New Zealand and Canada are the weak links of the Five Eyes 'Alliance'. New Zealand due to their cowardice and Canada due to their incompetence (inviting the Chinese military to observe Canadian combat exercises). Time for Australia, the US and UK to kick them out I think.

Russia is as much of a threat to the US as China. Good thing the US now has a president willing to stand up to both countries instead of capitulating to and appeasing them like the previous president.
The United States is the biggest threat to the entire world. For the entirety of the 21st Century and for much of the 20th, the US has been the chief exporter of violence, war, resource theft, poverty, international governmental interference and social upheaval. Your country has a lot to answer for.

Why NOT engage in economic warfare? Russia is run by a sociopath at the top of an organized crime family running a gasoline stand masquerading as a “country”. The West would absolutely crush them.
There's the typically psychotic, imperialist mindset of the violence orientated American. 'The West' is not going to follow the US Empire into another oil war.
You want to practice asymmetric warfare? We will show you what real asymmetry looks like.
Good luck when your country is at each others throats and is on the verge of social collapse.

How about sending some tank buster missiles to Russia’s enemies.
What a brilliant idea hey? Let's start a devastating war in Eastern Europe all because America feels that it's empire is being threatened.

Pot calling the kettle black much? The US is engaged in exactly the same clandestine hacking and surveillance activates as Russia, expect with the US it's on a grander scale worldwide. Add to the fact the US constantly interferes with many country's governments, the US has no moral high ground to stand on.
The US even interferes with the governments of it's close allies, the CIA had their hand in the unconstitutional dismissal of former Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1975, effectively the US orchestrated a coup in Australia, their most loyal ally.

China and Japan are Australia’s largest trading partners with China being the largest by far. Let’s hope Scomo chooses the right side to support.
Japan is the right side for Australia to support. China is a totalitarian state with no regard for international law, human rights, borders and conservation.

Why is it never mentioned how much it costs tax payers for each missile fired and how much it costs per km for these ships?
It will cost us far more than tax-dollars of China is allowed to steamroll the Pacific unchecked.

Winning at self driving technology, has the most data on cars already driving unlike the competition. Toyota, Honda doesn't even know where to start.
GM's SuperCruise has been universally declared to be a far-superior self driving system than Tesla's Autopilot. In all tests comparing the two, Tesla came in at a distant second.

Japan spending money to defend itself in ‘outer space’ - what a joke!
The majority of modern infrastructure is dependent on satellites orbiting the Earth. Japan, like any other nation, is wise to secure and protect it's space-bound hardware in the event of conflict

Eels, whales, tuna. Now saury? Japan is fishing the oceans to death. People, especially the Japanese, need to realize that not every damn meal has to consist of sea food or meat.
@Pukey2 It isn't the Japanese that are to blame, it is the Chinese.
Chinese fishing fleets are like migrating locusts, stripping the oceans bare out of pure greed. It's good to see that Argentina and Indonesia have started sinking Chinese fishing vessels once they enter those nation's territorial waters.

Given that China has deified the mass-murder Mao in that creepy mausoleum and are currently engaged in two ethnic genocides in Xinjiang and Tibet, the Chinese government has no right or credibility to complain about Yasukuni shrine and war crimes of the past.

Humans are a product of nature and are part of the earth. We deserve to be alive just as much as a polar bear.
I personally value human life above all else
Humans haven't been a product of nature or a part of natures cycle ever since metalworking was discovered 9000 years ago. Our numbers and damage to the environment were largely kept in check by natural pressures until the 19th century when industrialisation and modern medicine allowed our numbers to soar far past sustainable levels.
Nature never intended for the creation of plastic and for it to be strewn across the oceans, it never intended for oil and coal to be dug out of the earth and burnt on an ever increasing global scale. And why would you value human life above all else? I personally value human life less than all other lifeforms on this planet, simply because we cheapened the value of our own existence by being the prime cause of destruction and the biggest threat to all life on Earth.

Many Australians are from English stock so it does make perfect sense if your discussing foreigners.
There is much of Australia sympathetic to getting a free trade agreement with the old "motherland". We dont mind helping out the Britts as long as it is win win.
Either you aren't Australian or you are from a much older generation. The majority of Australians of British descent are now, at a minimum 3 generations removed and have no loyalty, feeling of close ties or desire to prop up Britain's economy as the UK's Plan B.

Feel free to not use any of the public services provided by other taxpayers. You do realise that the amount of tax you pay is minuscule in the grand scheme of the Japanese economy.

The Roman era ended around 500AD. The letter J was not part of the English alphabet since 1200ish AD. So the above statement isn't entirely correct.
English uses the Latin alphabet, this is an indisputable fact.
