Subject: How do Australians really feel about Carlo Kopp

Just want to know how you guys think of him and his agenda. Most Chinese (especially those from PRC) sources quote him and regard Sukhoi absolutely better than F-35.

I can think of any number of people in senior military positions who would be ecstatic that the chinese regard Kopp as an expert.
 
ditto for that amateur analyst ELP

He was prominant for a while because a few broadsheet and electronic journalists believed that he is a real expert and promoted him through their media outlets, but now that the Pigs have been retired, Super Hornets have been purchased, F-22's denied and F-35's ordered, he is no longer relevant even in the eyes of the lay public. I can't imagine that anybody in uniform ever took him seriously.

I heard he beats nuns and small children and he kills puppies! He's a VERY bad man...
 
A complete joke, but a VERY bad man nonetheless... 
 
In all seriousness I suspect that less than 1 in 5000 people would have ever heard of him, nor care less what he's got to say.

Fancy that. I wonder what they'd think if THEY had developed F-35 and we were flying Sukhois?
 
Very differently I'd suspect...

I guess so, but they will be the only ones.
 
If he'd written an article stating, 1,2,3,4,5,6 are going to be the lotto numbers next week, it'd be more credible than this garbage.
