The recently published Defence Strategic Review has provided a worrying description of the current strategic circumstances. Our military planners cannot simply focus on preparing for potential threats as we are already facing those threats.


This article by Justin Bassi and Bec Shrimpton, writing for ASPI, makes the following points:
  • Beijing's objective is to be so powerful that no other nation has the confidence to challenge its behaviour.
  • Meanwhile, Moscow's invasion of Ukraine shows what happens when countries allow their military capabilities to lag.
  • The US alliance is becoming even more important to Australia in terms of maintaining a global and regional strategic balance.
