Tim was wondering the other day about the implications of Australia's latest purchase of weapons of middling destruction. Personally, I agree with surfdom commenter tim g, who said:

It's just common sense, really. If your foreign policy results in swelling the ranks of your existing enemies, and creating whole new enemies, you had better start beefing up your defence.

Too true. That inevitable, senseless cycle of paranoia and one-upmanship was what I was getting at recently when I was laughing at the absurdity of the anti-missile missile.
