s name. Mr Biden thanked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson but then paused as he addressed Mr Morrison. “Thank you, Boris … I want to thank, ah, that fella down under,” Mr Biden said.
