WW2 is a perfect example of why we do need a military. The japanese bombed Darwin and sent Submarines into Sydney harbour also. Somehow we fixed those
pricks up but lets say the Chinese were to attack, even with our army and no assistance we are a sitting duck.
We have nothing to fear. China like us. They do not want to waste energy and resources on dealing with us if they do not have to. Diplomacy. We have
so much to offer by way of diplomacy.
And Japan was never going to invade us because they knew that it was impossible and a waste of resources. Their strategy was containment all along.
It is obvious that we could remain neutral as far as China is concerned. But how would America treat us if we told them that we did not want to get
mixed up in their mess? They would not allow it.
If an Australian Leader speaks out against the United States, they end up like Harold Holt. I do not think Gillard wants to be murdered by the CIA. We
are being forced into this situatiion by the Americans. The American Government does not care in the slightest about the best interests of Australia
If we do not do what the United States Governments orders, our country will lose its international standing within Americas Imperial Empire and that
will hurt us ( it would have in the past since WW2 anyway. ). Our Government needs to show some sense and have some backbone and stand up to the
Americans. The Empire is almost dead. We must jump ship before its all too late. We have a bright bright future as allies of China. If we stick with
the United States, we are doomed.
