The axiom?

'speak softly and carry a big stick'

This began with American president Theodore Roosevelt. In a letter to Henry L. Sprague, on January 26th 1900, he wrote:

"Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."

I wonder if Shanahan is going to fit Ausralia in at some point. maybe he is afraid of leaks to the press on strategic matters.

It will be nteresting to see what happens with this in terms of the U.S, alliance with Australia.

Something to keep an eye on.

C7 out.

No wait. It’s Pelosi that does that.
