AUKUS is currently selling “more heat than light” to the US

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Elbridge Colby says the AKUS deal is “more heat than light” for the US because the US system is not designed to work with allies to create technology and munitions.

“The American system is not designed to facilitate really close collaboration with a critical technology or munitions ally like Australia,” Mr. Colby told Sky News anchor Erin Molan.
