As others have already pointed out the problems with section 1 I will not comment on that section myself.

Section 2, as John Ford has said will cost us $7.2 billion per annum which is an exorbitant amount of money, I would prefer that if we are intending to grant aid to Taiwan that it scaled back. Taiwan is not our closest ally and I would not agree with it being the greatest recipient of Atlasian aid.

Section 3 sounds risky to me, it seems to be an open act of indirect aggression against China. If we are to fund these groups in China, I would far prefer it to be done a bit more discreetly than this.

Section 4 needs clarification. Is this to be ALL Atlasian missile technology? Is it to be up-to-date top-of-the-range technology or do we mean lesser technology. I would advise against sharing the best we have with nations in these areas as it is always possible for parts to go "missing".

John Ford has already pointed out the mistake with section 5 so I do not need to.

With seven votes in favour to none opposed I declare the amendment passed.

Now voting can begin on the amended bill seen in Jake's post on page one.


All Senators please vote yea, nay or abstain.

I have decided to abstain on this issue over the issue of funding directly internal rebels.

I now close the vote with six in favour to one opposed with one abstention.

I call upon the President to sign this bill into law.
