    Hi there, I'm a mid 50's New Zealander who's had an interest in defence matters for some years now, not so much from the equipment/tactical angle but more from the unique view on the world that military personnel have. I'm an avid reader of history and find military accounts of both campaigns and the politicians who drive them to be far more accurate than the usual potted histories put out by civilian academics. I see I am familiar with a number of posters on this forum already from other forums including OoE, Tronic and the good Brigadier Ray to name a few. Pleased to be aboard.:cool2:

    Regards
    Parihaka

    Welcome and good to have you around.

    We sure can have some insight on the Australian views on the strategic issues of the US plans to have its strategy of Asia Pivot.

    Coolness, thanks for the kind welcome and words, good to see some familiar faces about. Ray, lovely to see you again, it's been too long. As an aside, I couldn't possibly pretend to know what the Australians think

    Edit to add; damn, smileys no work, never mind
