Nuclear subs deal sunk
If war in the Ukraine has taught us something it is that drones, missiles and intelligence are the future weapons of choice.
Submarines, whether conventional or nuclear powered are not in the mix and thinking we might rely on six submarines or Abrams tanks, for that matter, to defend Australia is risable.
The nuclear option is surely untenable, surely.
That leaves us with drones and missiles based in Australia controlled from Australia as our best hope of surviving.
But best we use discussion to bargain our way out of war.
