In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, senator for NSW and retired Major General Jim Molan analyses the growing instability in the Indo-Pacific and frankly assesses Australia’s ability to rise to the challenge of a regional conflict.
Senator Molan then examines the global threat landscape such as conflict in Europe and the Middle East, as well as the US’ preparedness to meet these threats, to analyse Australia’s military deficits.
Finally, the senator looks at whether Australia has the resilience and sovereign capabilities in place to look after itself in the event of potential conflict.
