I believe that the current sabre rattling with China is wrong and irrational. I believe that Australia should stand on it’s own two feet in matter of national interest, not rely so heavily on the US. New Zealand is a good example of this. I believe that other nations would have a much healthier respect for us. As it stands now, I believe that we are viewed as being weak, that we’re too frightened to be independent. A ‘loser’ mentality if you will.
I think that we should re-think our foreign policy. War is not the answer.
