Over recent years, the United States and Australia are already very closely allied. At times that relationship adjusted under severe stress. For instance, in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan Australia has participated in NATO exercises and endured that sacrifice. This has been tough on the population which doesn’t like the war, what society does? This isn’t the only challenge about the home front as China is also spreading out its tentacles, and setting up small satellite military installations at maritime chokepoints near Australia.
Much Of Australia’s Fortune And Economy Are Associated With Its Relationship To Invest In China
Whereas most nations have a trade deficit, sometimes Australia has experienced an extremely nice surplus. This is because Australia sells China unprocessed trash, ones Australia has plenty. China needs all sorts of things including food, timber, and fuel. Australia is full of resources, and they’ve got enjoyed exporting all their excess to China and digging up more at breakneck speed. But that’s not all China wants to buy, additionally they much like the military technology that Australia has, a good bit of it they have this can relationship with NATO as well as the United States.
Australia can be building its high-tech submarines, ships, and military hardware. NASA has satellite and space base station technologies in Australia. China wants to borrow infrastructure and data therein Australia to assist track its satellites, and the US isn’t so sure it wants to have all that technology, dual-use technology, given to the Chinese. Not the Chinese haven’t stolen in other words borrowed that intellectual proprietary information from your defense contractors already. But in this example, it has already been created there, and China wishes to apply it, and learn all they can, of course, lots of scary implications there, taking into consideration the proprietary information theft, hacking, and spying of the past couple of decades.
In World Affairs, November-December Issue there is an interesting article titled; “A Tilt Toward China? Australia Reconsiders Its American Ties,” by John Lee. In this article, he is some astute comments, as well as the United States, should be aware that China can be a powerful economy, and Australia needs China to remain its solid GDP growth. Australia doesn’t want to reduce overhand that feeds them, it also realizes it requires the US backing as well. Because of where Australia is found, they might be fools to not participate with China in economic trade.
The United States is Wondering
The United States is wondering at what cost, especially mainly because it has cost the United States an amount of very solid industries, and a huge trade deficit, causing us to accrue huge debt. How long before China uses all that money they’ve acquired in the trade deficit to buy our nation slowly? Likewise, when will Australia say “no, you can’t have that, or we won’t sell it off for your requirements, or that is proprietary and secret information?”
Does Australia dare
Does Australia dare play that card all too often with all the Chinese for fear how the Chinese might go elsewhere to have resources, leaving Australia’s economy inside the dumps, today China doesn’t have any choice, but tomorrow it certainly will, all the while China is growing into a superpower? Please consider all of this and think about it.
