Australia's Dangerous Attitude Toward China
Pete Hartcher, Sydney Morning Herald
The U.S. announcement on the weekend that it's going to base most of its navy in the Pacific in future is probably a good thing for Australia. In fact, on current trends, we might have to rely on it.
Not necessarily because of any Chinese trends to assertiveness, although that's happening too. But we might need to rely on the U.S. armed forces because of what we are in the process of inflicting on ourselves.
