Its just business, it was with you guys as well remember. You dont have the coin we need so we dont lift our skirt to you any more.
Its global evolution and we are evolving. Hell we are more part of Asia than the the Americas or Europe anyway.
The sad part of this whole dance is the US government because of the people have mostly operated out of a moral sensitivity and the Chinese out of a
moral vacuum. Chinas machine runs the people, where once the US people ran the machine that has changed to the machine running the people in the US
now as well.
Its not really a change of systems, just eye shape and skin colour. (Being an Aussie I can spell colour with a U if I wish).
I wonder what the Chinese symbol is for colour?
Australia is not a State of the US, I just wish WA was not a state of Australia as well.
Propaganda aside, long term Australia and China's interests will gradually become closer. America too isn't a strong partner yet, and in all
reality, at this stage Australia is strategically important, AND above all, Australia doesn't talk as loud so where we stand goes unnoticed by the
The internet confuses people, especially in Australia's outspoken, intolerable ways, that are merely based on our lack of political strength. Again
and again, Australia doesn't get heard, and look here how China and USA fight over Australia like dog meat, if they can. Things get reduced to
trolling, so fast.
That said, currently USA are being very kind and have left us to our devices from the start. The UK isn't being mentioned, funny that.. and China
hasn't been bad to Australia at all, so a retired general doesn't mater that much, however culturally we will clash with China who refuse to play
hardball, calling for decorum when they play two games at once, one behind the shadows; are caught and must be treated in kind = our way.
Aus is unlike USA and China and robust enough to play it our way.
In the long run a lot of things may happen and most of them won't...
USA is indeed menacing Australia's fiscal survival with the risks they take, on the horizon. It's not a big deal.
China would find it easy to attack white people, as would India Japan etc. They are still propped up with propaganda. In their respective culture they
assume victory and then do as they please. Beware.
Europe still makes the most long term sense, to me. USA won't go too far backward and share similar interests. Something in Australia has to change
for us to go forward. For a start we need a voice of our own.
China isn't wrong, as usual. Australia is hampered with having a dependency on America, but it just may be China that creates the threat.
Sounds allegorical for that thing we have on our flag that has been mentioned by Asia as an incursion so many 1000's of times the past 30 years.
Australia becoming a republic would be the game changer, to me. Otherwise, nothing will happen despite everything anyone says.
