'Millions dead': Unsettling prediction about conflict with China

Amid recent speculation war could be on the horizon, an unsettling and stark prediction reveals the mass devastation that could result from such a scenario. Director of the Australia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology, James Laurenceson, said while newly-appointed defence minister Peter Dutton may be preparing Australians for any involvement the nation will have in potential military conflict in the Indo-Pacific, there is little mention of the horrific consequences that could result.

“We’re talking millions dead, including Australians. A global economic disaster. We’ve got to raise the entire reality of what a war would actually be like," he told Crikey.On Sunday Mr Dutton told the ABC the possibility of conflict could "not be discounted" as China pushes ahead with its plans to force a reunification with Taiwan. He also stressed Australian forces would be ready to act if called upon.
