Where should Australia invest in defence?

This 'Reader Riposte' by Alan Wrigley in The Interpreter struck me as somehow - I'm not sure how - important:
Are we to repeat this approach now that the unrewarding Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns — essentially political deployments — are pretty much behind us? The most relevant deployment in the past period was that to East Timor, yet when it came to action we lacked much of the logistical capacity needed, while a lot of other military matériel lay around.
