The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Aw gee! What if USA and UK are selling us a pup with the nuclear submarines – obsolete all too soon?

It’s not just that the AUKUS deal is phenomenally expensive for Australia – $171 billion. It’s not just that they won’t be ready for 20 years at best – when they would then be superseded by more advanced submarines.

It;s that submarines themselves are losing their gloss, anyway. Everybody who’s anybody in the nuclear-weaponry-tax-payer-ripoff world is realising that underwater drones are a heap cheaper, a real threat to nuclear submarines, and much better suited to the relatively shallow waters of theb South China Sea.

But I guess that the USA and UK have to try to make a few bucks by selling their existing soon-out-of-date Vanguard and Astute nuclear submarines.
