Australia-US Alliance

Australia-US defence alliance

The average Australian has been enveloped by the inevitability of the US alliance as if it were a natural result of our history and “shared” values, writes Roger Davies.

We condemn the terror attacks in London and Manchester, but we also need to call out the cynical and dangerous response from those in charge who have one solution — more of the same.

British Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump are using these tragedies to ramp up Islamophobia, expand police powers, weaken civil liberties and strengthen the “war on terror” — the same policies that have failed to stop individuals from carrying out terror attacks.
