Australia with a population about the same size of a large US city doesn’t have the benefit of the money and the resources the US has, we don’t have such great trade with the US either.



The largest US city isn't even half the population of Australia. So perhaps saying Australia has about the same population as say Florida, would be a far more accurate comparison.

But to the OP, its just mindbogglingly idiotic to assert that Australia would side with China over the US if it came to military conflict... so I'm just going to assume that you have more sense than that and are just trolling.


Please, i never said Australia would side with China but rather that Australia could and should do more, furthermore saying i smelled a turncoat is about Australias partial support instead of unconditional support, this partial support may be satisfactory in peaceful happy days but when push (and theres plenty of pushin) comes to shove partiality just won't cut it.
Remember greed and the dollar - 99% of the time in human nature always disgustingly trumps the right thing, humanity has a complete history of this fact.

Remember one thing - Australias strategic global position is very desirable to northen countries in the event of the worst case scenario.

Money talks bull$#!+ walks. Another proven fact of humanities history. It would be " mindbogglingly idiotic" to ignore this trait.

What are you suggesting here exactly?

It looks like from your op you expect Australia to join the U.S in a trade war with China , that's a bad proposition for our already struggling economy and this us verses them mentality is destructive for a global economy.

If your economy is struggling so much, why is your prime minister giving $150 MILLION to NASA??????? How many homless or similiar could benefit from that kind of $.

"Global economy" ??????? No such thing in reality.

If you want to see a real "us versus them mentality" look anywhere at all, hell just look at politicians, or even worse just look at statistics on neighbors behavior towards each other in same neighborhoods let alone opposing countries.

Australia would join and fight with the US no matter what. Now Australia, as a lot have said, does major trading with China and others. The economy is sluggish and there would be no way Australia could join a trade war against China and survive economically. Living here in Australia for 7 years now I can say without a doubt if you were to say that kind of stuff down at the pub you would have been eating floor.

Aussies have the right to pick sides or be neutral. Technically US is suppose to freaking ally China not go against each other after WW2. Everyone would be so freaking happy. The rich corrupt and people with multiple agendas attempting to take over the world are using America/fake democracy. This is why everyone hates America now. Don't trade with China your screwed. No defence tech from America equally screwed. Only if the media stops fking lying and MIC gets shutdown by real American civilians maybe things will start changing. Japan is just a big excuse to go to war with China since Sino-Jap war. You can't drop one or the other. China knows what its doing with civilian sector. US is only going for military sector and completely abandoned public laws. Corrupt as hell.
