Yup... No issues brewing between Australia and China....


Do you honestly think anyone cares about some hippy environmental thing from the days of Bob Hawke? And if I was Russia and China I would want at least some form of outpost in that area as well since our Government panders to the Americans and allows them to place bases and troops on our soil.

China and Russia have no need to attack us. Their beef is with you Im afraid.

To Americans Australians aren't friends. You are family.


If you are family then please leave the pacific and stop risking our economy and inviting an attack on our shores. Why put us in such a difficult situation? Your government could not care less about our future or best interests.

The marines being sent to Australia has little to do with China and a lot to do with North Korea.



Point is people appear to be going overly dramatic for some strange reason. 2,500 Marines against a 200 million man army... yeah... roughly comparable....

Australia could have said no, and can still tell the US to leave. I always enjoy it when people ignore the other side, laying total and complete blame on the US as if other countries have no other options.

Don't be fooled by the OP
His position seems to be anything in opposition to America, based what he thinks makes him and 'his' Australia look good.

It was they that used the thread about the marines, pretending their position was typical or popular when evidently, it never was. If you take the extreme 'whatever they are (Asian?)' from the general view there's nothing left. We all knew that it was a gesture and that things could heat up without a USA balance, but I haven't met a single person that shares his / their concerns, not one. Not even Chinese Australians.

I think China is a bit of a blow hard. I don't think America has been tarnished so bad because propaganda (and lies in general) don't last long. They are in it for a quick fix and they (not just China) can blow hard all day. The 1000's of ideas they set about making people believe.. all by themselves.. one by one.. vanishing...

Wish Americans weren't so Ameriancentric. Nothing is so black and white. A lot of things can happen despite who has the biggest ego's.

I am not the OP. everything else you said is wrong as well.

Water finds its own level too. I am not surprised you surround yourself with like minded people.

I am right here if you disagree with anything I have said. And what do you mean 'his' Australia look good.

And do you fear attack from China? Honestly? I dont believe it. Are your 'chinese australian' friends worried about China attacking us? Of course they are not. Unless they are paranoid.

So if there is no threat, why is the United States risking our economy?

Why are they putting us in such a difficult position for no good reason?

And Australians care about mines. It is why we are number 1 OECD nation. Mines. The mining millionaires / billionaires agree with me. The State of Western Australia agrees with me and so do the majority of Australians. Do not let your circle of friends fool you.

What was the first question Gillard was asked at the recent event where the politicians took questions from the public? A great question demanding an explaination from Gillard about why our Government is risking our economy and future by increasing militarization with the United states. The question got applause from the crowd. One of few questions to draw applause.

You are minority.

I find your outlook shallow and materialistic, is all. It's not impossible for you to be right but the way you get there is still wrong.

Nobody likes the current situation. Perhaps it's too much to ask, in case nobody ever liked their currant state of affairs, but here we are, and there you are, making use of the things people are uncomfortable with. If in case you are right, your demeanor betrays you. Looks like you are milking things for your own purposes.

Overall, you just take snipes at America. Apparently you're into peace, great, but you do it with an ideology that has never existed. There is no perfect moral code you can enforce against America and your opinions count only as much you can distort the truth with somewhat extreme examples and complications.. all set to sway the emotionally led masses.

I don't know if you are aware of this and if you are playing games. You sound serious..

I am sure that people from commonwealth nations are able to serve in the British Armed Forces. I never heard much about the British coming over here though.

These people are resistant to facts just read their histories.Both had their chance to describe the world without the US neither responded and one I personally invited.So based on their passed efforts all they do is jab at the USA. there are about five guys doing this they have some sort of convoluted logic that the US IS the NWO.

I don't get why it is really needed tho, I'd imagine if war was to come, and Australia had to fight a nation. New Zealand and Australia would be allies in a matter?
I also don't see Australia needing an army, I don't get who would attack them. They're remained a passive nation, I'm sure we've all seen the "End of the World" flash video that has Australia going "wtf?" at the bottom of the globe.


We are good allies with the kiwis that's why we are ANZACs Australian New Zealand Army Core, NZ doesn't even have an Air force anymore cause it's not worth having one you have to get through the Aussies first & if that happens their up the creek anyway.
As for who would attack us for starters 350million Indonesians who are staring at 23million of us over a hungry dinner plate & can get here in a row boat, followed by china who will want to waste Pine Gap and our radar arrays to screw up you yanks not to mention Cocos Islands once you set up your drone base there, after that anybody who is hungry.
250K is like 5 years grunt pay I doubt they are handing this out to any old wanna be Rambo, I would think that level of compo would be for specialists with families.
As to why we need them there can't be to many options either war or to control us civvies. There is no way Ozzy soldiers would attack us so I suppose they need some of these guys and some US Marines for that job although I pity them if they are dumb enough to accept those orders, we might not be viewed as much by the world but we hold are own & then some, add to that they would be pissing in our pool = not good for them.

I would not count out the possibility that it's Australia they hate, not America and or, they covet Australia's resources on racial grounds. We get a lot of that. The same people think nothing of creating 100's of accounts and try to hold conversation with this wide range of people - all of them themselves, then there are bots... It's not that bad, I know.

I think the most plausible excuse is that they hate themselves and need to hide behind issues. If I'm right the anti-American accusations would fit their own personalities.

On thing is for sure. I can tell you with no doubt at all that I'm as serious as most Australians get. If you catch onto someone being as serious as these guys, assume they are outcasts of some kind.

I have trouble with the flow of what you are trying to say. I will do my best to decipher. Not materialistic in any way btw, being socialist/minimalist.

I do not need an idealogy that has existed. Chomsky is not more intelligent than I am. Marx is not more intelligent than I am. I think for myself. Right now I am interested in hybrids. National Socailism and State Capitalism. a hybrid is the best system we have known but I am sure I can make improvments.

"No perfect moral code to enforce on america" Deciphering.......are you saying you think America is above the law like they think they are? What we can do with them is elect someone that is not a CIA puppet that will politely ask America to leave and stop risking our future. This would be quite reasonable. What China can and is doing is unseating the US Dollar as the Reserve Currency. the Reserve is what gives them so much power. look into it.

And please tell me exactly, specifically what "truth" i "distort". Just because you are not as informed or well read as I am does not mean I distort truth. I am very interested in what you accuse me of distorting.

And of course I am serious. I am socialist. I am anti-Imperialism. Of course I have a problem with the US government.

And the emotional masses need to stop being blind passive ignorant idiots. That is why I am here. If I scare americans then good. They should be scared. If they acknowledge their ever growing massive problems then they can start to fix them cant they? Instead of being the passive defeatist lobotomized capitalist lemmings that they are for the most part right now.

We need them to fix their country or stand down.

I say that you are materialist in the same way that you are shallow and not at all deep. I didn't just pick these words out of a box. I mean materialist in the deeper sense - that you only accept what you see, touch and feel. (Not necessarily a Madonna "material..." sort of thing).

You take the position of an extreme ideologist. The morality you chose to lay against is the USA extreme. People constantly point out where your bias is unfair, yet you never seem to realize what they mean.

I don't really know if you are playing devils advocate because you should be, as you are deliberately polarized to one side as it is.

"No perfect moral code to enforce on America"... I used the word "perfect" deliberately. Such a thing, requires extreme ideology (a firm concept of perfection), which if you want to argue that your stance against America is morally justified, you'd have to produce. Of course, you can't and neither can you claim the high moral ground.

I understand the political situation that you endorse. It is also shallow and materialistic.

You have the tall poppy syndrome, on steroids.. Someone above called it jealousy. He's about right. You certainly are unable to see the world from American eyes, or even empathize. Perhaps all there is about you is insecure intimidation.

You sound like Jap arguing that anyone who is against whaling is racist. If you could speak intelligently, then you would. That said, I see now that you are playing devils advocate. Have fun.

Not all that deep.

Do you know me? There are some chicks I know that could tell you how deep I go. I am also well read, articulate and I think deeper than any human that I know. I am more intelligent than most people I come across too.


If you could speak intelligently,

Ha! You do not strike me as an intellectual giant. I am sure my IQ would dwarf yours.

Now Im catching on. You are just parroting some stuff because you have seen person that cant debate with me resort to calling me anti-american or some nonsense. You obviously do not think for yourself so you thought it would be safe to agree.

I missed someone calling me jealous. I hate that. What exactly am I jealous of? I live in the best country in the world. I am good looking. Awesome with chicks. Intelligent. Well read. I have it all covered. I think you are jealous of my confidence.

And again, I am not anti-american. Its such a lie. I wantt them to fix things. I think OWS is great. I like their Socialist Party.

You are an american propaganda fed unAustralian minority.

Wotcha mate, how's it going?


Seems a sensible move on the one hand. I have to say though, isn't that a huge amount of cash for what are, in effect, squaddies? Or is this deeper than that - say, recruitment aimed at Special Forces soldiers? That may then make more sense regarding the cash outlay.......

Nothing to do with the Queen.

It's a common misconception that she's important to the British empire, she's pretty much a tourist attraction.

The whole royal family thing is pointless.

Hey Droog,

i thought it was a bit. I dont see why we cant train our own guys. seems there is a sense of urgency maybe.

Its a massive waste of taxpayer money thats for sure.

Thats the thing, if it is Special Forces then you are actually saving yourselves a huge amount of cash with each soldier recruited. UK / Australia / New Zealand use SAS forces - training, if not exactly the same, is extremely similar (hence all the missions they undertake together, complete with interchanging). In the UK in the early 1990's it cost just over £1 million per Special Forces soldier training. I imagine, therefore, this is similar "down under". That saving could be passed onto better shark nets for the tourist beaches!
