Australia To Host More U.S. Troops, Jointly Develop Missiles

Click to see full-size image

Australia announced plans to rotate more US troops on its soil and that it would cooperate with Washington on developing missiles.

Australia earlier announced a three-way alliance with the United States and Britain in which Canberra will acquire nuclear-powered submarines, enraging France whose own key contract for conventional submarines was scrapped.

Furthermore, Australian Defense Minister Peter Dutton said he would visit the US and Australia will be “significantly enhancing” cooperation including working together on the development of missiles and explosive ordnance.

He said Canberra was willing to see more US Marines in a 10-year rotation through the northern city of Darwin.

“I do have an aspiration to make sure that we can increase the numbers of troops through the rotations,” Dutton said.

“The air capability will be enhanced, our maritime capability enhanced and certainly the force posture enhanced.”

Dutton also pointed to Indonesia, Vietnam and South Korea as partners for Australia in the region.

“They understand the values that we adhere to and that we’ve been consistently adhered to for a long period of time,” he said.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison earlier had said that Australia would acquire long-range Tomahawk cruise missiles.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin confirmed that the United States “will expand our access and presence in Australia.” No numbers were given.

Austin said the two allies discussed concerns about China in the four-way meeting involving Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Foreign Minister Marise Payne.

“While we seek a constructive, results-oriented relationship with the PRC, we will remain clear-eyed in our view of Beijing’s efforts to undermine the established international order,” Austin said.

China has voiced anger about the nuclear submarine deal, which comes as Australia faces growing commercial and diplomatic pressure from the Asian power, a chief destination for its food and energy exports.

“Beijing has seen over the past months that Australia will not back down and the threats of economic retaliation and pressure simply will not work,” Blinken said.

“The United States will not leave Australia alone on the field or, better yet, on the pitch,” he said, using sporting metaphors.

In 2021, approximately 2,200 US Marines were scheduled to come through Darwin, but that number is likely to increase.

In another sign to China, Morrison will head to Washington for a first in-person four-way summit with Biden, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Welcome to Ausisistralia.
The newest CIA colony with an opression level on its population that would even make North Korea blush.

Ahson

Could you please elaborate on how Australia oppresses its population?

Bobby Twoshoes

Lol, are you serious? Placing entire regions under unending house arrest and coercing people to be unpaid and legally unprotected medical test subjects is the most blatant example but there are more insidious ways that I’m sure will go right over your head.

Ahson

but the ones unemployed get the dole no? Even housing if needed. You sound like somebody who is not Aussie, but a disgruntled muzlim no?

Bobby Twoshoes

Sorry to disappoint, I’m an Australian atheist and most of my family lives in Melbourne, you’ll have to try a different ad hominem.

Ahson

but, there is no reason to complain when Australia has one of the highest standards of living on this planet. Are you educated? Haven’t you worked in the resources sector? I’ve made a fortune in the last mining boom. I’m surprised you are complaining being an Aussie?

JC Denton

>Medical martial law
>Army deployed on the streets,
>checkpoints, can’t move 5km away from your residence,
>extreme police brutality against peaceful demonstrations, rubber bullets,
>construction of concentration camps for the uninjected,

and aussie version of the Fauc, Kerry Chant talks openly about the “New World Order”

Ahson

That’s why people want to live in Australia and not in Pakistan or India, you know?

JC Denton

What do Pakistan or India have to do with this? Did you never leave your slum? Australia is a penal colony once again.

Ahson

Are you a new immigrant to Australia? Haven’t you made a lot of money yet? Are you educated? There’s no excuse to complain if yous poor no?

Here, this is real easy if you are semi-literate:

“The tape is searing. There is the voice of an infant screaming as he is wrenched from his mother, who pleads, “There is nothing wrong with my baby. Why are you doing this to us? I would’ve been hung years ago, wouldn’t I? Because [as an Australian Aborigine] you’re guilty before you’re found innocent.” The child’s grandmother demands to know why “the stealing of our kids is happening all over again”. A welfare official says, “I’m gunna take him, mate.”

This happened to an Aboriginal family in outback New South Wales. It is happening across Australia in a scandalous and largely unrecognised abuse of human rights that evokes the infamous Stolen Generation of the last century. Up to the 1970s, thousands of mixed race children were stolen from their mothers by welfare officials. The children were given to institutions as cheap or slave labour; many were abused.

Described by a Chief Protector of Aborigines as “breeding out the colour”, the policy was known as assimilation. It was influenced by the same eugenics movement that inspired the Nazis. ”

I vote we change your name from “Ahson” to Ahshole”.

The US has no alternative but confront China if it seeks to retain its hegemony. But it will be facing the very war it needs to avoid.

Last time they confronted China on the battlefield was in Korea,they had their balls frozen off.

US Government doesn’t learn from it’s military blunders. Or, CIA dirty trick’s that often end badly. In WWII US Government found the same thing England did, neither could beat the Germans. They had to get Russia to do it for them, then stole the credit. US military had it’s hands full to defeat the Japanese, while committing some of the most heinous crime’s against humanity against the civilian population. Millions were killed in General LeMay’s 300+ B-29 night-time incendiary bombing raid’s over Japan. Except for four cities, Japan was razed to the ground. Then US Government nuked two of those cities in the biggest act’s of terror in world history. For no justifiable reason whatsoever. Need I remind, that attacking civilian infrastructure, and population’s are the definition of terrorism.
Korea was next, due to Kim’s rejection of Central Bank as Korea’s reserve bank. Thoroughly pissing off the criminal banking cabal. On to Vietnam, where US Government sent forces to assist it’s French ally against the Vietnamese, that had taken advantage of the French strategic blunder at Dien Bein Phu.
A French Command Center placed in an open valley surrounded by steep mountain’s. The French didn’t believe the Vietnamese could place artillery at the top of the mountains.
Until the 75mm shot’s were raining all over the French parade. US Government remained in Vietnam at the request of Standard Oil of New Jersey, for a couple decade’s, until US Government had ignored the demands of South Vietnam’s President (a US puppet) to leave. Three demand’s later South Vietnam joined North Vietnam, and attacked US military. It was a rout. US military fled, tail ‘twixt it’s leg’s yowling like a whupped pup.
Then on to bigger criminal invasion’s, and defeat’s in it’s war of terror against all countries that defied the City of London.
US Government is now attacking it’s own people, as well as the world’s civilian population’s. US Government is the biggest terrorist organization, and supporter of terrorism in the world today, and in the last 100 year’s. It’s made itself the most hated country on earth, and a laughingstock at the same time. A third of the brainwashed population is actively assisting our beloved Government in it’s de-population agenda’s.
US citizen’s, already paying for their own murder, and that of the world’s civilian population, are helping Government to kill us, while the rest stand by silently.
A testament to the power of military PsyOps, and propaganda.

Like the Filipinos, the Ozzies will soon have hordes of hookers accumulating around American bases.

Want to turn your nation into a glorified whorehouse? Host a U.S base.

Ahson

Philippines is doing great for the last good decade or so. Lots of development, jobs, expats moving back to Manila and many other cities. Have you visited Manila lately?

Arch Bungle

They’ve been doing well because they’ve rented out their girls as whores or sugar babies across the world.

And the pimps who’ve gotten rich off that can now afford a better education for their own elite kids, who live in Upper class segregated cities providing the illusion of improvement.

Shameful.
