    Do you have examples of actual wrongdoings?
  • JPRouve replied to the thread AUSUK.
    The effect is nothing, the US will give nothing when it comes to intelligence, they never had and never will. And the second part is interesting, the versions that you mentioned are the ones sold to Italy and at least one other country. to me it...

    It's supposed to be an EPR, right? :lol: The construction was a nightmare but EDF finally has two of them working.

    What do you think the pact actually change? Does it change the way the US /China will act and react? The pact is a tool to justify proliferation, nothing else.

    Why would you think that Australia isn't going to purchase submarines, they already have Collins class submarines and they need to replace them from 2030. The only thing that France dodged is money, there is no point pretending otherwise, France...

    As I said, it's early but my understanding is that France don't have an issue with Australia changing their mind, they seemingly have an issue with Australia not being as honest as they claim but it's seemingly not the actual issue. France has an...

    And from what I see from France, it's the US that France are targetting, not the UK and not really Australia. Thinking about what I wrote yesterday, my mind changed on the no long term repercussion because there is an accumulation of actions from...
  • JPRouve replied to the thread Russia's at it again.
    One of the obvious consequence is the lack of maturity of political movements and insitutions, both are also tighly linked to influential people from the previous era. When you think about it, it is asking a lot to expect Russia to function like...
