Australian Official Warns Country to Brace for ‘Curse of War’ as Tension Grows With China

A senior Australian security official warned staff members that the country should brace for the “curse of war” as tensions grow with China, causing other government officials to be wary of such strong language.

“In a world of perpetual tension and dread, the drums of war beat—sometimes faintly and distantly, and at other times more loudly and ever closer,” Department of Home Affairs Secretary Mike Pezzullo said in a message to staff that was shared with Australian media on Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

“Today, as free nations again hear the beating drums and watch worryingly the militarisation of issues that we had, until recent years, thought unlikely to be catalysts for war, let us continue to search unceasingly for the chance for peace while bracing again, yet again, for the curse of war,” Pezzullo added.
