BMI View: Australia faces little serious security threats that would be defined as 'major'. However, in the past months the revelation that ISIS has told its insurgents to stay in Australia has lead to a feeling of panic and worry amongst the populace. This is most likely to be in retaliation for the dawn terror raids performed by New South Wales (NSW) and federal police on September 18 2014. Undeterred by this Australia will play a peacekeeping role and aid in military objectives in the Middle East. This will continue to fuel arms procurements from both the US and domestic companies.

On Thursday, October 9 2014, it was confirmed that Australia had performed its first air strike on ISIS targets and in just under a month (November 4) they has performed a total of 14 air strikes. This is likely to continue into 2015 with support from US and NATO with the potential for ground troops and combat operations to take place. A small number of Australian Special Forces have also been deployed in an advisory role however; there have been unconfirmed rumours that they may perform covert operations in the area. The timing of the crisis has been beneficial to Tony Abbott's plan of steadily increasing defence expenditure to up to 2% GDP.
