The National Interest, in its January/February 2015 edition has just published an article by Malcolm Fraser, ‘Australia’s dangerous ally’. The National Interest is not sold on news stands in Australia, but it is available online.
Malcolm Fraser concludes his article by suggesting several steps that Australia should take to address problems in our relationship with the US. First, the removal of US task force out of Darwin. Second, closure of facility at Pine Gap. Third, expanded diplomatic facilities and relationships in our region. Fourth, a boost to Australia’s defence force spending to about 3% of GDP.
This article is based on submissions that Malcolm Fraser made to the 2015 Defence White Paper.
