Paragraph 1.7 has been amended to read:1.7 Since 2000, we have seen the terrorist attacks on the United States in September 2001,followed by terrorist attacks across many parts of the world, including London, Madrid, Bali,Jakarta, and Mumbai. Australians were tragically killed and injured in many of theseattacks. We have seen the commitment of Australian forces to Afghanistan, Iraq and thewider Middle East region, as well as closer to home in East Timor, Aceh (in response to theIndian Ocean Tsunami), Papua New Guinea (for its humanitarian assistance needs), SolomonIslands and Tonga.Page 48
Paragraph 6.19 has been amended to read:6.19
In terms of military strategy, it means the ability to conduct independent militaryoperations in the defence of Australia by way of controlling the air and sea approaches toAustralia, and denying an adversary the ability to operate, without disruption, in ourimmediate neighbourhood, to the extent required to ensure the security of our territory andpeople. This approach is spelled out in greater detail in Chapter 7.
