CEO of the United States Studies Centre Dr Michael Green appeared on the Diplomates: A Geopolitical Chinwag podcast to talk about all things AUKUS, including why the US has shared its ‘Crown Jewels’ of nuclear propulsion for the first time in 70 years, the huge national mission Australia must undertake to get subs in the water as quickly as possible, why Xi Jinping is the godfather of AUKUS, how advanced military kit acts as a deterrence to war, the possibilities of new technology transfers under phase two of AUKUS and how having nuclear submarines increases Australia’s national sovereign agency.
