the Australia scenario would only be if they wanted to solidfy dominance within Asia and as a pre-cursor step towards owning Antartica I would assume.
but even then you'd have every western nation step in on behalf of Australia.
and America isn't really a feasible option unless you EMP it at the same time as you have like 500,000 ships storm the west coast with a 1 billion man army in wait with reinforcements and amazing gear and hardware.
it would be like 3000 d-day normandys all along the west coast lol..
NEITHER, if i'm China, I let them destory themselves?

China won't invade Australia any time soon. They are smart enough to realise that it is just cheaper to buy our resources than to try to occupy a continent by force. They may have millions of foot soldiers, but they still have to get them here across a lot of water. The logistics of food and drinking water alone make a ground attack totally unfeasable. If there ever comes a time when for political reasons Australia will no longer sell resources to China, then it might be different...
