What Strategic Game is AUKUS playing in Asia?

Image
 In the 2004 movie Alexander which depicts Alexander The Great's push into Asia, Alexanders long time colleague says to him:  "The generals question your obsession with Darius. They say it was never meant for you to be King of Asia." The newly established Australia, United Kingdom and United States AUKUS alliance has a similar obsession in Asia and that obsession is China. This obsession for conquest in clearing Asia from any China input ignores China has been trading with South east Asia, even as far back as the time of Alexander with the later part of the Zhou Dynasty having Maritime Silk Road trade routes into South East Asia.  See reference:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maritime_Silk_Road This was a the early times of trade and diplomacy for China with South East Asia which existed right up to the the 13th Century with Sandalwood trade with East Timor, then the Australian Trepang trade through Malaysian seafarer traders, before Australia was colonised and invaded by

DO THE AUKUS PIRATES HAVE RESPECT OF LAW OF THE SEA?

The AUKUS anglo trilateral crew of pirates are preparing their fleets for the South China sea to enforce, what they are calling the Law of the Seas.  Leading the charge to the South China of these South China Sea Enforcers is Buccaneer Biden from the US, Crooked Eye Convict Scotty from Australia and Jolly Jellyfish Johnson from Britain.  With this unlikely crew leading the charge in enforcing their  Pirate Code Law of the Sea  interpretation, it is important to examine their home country record regarding the Law of the Sea. Buccaneer Biden from the United States failed to sign the 1994 ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, citing it as not in their economic interests.  The US may have found a problem in their economic interest in regards to Part XIII "Marine Scientific Research", in Section 2 titled "International Co operation on Article 242", in  UNCLOS, which  states the following  "States and competent international organisatio

Now with Scott Morrison looking for a Wag The Dog style distraction by creating a fear mongering  threat in China, France feels left out in the cold asking Australia, US and Britain why did you not FAUKUS into the AUKUS discussion prior to it being created?  Reference link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wag_the_Dog In a move that has created tensions not only with France, but with New Zealand the European Union being been left out of the loop with trilateral pact, Morrison's regard for consultation takes a back seat to his use of fear to distract from the mange of domestic politics, in an old "Wag The Dog" tactic .  Bipartisan Australian tensions with our Pacific partner New Zealand are heightened, with Opposition Labor leader Anthony Albnaese following Morrison's wagging tail in joining the AUKUS hawkish Anti China pact.  Apart from France feeling left out in the cold with the Australian Nuclear submarine deal and being left out of discussions on AUKUS, the decision

ALBANESE ACCEPTING NUCLEAR SUBS.

 In a statement from Australian opposition Defence Minster Brendan O'Connor's office authorised from Labor Leader Anthony Albanese and opposition Foreign affairs Minister  Penny Wong, Australian Labor appears to be accepting the nuclear powered submarine deal, with some house keeping checks as follows.  "While there is much that we welcome, it’s also clear that today’s announcement is the single biggest admission of failure on the part of the Morrison-Joyce Government over its $90 billion Future Submarines program."      The Morrison-Joyce Government must also urgently explain: The cost of this new plan. The number of submarines to be built. The impact of today’s announcement on local jobs and businesses The timeline for construction and delivery of the nuclear-powered submarine capability. The impact on the Life of Type Extension (LOTE) of the Collins Class submarines. How local skills and know how will be delivered through the biggest acquisition in Australia’s hist

SCOMO BUYS SUB. "EATING FRESH" TENSIONS IN ASIA & WITH NEW ZEALAND LEADER

Fresh from Scott Morrison's announcement to go to Washington later this year after Australian Foreign Ministers Asia and Washington visit,  Scott Morrison introduces nuclear Submarines to Australia, as part of AUKUS pact between Australia, Britain and the US to take a assertive military approach to China in the South China Sea.  It is likely this AUKUS or ORCUS nuclear submarine deal will see these pod of AUKUS Nuclear submarines sent to the South China Sea creating more heightened tensions between Australia and China, from an already rapidly deteriorating relationship.  In a hawkish pivot to Asia with the AUKUS pact, US military aircraft and weapons are looking to be stored in Australia seemingly to support sending forces into the South China Sea.  In a further development the US has pulled out Patriot missiles which appears to be in line with a pivot to Asia military redeployment build up.  Reference link: https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/05/19/military-pivot-middle-east-saudi-arab

WAS RUDD'S DOWNFALL AN ACT OF US POLITICAL INTERFERENCE?

A strange thing happens in Australia politics when Australian Prime Ministers begin to distance their Foreign Policy influence from the US, in that their political leadership is cut short.  We have to look no further than the case of Gough Whitlam's 1975 dismissal at the hands of then Governor General Sir John Kerr who was a British joined a United States political anti left organisation 'the London based Congress For Cultural freedoms in the 1950's which was later revealed as a CIA political front influence organisation.  Reference link: https://books.google.com.au/books?id=Tc-1AQAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=inauthor:%22Hugh+Wilford%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=byLSUoWJLITXkQfOw4H4Dg&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false  In 1974 wile Whitlam was in power 24 million dollars of US money was laundered through the corrupt front Nugan Hand bank which was based in Sydney, Singapore and Hong Kong, which was given to the Liberal party to beat Gough Whitlam.  There
