 Sen. Jim Molan warns Australia about China’s aggression!

14.09.21.  Australia’s military spending must increase in the face of an “extraordinary threat” from China, according to a retired army major general. Liberal Senator and retired army major general Jim Molan says a “regional war” involving Australia is a very real possibility in the “next couple of years”. Mr Molan said Australia has not since World War Two faced the type of dangers that it does over the coming years. But the Liberal Senator said there was a great deal of complacency to shore up the country’s defence capabilities among the Australian population and the political class. “There’s a deep feeling in Australia that the United States’ power is infinite,” he told Sky News Australia. “The Americans keep on running war games because they know since the end of the Cold War their military power has decreased by 30-50 per cent.

Jim Molan warns Australia must shore up defence capability to prepare for ‘extraordinary threat’

“They run war games and they find that they don’t win.”
Mr Molan said if a scenario involving a Chinese invasion of Taiwan emerged, the United States’ military community would suggest the superpower could “go in and get defeated” or choose not to come to the island nation’s aid.
“Either of those are a disaster for this country (Australia),” he said.
The retired major general said the imminent threat had to serve as motivation for the Australian government to invest further into the country’s defence budget.
“We’ve decided the size of our defence force not based on any need, not based on what it has to do, but based on what each successive government thinks they can afford,” he said.
“There are four things that we can do; We’ve got to keep doing what the good ministers are doing at the moment – that is they’re fixing legacy problems.
“We’ve got to come up with a national strategy which goes across every part of the nation including defence. We’ve got to start spending money on defence in relation to what the strategic environment demands not what’s left over.
“We’ve got to prepare very seriously for enhanced grey zone (conflict). If people think what China is doing to us – which a lot of people call grey zone conflict – is the worst it can get, well it can get a lot worse.”
Mr Molan’s warnings come only months after the then- Head of the US Indo-Pacific Command Admiral Philip Davidson spoke about China’s hastening military expansion.
“I worry that they’re (China) accelerating their ambitions to supplant the United States and our leadership role in the rules based international order which they’ve long said they want to do that by 2050,” Admiral Davidson said in March.
“I’m worried about them moving that target closer. Taiwan is clearly one of their ambitions before that and I think that threat is manifesting this decade, in fact in the next six years.”

    I suppose there’s always a positive to be found somewhere in this slow motion train smash – the Chinese won’t insist upon every Australian female wearing a head to toe black bin liner.

    Sadly, that’s about the only positive spin I can come up with for the future of this country.

      There’s another one – think of all of the coal fired power stations the Chinks will open.

    Pity the poor Tasmanian bastards who will be the first victims of a Chinese invasion. The CCP wants Hobart as a military port and a base for exploiting rare earth minerals under Antarctica when they unilaterally seize the great ice continent. Own the world’s biggest supplies of rare earths and you own the modern world.

    And the forward battalion is already here. At LEAST 10,000 of the Chinese in Australia are chicom operatives. They have already identified all the critical soft targets – electricity substations, optical fibre nodes, rail control centres, and have the ability to take them down at will. Hundreds of them are key players in the green movement, sexual perversion agitation groups, political parties – anything which weakens us. They play a very long game and we have already lost it. We need to identify them NOW and deport them all.

    There will be a grand market for left handed chopsticks that can also be used as drinking straws via the hollow stem so I have applied for a patent. The first thousand sets will have the Sydney Harbour Bridge engraved on them and also 10% discounted instructional courses will be available for ABC staffers and residents of Heard Island. A share float will occur soon so stay tuned.

      Are they designed for people who have had their teeth knocked out?

        That’s why the stem is hollow so they can suck bat or rat soup up. I got the idea for when working for a branch of them I was counselled for not eating enough rice. My reply was that I had been issued with a set of left handed chopsticks and I was right handed. They confiscated my ornate chopsticks and sent them away to get tested to see if in fact they were R or L handed ones.
