US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison almost announced simultaneously on Wednesday that the three countries will form an enhanced trilateral security partnership called "AUKUS." This has been regarded as an effort of the US to build a new alliance against China. The pact will support Australia in acquiring nuclear-powered submarines and enabling patrol of nuclear-powered submarines in the Indo-Pacific region.

The White House implied that the partnership is the first step that the US' European allies are turning to focus on cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region.

The US is hysterically polarizing its alliance system. Using an external force to push "middle powers" like Australia to the defense level of owning nuclear-powered submarines is a strong showcase to middle powers around the world. Although Washington claims that Australia's nuclear-powered submarines will not carry nuclear weapons, such restrictions are not reliable. From the very beginning, nuclear-powered submarines are designed to be strategic striking tools.

If the US and the UK help Australia acquire the cruising capability of nuclear-powered submarines, this will effectively legalize the acquisition of nuclear-powered submarines by all countries. This also means the legalization of international export of related technology. As Washington stirs up great power competition, more regions will be involved in rising tensions. Possessing nuclear-powered submarines will become a universal temptation. The world needs to prepare for the arrival of a "nuclear-powered submarine fever."

Washington is losing its mind by trying to rally its allies against China, creating antagonism and destruction beyond its control. It has been immersed in attacking China without seriously assessing the possibility of backfiring. The war in Afghanistan, which traverses one of the most stable periods in the world as a whole, has embarrassed the US. If the world really becomes chaotic, there will be many more setbacks ahead for the US to fall down further.

There used to be no grudges between China and Australia. Due to the geographical distance, there are no geopolitical conflicts between the two countries as well. However, by pursuing a one-sided policy tilting toward the US in the China-US strategic game, Australia has turned itself into an adversary of China. It is now escalating its confrontation with China by conducting nuclear-powered submarine patrols that are clearly targeted at China.

However, no matter how Australia arms itself, it is still a running dog of the US. We advise Canberra not to think that it has the capability to intimidate China if it acquires nuclear-powered submarines and offensive missiles. If Australia dares to provoke China more blatantly because of that, or even find fault militarily, China will certainly punish it with no mercy.

As Australia participates in the US-led strategic siege of China, it should remain self-aware and take a position that matches its strength. If it acts with bravado to show its allegiance to the US and takes the most prominent position in the US' anti-China strategy, especially by being militarily assertive, then Canberra will most likely become a target of Beijing's countermeasures so as to send a warning to others. Thus, Australian troops are also most likely to be the first batch of Western soldiers to waste their lives in the South China Sea.

Recently, some in Canberra proposed an Australian missile defense system. We believe this is necessary. Because Canberra is intended to send troops to the Taiwan Straits if a war breaks out there. Australian Secretary of the Department of Home Affairs Mike Pezzullo in April warned that "drums of war" were beating in a message to his staff. He said that Australia must be prepared "to send off, yet again, our warriors to fight," according to ABC News. Once the Australian army fights the People's Liberation Army in the Taiwan Straits or the South China Sea, military targets in Australia will inevitably become targets of Chinese missiles. Since Australia has become an anti-China spearhead, the country should prepare for the worst.

The US and its allies are messing up the world. They are even touching the bottom line of the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Here comes an interesting question: Who is more capable of withstanding the global chaos? China or them?

Please then transfer some naval reactor tech to us. Ideally the last 4 Hangors can be nuclear.

i told you that the US was going to create a Defense alliance against China.

and the USA is going to add a whole Fleet to Australia. with a AF command.

Japan is going to be the next country to join this alliance. then ROK, Singapore and yes Taiwan.

Japan has already stated they will not sit pat in a conflict between China & Taiwan. and at the Olympics called them Taiwan instead of China (taipai).

they added anti Air & Ship batteries to their islands just north of Taiwan.


if i was china. i would just keep growing as a economic power. and call this Alliance a way for Europeans to dominate East Asia and the east Asian people. and Asians need to banned together and determine their own futures. not be dominated by Western (whites) or their culture.

Are American guarantees as valid as those in Vietnam and Afghanistan?

the US was in Afghanistan for 20 years and in Vietnam for 11 years = 31 / 2 = 15 years, 6 months.

so i guess the US guarantee in a conflict is only good for 15 years, 6 months.

so the US allies can only hope that the war doesn't last that long

Why are they giving nuke subs to a country of 25million people. How can they justify Iran not having nukes or non-proliferation having any meaning? This is highly irresponsible and a step to creating a nuclear holocaust by selling nukes like pop corn.

Yes, that means Americans will always lose, no matter how long.
