You should get out here and join him for Christmas. It's certainly different to your usual one!

Are Australian snakes the deadliest in the world? Not even close

They the most venomous- but fatalities are rare.

Vipers kill far more in Africa and the subcontinent - and they don't even make the lists of 'most venomous'.

Good old economics....

Quite a few NSFWs but lots of lols (and way too many home truths)

Let me congratulate all Australians for a wise procurement decision. Smile


How France sank Japan's $40 billion Australian submarine dream

By Tim Kelly, Cyril Altmeyer and Colin Packham for Reuters - 29 Apr. 2016

In 2014, a blossoming friendship between Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe looked to have all but sewn up a $40 billion submarine deal. Then French naval contractor DCNS hatched a bold and seemingly hopeless plan to gatecrash the party.

Almost 18 months later, France this week secured a remarkable come-from-behind victory on one of the world's most lucrative defense deals. The result: Tokyo's dream of fast-tracking a revival of its arms export industry is left in disarray.

@Olivier5,
With an election on the imminent horizon, I'd not be holding my breath on that one.

@Builder,
Let's see. I imagine the idea of using australian shipyards will also lead to a lot of back and forth, e.g. about who's liable for what. The French are commited to make it work though. They see this deal as a strategic opening, not just commercial but also defence-wise. Concerns about China's rise as a military power are shared by many including the French, who still have territories in the Pacific. The sale of Rafales to India can be seen in the same light. Officially of course, China is a friendly nation and all that, but unofficially they scare the **** out of everybody.

@Olivier5,
The BRICS consortium is the new world power. That should be front news on every tabloid in the US, along with them not using or trading in the petrodollar.

The Whitehouse has been in lockdown for a few days now.

I smell a new paradigm, and it has no stars nor stripes.

Yes, the old world order is dying. More than a century ago, the rise of Japan was another game changer.

The machinations behind the GFC, and revelations that US federal reserve is part of a ponzi scheme, gave the Chinese admin the push it needed to start refusing US treasury bonds. The push into the Ukraine was the tipping point for Putin.

He gave them fair warning that their program of regime change isn't going any further. Russia's intervention in Syria exposed quite a lot of things that were suspected for a while now.

Australia is fairly and squarely caught in the middle of this situation. Our alliance with the NWO is going to be tested in the near future.

I bet they are very hoppy to pull a sled. (creates a joyous picture in my head)
