Australia is partnering with the United States in the major defence project, which will increase security in the Indo-Pacific region. Western democracies are increasingly growing concerned about the hostility of Communist China.
The news comes nearly at the same time as the European Union prepares to launch a common project that will deter Communist China's increasing hostility towards the democratic nations.
The democratic world has been deeply concerned about the true intention of Xi Jinping and the Beijing regime after it repeatedly denied the free and independent investigation of the world medical disaster it caused by the mismanagement of the virus, one top European politician said on the condition of anonymity.
Some independent Western analysts, as the Owner has learned, have labeled the Chinese Communist Party, as Nazi in reference to the World War II context, to draw the full attention of the politicians to the incredible and massive threat which Beijing constitutes to the democratic countries not only in the Indo-Pacific region. In the major capitals of the world, the brightest and most experienced politicians and professionals have been trying to figure out how to address a looming threat of the war which Xi Jinping has been preparing for the world.
As the Owner has learned, in the last few weeks, some European governments made unprecedented decisions to share, discreetly, some information about the danger with the leading figures in the business world. Some of these leaders are seriously considering to relocate their production and stop implementing advanced technologies in China.
One of the ways to address the threat, although not entirely sufficient, is the alliances and partnership between democracies and sharing information, technology, and experience across the board.
Australia will jointly develop hypersonic cruise missiles with the United States in a bid to counter China and Russia which are developing similar weapons, Defence Minister Linda Reynolds stated on Tuesday.
We will continue to invest in advanced capabilities to give the Australian Defence Force more options to deter aggression against Australia's interests, Ms Reynolds said in a statement.
Minister did not reveal the cost of developing the missiles or when they would be operational.
Australia had set aside up to A$9.3 billion this year for high-speed, long-range missile defence systems, including hypersonic research.
Hypersonic missiles are capable of traveling at more than five times the speed of sound and the combination of speed, maneuverability and altitude makes them difficult to track and intercept.
US deploys the hypersonic weapons ahead of time
The U.S. Air Force might have taken a leap forward in deploying a hypersonic-missile armed B-1B bomber, arming a classic aircraft with the weapon, according to a USAF-released photo from Edwards Air Force Base in California.
Adapting a small number of our healthiest B-1s to carry hypersonic weapons is vital to bridge between the bomber force we have today, to the force of tomorrow, Air Force Global Strike Command Gen. Tim Ray said in a statement, per the report.
American Army might have made such decision after it has been revealed that China deployed the newest hypersonic missiles in its bases believed to be used during the invasion of Taiwan.
China's most advanced hypersonic missile, the DF-17, is being deployed to People's Liberation Army (PLA) bases in the provinces of Fujian and Zhejiang, which sit right across from Taiwan, the author of the report informed.
In addition to this move, PLA deployed Russian Triumph III, the air defense system, which is believed to be able to threaten any aircraft over Taiwan.
The European Union will call on the US to forge a new global alliance to meet the “strategic challenge” posed by China.
The 11-page set of draft policy proposals, entitled “a new EU-US agenda for global change”, says the EU-US partnership needs renewal if the democratic world to assert its interests against “authoritarian powers” and “closed economies that exploit the openness our own societies depend on”.
The paper, quoted by Financial Times, says: “As open democratic societies and market economies, the EU and the US agree on the strategic challenge presented by China’s growing international assertiveness, even if we do not always agree on the best way to address this.”
EU proposal follows the NATO report calling for increased cooperation with the democratic countries who are not part of the alliance but face similar threats to their cyber, military, and economic systems, like democracies in the Indo-Pacific region.
Beijing did not send any signal that it wants to reverse its policy of unjust tariffs
On Tuesday the Xinhua columnist appeared to strike a conciliatory tone discussing China's attack on Australian economy but it did not cease to reproduce false accusations against Canberra. China has never shut its door to Australia. What needed now is that the Australian side should show sincerity and take concrete actions, the author suggested.
It's earnestly hoped that Australia, an independent sovereign state will truly make independent, objective, sensible choices on its relations with China, the author stated.
The Xinhua author of the column "Australia should make independent, sensible choices on China ties" concluded that Beijing hoped that Australia would truly make independent, objective, sensible choices on its relations with China.
But the Communist China's regime did not send any signal that is going to change its unjust decision to impose unjust tariffs on Australian exports.
