Letter to the Editor

Australia’s gone from being the lucky country to the lackey country and the majority have no idea the level of involvement the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) had in achieving this outcome, nor do they realise the control they have on our nation. When you consider the ASPI’s main sponsors* are the same US weapons industry members the author mentioned above, Northrup Grumman, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, one doesn’t need to be a rocket scientist to see it’s in US interests that Australians believe our biggest trading partner is the enemy.

There’s no disputing China’s leaders leave a lot to be desired but in nearly every war in the past century, US involvement was based on deception. From preventing Korea reclaiming sovereignty and the false flag that started the war in Vietnam to the lies about Qaddafi’s Libya and Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.

Knowing this history, I can’t for the life of me understand why the Australian public refuse to question the ‘China’s going to invade Australia’ narrative. Especially when you consider China’s almost surrounded by the US an Northern Australia is a giant, ever expanding US military base. While all this is happening the US is provoking China over Taiwan that wasn’t an even issue until the US made it one. We’re being lied to about Covid, climate change and the Ukraine just for starters yet Australians seem hypnotised when it comes to China.

As it’s clearly stated, China’s not a threat to US sovereignty, China’s a threat to US interests. The particular interest the US finds so threatening of cause is the US’s planned ‘Pivot to Asia’ and the spanner China’s Belt and Road Initiative throws into the works.

It’s no secret almost every nation on the planet including the US and Australia recognises the ‘one China policy’ which clearly gives Taiwan the right to do as it pleases including independence from the mainland but must not seek to separate Taiwan from China’s territory. Exactly what the US is attempting to do. The same tactic the US has used so many times times in the past, destablise.

Australia is losing China’s trade and willing to offer our nation as a nuclear target for supporting yet another US war of aggression under false pretenses and for all the wrong reasons, this time in our own region, with our biggest trading partner and not even our problem. Australia needs to decide if our involvement really is in our nation’s best interests.
