Washington report floats US nuclear attack subs and warships in Perth

Washington report floats US nuclear attack subs and warships in Perth, by Cameron Stewart.

US nuclear attack submarines and navy warships should be based in Perth in response to China’s growing power projection into the Indo-Pacific, a new US report warns.

The report says Australia and its allies must “spotlight and push back” against China’s stepped-up efforts to project power and build military infrastructure in the region. Otherwise, it warns, Beijing’s behaviour may “upturn longstanding assumptions about the Indo-Pacific region remaining free and open”.

If nuclear subs are so dangerous to host, as I’m sure our Greenies will say, how come the US hosts its subs in its own cities?
