The Reason for Australia’s Existence: To Build up China’s Military Machine! By James Reed
What a pitiful way for it to end, for the country to be like one of those bugs, whose sole purpose in life is to allow some higher order creature to secure their survival by using them as a resource. It seems that Australian iron ore is being used by China to build subs and perhaps other weapons of war. And why not; it follows in the good old tradition of pig iron Bob Menzies, who was happy to supply iron to imperial Japan’s war machine, that was in turn fired back at us! So what if it is fired back at Australians, so long as commerce flows, that is how the economically mad elite think! Anyway, this time we are too far too weak for any military resistance:
“Australian iron ore is suspected of being used to help build China’s next-generation nuclear-powered and ballistic-missile attack submarines, according to security and industry experts. Consignments from Australia’s booming iron ore exports to China are likely being diverted by Beijing into the steel supply chain for a massive expansion of the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), including its latest Type 096 and 095 submarines undergoing construction at Huludao Port. The revelations come as the debate over China’s expansion has divided the Morrison Government following stinging criticism by Liberal MP Andrew Hastie. Maritime experts told the Herald Sun that while China has huge domestic iron ore fields, high-quality Australian ore would provide greater purity benefits for the specialised, high-pressure steel plating used in submarines. The Australian government keeps an eye on which countries are taking its iron ore but has no policy of tracking which specific industries are using it because it is “not practical”.
The Chinese fleet has grown over the past decade to become the second largest navy in the world, including dozens of new destroyers, frigates, conventional and nuclear submarines, a second aircraft carrier now under sea trials and a third in the works. Analysts estimate China is now producing one submarine every three months and, at the major sea port of Huludao, Australian iron ore sourced from Rio Tinto is believed to enter the on-site smelting process. “It looks possible that some Australian iron ore could be legally sold and shipped to China Baowu Group to be transformed into steel plates for submarines by Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co. at Huludao,” University of Adelaide’s shipbuilding hub director Associate Professor Eric Fusil said. The Australian Strategic Policy Institute also has concern part shipments of Australian ore could find its way into downstream steel supplies for China’s navy while others point to use in Beijing’s controversial $1.3 trillion Belt and Road initiative stretching from the Pacific to Africa.
As this story details, the US is now so weak in the Indo-Pacific that China would eat them alive, and that goes for Australia too, over in a matter of minutes:
“The US is so weakened in the Indo-Pacific region, it could now lose a short, sharp conflict started by Beijing in just “hours”, up-ending the military order in our region. Furthermore, Australia is no longer able to rely on Washington to come to its defence. That’s the conclusion of a blunt new report that found years of spending cuts, an “outdated superpower mindset” and ageing equipment mean US military installations in the region are vulnerable to being wiped out by China in a surprise battle. “The stakes could not be higher,” the analysis by the University of Sydney’s United States Studies Centre warned. US and allied ports and airstrips “could be rendered useless by precision strikes in the opening hours of a conflict”, it states. The US’s woes means Australia will have to step up and make deeper military alliances with countries in the Asia Pacific region — even if that risks enraging Beijing. Canberra should also focus less on the Middle East and put its resources into the Indo Pacific region, the research advised. But far from doing that, Prime Scott Morrison today announced Australia would support the US in patrolling the strategic Strait of Hormuz to protect tankers from Iran’s clutches. “China has undermined America’s ability to project power into the Indo-Pacific, raising the risk that China could use limited force to achieve a fait accompli victory before America can respond,” the US Studies Centre report’s authors said.
“Australia should be deeply concerned about the state of America’s armed forces and strategic predicament in the Indo-Pacific.” The paper, entitled Averting Crisis: American strategy, military spending and collective defence in the Indo-Pacific, said military balance had been maintained by a line of bases and allies in the region that stretches from Singapore to Japan including Australia and the US island of Guam. These had created a US aligned bulwark on the so-called First Island Chain, off the coast of China. That had in turn deterred Beijing from, for instance, invading Taiwan, a US ally and democratic nation that China regards as a renegade province. But Washington’s military pre-eminence was now looking distinctly shaky, the report said. “The stakes could not be higher. Since the early 1950s, America’s position in the Indo-Pacific has rested on its ability to … preserve a strategic order in which no single nation dominates. “But this foundation of stability is now under strain. China’s military is increasingly powerful, while America’s war-fighting edge has dangerously eroded. “Many now warn that the US might fail to deter — or could even lose — a limited war with China, with devastating consequences for the region’s future strategic landscape,” it said.
This is the fault of the Left for tirelessly working to destroy Western civilisation. I hope these “useful idiots” go down with the ship as well. And, this is what the West is wasting time about today; diversity and immigration mania:
Australia has set the new “Brisbane Line,” at the South Pole!
