Not How You Signal Power
our collective shame
So, we have this great new Australia-United Kingdom-United States alliance in the Pacific.
We are supposed to be the big power here - to instill confidence in the face of a growing China.
What signal does this ship send?
There is no excuse here. This speaks for itself.
I'm embarrassed for myself, my Navy, my nation, and for our friends for showing them so much disrespect by showing up as their guest like some late-Soviet trawler.
