The about turn away from being a major trading partner with China and now the sub deal must be a response to the US saying that “you’re either on our side or your not”.

One defence expert reckons that to save face, we will lease some nuclear subs from France, considering that we don’t get any US subs for 10-20 years.

its laughable .... will there ever be subs? .... no doubt they'd get delayed - and by the time you get em nuclear powered subs won't be all the rage ..... it seems like its just an excuse to make some money flow and pee in eachothers pockets

Captain's Log, Stardate 43125.8. After the the supreme leaders of Earth Base gave us a zero option for the acquisition of our future fleet, they summonsed us to a meeting of the United Federation of Planets. It was not too long that we realized that the Enterprise would be required to quickly align to the Federations values or be left to perish.

Money talks, bullshit walks.

It's a damn shame it's taken so long to get so close to working out which way the wind is blowing.
