      The $24bn fighting fund


      By ROBERT GARRAN, Defence
      writer
      07dec00

      JOHN Howard has pledged a
      new commando force and a $2
      billion investment on
      information warfare as part of a
      boost to army numbers and
      firepower to tackle a "sea of
      regional instability" in
      Australia's neighbourhood.

      The Government's white paper gives the force a 10-year $24
      billion
      increase in spending to overcome its budget crisis,
      bolster its ability
      to defend Australia and boost the army's role in the
      immediate
      region.

      The new spending on information warfare will provide
      better
      surveillance of Australia's northern approaches and boost
      intelligence
      and communications. The army commando force will be
      substantially
      strengthened from 200 to 800 soldiers.
