Chinese Targets

Defence policy is of course not just concerned with guns, uniforms! and targets adorned with Chinese faces at Burnham. Professor F.L.W. Wood of Victoria University told the School that "politics in the broadest sense set the problem."Territorial integrity is not the only thing at stake either. Professor Hedley Bull from the Australian National University in Canberra, discussing Australian defence policy, argued that:
