New Zealand is wise not to join and there is no reason to pick a fight with China and France over this.
The United States may be trying to lure China into a new arms race by letting Australia have nuclear submarines to rattle China's nerves. So what will China do next?
If Australia has the right to have nuclear submarines, what about Iran, North Korea? Us doing this will only upset the world, but it is good for US arms dealers.
Uncle Sam is acting more and more like a madman these days. First he allied with The Three Kingdoms to fight against China, then he offended Europe and just gave China a candy
Less and less understanding of our neighbour (Australia), China becoming another superpower and almost impossible to change, do they really think they can stop it? From the US dropping the prosecution of Meng Wanzhou, it can be seen that the US is not ready.
No, the US released Meng more because China kidnapped 2 Canadian hostages.
If the US really cared about its ally's citizens, it would not have gone ahead with the French order, more because it would lose face if it continued without evidence.
What New Zealand should do is to stick with the US while trying not to do anything to upset China, which is the wisest way to deal with it.
We currently have a good relationship with China, so it makes sense not to join the alliance, but I wonder why Canada is not on the list, is it because their loss on Huawei that Trudeau doesn't want to take sides with the US? I think this is a very important signal!
Canada may be more interested in repairing relations with China. Like New Zealand, they really have no reason to go first for the US. As for our neighbour, I can only say That Morrison probably thinks Australia has the strength to counter China
The United States is a country driven by the interests of a bunch of arms dealers, so it is in their interest to create regional unrest.
I think australians have been brainwashed by the Murdoch establishment to pick a fight with France for no reason.
The alliance seems to be aimed at dealing with China, but France is the first to get hurt. This will only make Europe closer to China, and the other four eyes except the US will only be disliked by the world more and more, because the AMERICANS only care about their own interests.
The US should ally with the EU to keep China down economically, not offend Europe with 2 irrelevant countries, the US can't win without Europe.
