The defence industry lobby group Australian Strategic Policy Institute is acting to ratchet up tensions with Australia's major trading partner China and using funds it gets from the Federal Government for this purpose, more than $20 million at last count, the Australian arm of the Chinese telecommunications equipment company Huawei Technologies says in a strongly-worded blog post.
The only logical conclusion that one can draw from the latest inspired effort from the defence industry lobby group, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute — calling for ISPs to provide a clean Internet — is that the good people at this institute have been smoking some very strong stuff.
