ANZUS

We need war drums like we need plague, starvation, drought and nuclear holocaust

Mike Pezzullo, Federal Government Home Affairs Department Secretary, a public servant, talked up war in an Anzac Day speech on 26 April 2021.
He was referring to China's ambitions to integrate Taiwan as a federation within mainland China government, by force or persuasion.

He cited Australia's 70 year old ANZUS alliance with the United States and New Zealand as a.

Finally, obscenely, he spoke of sending off, "yet again, our warriors to fight."

What kind of fight do a few Australian 17 or 18 year olds have with nuclear weapons and a Chinese army more than 2 million strong? What kind of war can you have to save "our precious liberty" from 'communism' [last I saw, China was a capitalist dictatorship] without simultaneously incinerating the rest of the planet, these days?

[Look up New Zealand's ideas on this]
