Australia’s weapons of war – even third world countries with nuclear weapons can blow us out of the water.
The weapons of war are now becoming more sophisticated and advanced than at any other point in time. Russia has developed a nuclear weapon that can hit a target anywhere on earth with impunity, cannot be shot down.
China has developed a hyper velocity missile that travels fast, very fast and cannot be shot down. Currently cruise and ballistic missiles can be targeted and shot down, ground, ship and air interceptors could destroy them. However, the new missiles with high speed can avoid being destroyed by conventional weapons and that is frightening.
The US are spending over $10 billion on sensor detection equipment capable of detecting, tracking hyper velocity missiles. The new missiles make protecting attacks on US bases, aircraft Carriers and allies around the world more difficult or impossible.
0ur defense in comparison is like a bloke with a tin helmet and a shotgun sitting on top of Parliament House hoping to shoot down any low flying cruise missiles aimed at us. We don’t even have an anti-missile battery, nor any nuclear weapons to retaliate with because the progressive-left throw a fit when anything nuclear is mentioned.
We can no longer rely on the US now to deflect a missile attack on us. We are remarkably vulnerable as a nation, even third world countries like India and Pakistan armed with nuclear weapons can blow us out of the water without any risk of effective retaliation.
We cannot fiddle about any longer trying to manufacture ships and submarines that will be obsolete when completed and ineffective against modern missiles. Our scientists and armament experts need to be focused on missiles, miniature weapons technologically, advanced supersonic weapons and hypersensitive detection equipment to shield us from attack and we need to do this now as we have been asleep at the wheel.
