I've been a lurker of the forum for the lady couple months and finally got my membership approved the other day.

Professionally, I'm an apprentice chemical engineer with a minor in pharmacy. However, I've been interested in International Relations and the military for many years.

As an Australian, I take an explicit focus on China due to the large ripples they're leaving in the East Asian political sphere. Accompanying this, my nation's attempted shift to orient itself as a part of Asia under the Rudd government; accompanied by the overwhelming election of conservative, highly anglocentric forces as represented by the Abbot government serves as a point example of how divided western nations are, regarding the rise of China.

Chauvinism is often rebutted with an inappropriately warm embrace of a nation with intents and values that strongly conflict with much of the interests of the US. Australia fails to walk the line between her greatest Ally and her most generous creditor.

This post isn't a great personal introduction but I hope it serves to contextualise my attitudes and approaches I take on this forum.

Happy OSINT hunting!
