Wait, I thought we didn't need a military since our geographic "distance" (modern missiles can hit anywhere on the globe in two hours) protected us from foreign threats. At least, back in 1912 it did.
Wake up, Australia. Military spending needs to be our highest priority purely for reasons of self-defense, not "expeditions" and "regime change" in other countries. We lack basic defense of our own borders, forget about other countries. Gilliard has starved the national defense to the point of emaciation, directing the money to important government programs like giving lips surgically to chickens and running prawns on treadmills.
