    Interesting that this development follows news that UK now has rules and specifications for building and operating nuclear merchant ships. Hopefully we can now get some smallscale nuclear generating systems.

    Regarding the submarine thingy — i am under the impression the new Submarines are being built in Australia with shared UK and USA input, design and the like. Also, if a contract is so far behind it should be ended.
    When i departed UK very early 1961, Cammel Llaird’s shipyard in Birkenhead had just lost a 5 year backlog of ship orders due to delayed schedules caused by strikes and other problems. I understand France had already been paid billions for completed work, so can’t complain too much. Anyway, are the subs to be Aussie built ?

    All these nations spending billions on armaments, beggars belief.
    If that dosh was rerouted to feeding the people of the world and furthering co operation between these same nations I think those extra terrestrials might just land and finally say "at last"! LOL

    victoria its a sad world and true people are starving but the question is how much of the aid gets to the people it supposed to and would only make a few very rich sad but true? lots of sea front houses in the south of France are owned by African generals {it must pay well in their army} you think.. jp

    What a wonderful world it would it be if the US, Australia and UK were to combine forces and spend billions to defeat cancer, Alzheimer and dementia instead of more weapons of mass destruction. I had hope that the election of Joe Biden would signal a change in US foreign policy, that hope is now fading. Anti Chinese propaganda is being whipped up in the west and it is disappointing to see so many falling for it. It is noticeable that all the western multi national companies who transferred production to China to take advantage of the cheap labour there have not been advised to close their factories and bring back production to home countries.
    One important part of the US / Australia nuclear subs deal has not been mentioned. There will be an increased military presence of US troops stationed in Australia. The US has military bases in 200 countries of the world.

    #45 Rumour has it that Joan of Arc was the best soldier the French ever had. Bonaparte doesnít even come into the running as he was a Corsican. JS

    I would have thought Jacques de Molay was the best soldier France ever had, he to suffering the same fate as Joan of Arc being burned at the stake.

    Apparently, Defence minister Peter Dutton confirmed Australia will consider consider leasing nuclear submarines
    from US in the interim while waiting for new ones to be built while it waits up to two decades for new fleet to be
    built with help from Britain and the US.

    The South Koreans could knock them out in 6 months and probably cheaper as well. So if I was the Chinese I would invade anywhere they fancy now as not really a lot the west can do , apart from going Nuclear two decades to build a dozen submarines
    The Germans built 1100 U Boats in 6 years, okay I know things have moved on a bit but the Germans did this and fight a war as well. Why is it taking western powers 20 years to knock out a dozen Subs.
