Thoughts For The Week.

“As in nature, politics abhors a power vacuum.”
History has shown that weak, undefended countries are short lived experiences, until filled by a more violent power.
“We have between two and three years to go, before we have a major confrontation with China.”
History through the ages is littered with examples of Australia’s current demise. The pages of history prove to us that when presented with a power vacuum: there will arise a force; a country and Empire which will try to fill that void. History also shows that the force will be sinister. A force that will take away your liberty, your property, your happiness, and ultimately your life. I have seen the modern examples in my own lifetime, in the form of Communism, and have second generation knowledge of the scourge of Fascism in Nazi Germany, Italy, and the Imperial designs of the Japanese empire. Only 1 in a 100 examples are power voids filled by a benign power and China does not have a record of being benign.

Anson Chan, the former chief secretary of Hong Kong, occupied a position of trust unique in history. She was the last head of the Hong Kong civil service under the British and the first under the Chinese. She served four years under each, evidence that both powers trusted her impartiality and professionalism.
“I don’t think Australians understand the sort of country they’re dealing with. Look at the way they are infiltrating, even in Australia,” she said during a visit to Melbourne in 2016. “Australia is a very open society, so it wouldn’t occur to most people the designs of the one-party state. And it wouldn’t have occurred to the people of Hong Kong until we experienced it first-hand. No one should be under any illusions about the objective of the Communist Party leadership: it’s long-term, systematic infiltration of social organisations, media and government. By the time China’s infiltration of Australia is readily apparent, it will be too late.”

We’ve seen the pattern throughout history, with the empires, monarchies and savagery of forces seeking to conquer their known world, Babylonians, Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, Saxons, Danes, Norman, Mongols, the Spanish Armada, Napoleon, National Socialism, Hitler, Japanese Imperialism, Communism, Lenin and now Chinese Communism. They all have to try, as they know that if they fail to take an area someone else will fill the void. Power always seeks the ultimate in power. The opportunists are always rewarded, but not all win, some ultimately fail, but all leave behind them a total devastation, battlefields, personal human losses that in every instance the surviving common folk have to deal with until the next tyrant comes along. If there are any survivors at all.

Our Current Appeaser.
China’s ‘game-changing’ position will ‘reset the world order’, PM Scott Morrison says. China’s increased influence needed to be understood in terms of its rise.
“China in our lifetime has gone from a developing country, one of not great economic size or scale and not a large military, to the second biggest economy in the world with one of the largest militaries,” he said. “So it’s obviously been the game-changing country of our era and our generation. That’s obviously going to reset the world order. “We just need to understand that in its context. They’re a much bigger country than they used to be with much more influence, and that’s just something the system has to absorb and adapt to.”
Asked if the average Australian should be worried about China, he said “worry is not the word”.

Would “Petrified” be more of an honest response?
Is he mentally retarded, or is he a paid traitor for the Chinese like some of our other parliamentarians? Could he really be that blind to Chinese intentions.
Since 1949 China’s policy has been a never-ending pursuit of power, the relentlessly expanding influence and paranoid nature of the Chinese Communist Party invaded Korea, Tibet, Mongolia, East Turkestan, India, Vietnam means that it will continue to press outwards unless and until it meets resistance. It would be in Taiwan in a heart beat and is bursting to suppress Hong Kong. It has invaded Philippine’s Territory in the South China Sea and the world has done nothing. It has invaded Australian Antarctic Territory and Australia has not even asked them to leave. At home and abroad, it imposes one control after another until it is satisfied that it has total control. It is an ideology of authoritarianism animated by a psychology of totalitarianism.

The Appeasers are Sedated by this sort of Nonsense.

1. “No China can’t invade Australia.
China cannot break out of the first Island Chain or successfully invade Taiwan with a guarantee of success let alone Australia.”
Answer. The USA is not going to risk losing half its major cities to Chinese Ballistic Missiles to save Australia, South Korea, or Taiwan, or the Philippines. Once the threat of Nuclear War with the USA is removed, or fully cancelled Taiwan will not last a week.

2. “The distances are massive, 9,000km to Sydney, let alone Melbourne, Adelaide and the interior. China’s long supply lines can be easily interdicted by naval and air forces.”
Answer . China no longer has long supply lines it has bases all around us. Besides the South China Sea bases it has these as marked on the map.

3. “The forces required to invade Australia and secure it, are massive. Think of the Germans invading the USSR, Australia has great depth to fall back, hide, and counter attack at our choosing. No nation can successfully hold onto Australia with the deployments of hundreds of thousands of soldiers, perhaps a million.”
Answer . China has over 2 million men in its Army and millions more to call up. The Chinese also have a large well paid fifth column within Australia and subscribe to the creed to “Win Without Fighting”. Similar to Hitler’s strategy with the Appeasers he took the Rhineland, Austria and Czechoslovakia without fighting. Once they cut off our oil supplies and military goods our leaders will surrender and fly off to the South of France.

4. “The ADF would not engage in head on battles after a successful invasion, instead hit supply lines, logistics, hit and run tactics, use terrain and local knowledge to our advantage. Prior to the invasion force arriving which will need to traverse tight sea lanes and be visible to anyone who is looking.”
Answer. Amazing that people still see danger coming from the North of Australia, they imagine an enemy would be stupid enough to land in Northern Territory and march down to the southern capitals, when if all of their other ploys failed and they did have to fight they could either fly into the airports that they already own, or land anywhere between Sydney and Melbourne and drive to Canberra, or both. We have nothing to stop them. They have a Navy and Air force and we don’t.

5. “The Jindalee over the Horizon Radar System can track planes and ships in the South China Sea as far as Southern China. A large fleet headed to Australia would be tracked by this system or via satellite. Submarines and Aircraft would be used to either stop this fleet or reduce its effectiveness.”
Answer. More than likely China will take an off shore island like Lord Howe Island and one of the Chesterton Island and once supplied with J20 supersonic jet fighters and lots of missiles before turning off all our imports. From our six Collins Class Submarines we might get one to go to sea, as they are based in Western Australia it might take a fortnight to get to Torres Straits for its suicide run. China has 60 submarines and submarine drones even if we could send one or two destroyers or frigates they would be committing suicide again Chinese battle fleets with plenty of air cover.

6. “China would have limited or no air support. China has 1 Aircraft carrier with 1 locally built carrier soon to join the fleet. The limited numbers of aircraft they carry do not pose a significant threat to Australia’s air force which is also obtaining the F-35 Stealth Fighter. You only need to hit the air craft carrier to take out China’s air cover, then prevent China taking an airport/base as part of its invasion which would leave Chinese troops at the mercy of the Australian Air Force, it would be a slaughter. Australia would lose a number of F-18 Super Hornets to ship based defences, however combined with limited numbers F-35’s, P-8 Poseidon maritime strike planes, let alone the Australian Navy which would first use Collins Class Submarines.”
Answer. The Government stooge who writes the above clap trap has obviously not been informed of the two Chinese airport already here in Western Australia both controlled by Chinese State Corporations Citic and China Southern Airlines. The writer obviosly would not know that off shore Islands unlike aircraft carriers are un-sinkable, that China would not have to bring its carriers into the range of our air force, yet Chinese aircraft could dominate all of the East coast of Australia as the J20 has a range of 1100 miles. The J20 aircraft is considered a good match for the F35 maybe better, but no matter China has a lot more of them and has the factories that produce more when needed.

7. “Tiger attack helicopters would attack and landings and without air cover Chinese invading Ground forces would be decimated and easily repelled by the Australian Army. The US would also quickly resupply Australia with new aircraft, they have plenty of F-18 Super Hornets in the inventory to send us, plus the F-35’s will be rolling of the production line, they would be sent to the Australian air force to replace losses just as they did to Israel in its wars, we could also obtain resupply of smart missiles/bombs and other equipment we would require.”
Answer. Our 22 Tiger attack helicopter might have 12 working, China can draw on 1004, it also has 1500 fighter jets to give it as much air cover as it needs. The F-35s can role off the production line in the USA but Australia will have no means of flying or sailing them into the country. Re-supply of anything will be zero, as all sea way and air ways will be blocked by Chinese missiles or aircraft.

8. For China to successfully have any chance of invading Australia it would need to secure air bases and ports closer to Australia such as in Indonesia or PNG. This build-up of Chinese forces and bases would be seen and known well in advance and preparations would be made for a potential Chinese invasion. Without land based support from aircraft and a much shorter supply line an invasion would fail. Even with this the numbers of troops required to secure Australia’s population and hold the land against counter attack by Australian allies such as the US, Britain, NZ, Japan, Singapore to name a few would be immense and not possible.
Answer. We know about it already in advance anyway, we are surrounded by Chinese air bases and deep water ports. It has been seen, but our Appeasement Governments are too scared to alert Australia and place it on a ready for war footing. Defence problems happen quickly, China has land based support for its aircraft and short distances to its local ports and bases. China’s bases in Antarctica would assist with targeting Chinese missiles to knock out all government infrastructure. China has had much experience in securing civilian populations, it eliminates the none useful and makes slaves of only the ones worth feeding.
Good British, Canadian and American people would want there governments to assist Australia but they would be powerless to assist, China has its bases all in a row, it would control the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and the vast resources of the Southern Ocean, China’s southern flank will be secured they might be able to impose trade sanctions on China for a few years, they might stop the World Bank paying China a Billion US dollars every year in aid, but with all the resources from Antarctica, Australia and the South Pacific China will be an unstoppable world power. Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia. Indonesia, Africa and India will be the next ducks in the row.

China will not care about Global Warming, or Save the Whales, they want world domination and nothing will stand in their way. Ron Owen

It’s a week since I received a copy of “Range Officers Hand Book” and since that time I am nearly at the half way mark. I’m amazed at the at the number of subjects you have covered making it one of the most informative books to be added to my collection. It must have taken you a considerable amount of time and experience to publish the book with information not available in other popular Gunsmith manuals. I would recommend the book to “Range Officers” and anyone interested in the sport of target shooting and hunting.” Regards Gene M Cornford P.O.Box 288, Kaeo 0448 N.Z. Firearms Gunsmith, Dip M.G.S +Member of American Gunsmithing Assoc. The Range Officers Handbook is an encyclopaedia or omnibus of firearms and ammunition and the use of them, it has:- • 90 pages of Information for Range Officers, • 239 pages on Coaching to Win, • 110 pages on Air Rifle History &Training, • 33 pages on hitting Clay Targets, • 34 pages on Reloading Ammunition, • 6 page of Contents, • 18 pages of Index, • 38 pages of Old into New, ( Chronological History of Firearms) • 23 pages of Glossary of Terminology on Firearms and Optics • Over 1000 drawings and photographs. • Over 530 pages in a A4 stitched colour hardback., Some, hopefully will read it cover to cover, others will pick a heading out of the Contents pages and read a chapter or two, but no matter how much you know about shooting, reference material is always needed, as even people who rate as genius cannot retain everything. The real ability is being able to find out quickly and easily. You can check that you have the correct terminology, in the Glossary, check the Index and go straight to the right page. This book can be used as an information tool for a lifetime of shooting. $75 Signed by the author (state who you would like it dedicated to) plus $10 postage Australia wide.
