I do hope that China doesn't try to embargo Oz though, especially by sea, that would be pretty sick.

Yes, right on...
That use to be our advantage, we are Soooo far away from everybody, and a large desolate Island, Who would or could invade us?
Of course, as you said, that can also be a disadvantage....easy to isolate/embargo, kill the shipping lanes.
Once upon a time, we use to make everything ourselves......now we virtually make nothing, and import everything.....From China!!!!
(well not everything you know...we like German cars....made in South Africa.........)
It would be far easier and cheaper for China to just offer every "European" Australian One Million dollars US, to sell up, and leave the country, and basically give it to the Chinese........War can be expensive......this would be cheaper for them.
I'd be in that.....buy a small villa in Spain or Italy......drive the Autostradas and Autobahns....Yeah!!!
Funny tho, they have already invaded......in my once white bread suburb, I swear, every time I go to the local shops, I see more new Chinese faces in the crowd all around
Sounds like pretty serious business to me and I hope the Chinese lay off soon.
