We have the funding for anything we like. Government cannot run out of money. The real questions are what is efficient, fair, and will not have negative monetary consequences. Spending buckets on productivity improving projects will not be a risk. Funding defence is very strange, yes equipment becomes obsolete but the skills and organisational infrastructure do not.I agree that there needs to be an increase in the size of the ADF, but if we've got the funding to double it's size, I'd rather spend much of it on developing our manufacture base and our own infrastructure.The current coronavirus crisis illustrates just how much this country relies on it's foreign imports--much of which were produced using raw materials sourced from this country. Having lived and traveled in a number of Far Eastern countries, I've also come to realize just how backwards this country is compared to other more developed areas, such as the internet. Doubling the size of our military does not make sense at the moment because a lot of equipment would be obsolete pretty quickly. I'd rather spend money on the industries that underpin it.
