Piss off with the American hero thing. The Japanese viewed the Americans as cowards as they wouldn't fight and would just hide. Australia saved
itself, and your country came in at the last minute in the Pacific and didn't do much besides the island campaigns.
Didnt do much......
Have you heard of Hiroshima?
Have you heard of Nagasaki?
And apparently he hadn't heard of Guadalcanal and the other battles of the Solomon Islands.
The Solomon Islands, over there on the map near Australia where the Japanese amassed to begin their invasion of Australia.
Just think, if it wasn't for our Marines, Australians would be eating Sushi right now.
Have you tried looking at some sources? The japanese had plans to invade Australia yes, however, were only going to do so if New Guinea was a
pushover. They underestimated the Australian troops in New Guinea and thus were defeated, that's why there was no invasion.
Japan, if succesful in New Guinea was going to invade Australia in three spots, a couple of KM's East of darwin, in between Townsville and Brisbane,
and just south of Sydney, that way, they could cut off the three important cities.
