In the 70s, Claytons was a popular non-alcoholic beverage Down Under. It was sold in a bottle similar to a whiskey bottle. The company used a catch-phrase: The drink you're having when you're not having a drink. And when I concluded that Defense in Australia was virtually non-existant, I was drawn to that catch phrase. In the post Vietnam era, Defense became a 'cop-out' for politicians reticent to spend money on it, not because there was no threat, but because it was 'too hard' and therefore banished to the realm of unreality. It struck me that this was what happened in 1941 when the nation found itself on the brink of a catastrophe during the Japanese invasion. In an attempt to draw contemporary similarities, I began to unearth decision making of such a crass nature that these were almost laughable were it not for the seriousness of the consequences.
