If the current coronavirus crisis has taught Washington and Beijing anything, it's that even great powers can't lead if they're sick at home.

China can't lead because it doesn't have 12 aircraft carrier squadrons.

And they're sitting astride China's access to its friends and trading partners throughout Asia and Africa and Europe.

By the standard of international law (which I'd suggest is the one we should most respect) we're much worse than the Chinese.

And increasingly very blatant about it - the Ozzies facing the test of whether they will stop their own forces committing acts of terrorism - and failing to control them. (Long after the US and the UK has faced the same test and failed).

Labor backs Foreign Minister Marise Payne's call for a global inquiry to be held into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic and for the probe to be run independently of the World Health Organisation.

Just another unpleasant call for a pointless hate-fest. If we can't make a treaty on biological weapons (with compulsory inspections and potential shut-downs of labs and weapon programs) then there won't be any compliance.

From US lawyers to a German newspaper, Western calls for accountability on the part of the Chinese Communist Party are growing.

There will come a time when an alternative financial centre arises and it will no longer possible to blackmail nations like China.

The biggest obstacle is the fact that continental nations are necessarily at the throats of their neighbours and can't operate independently and freely the way we do.
