OK now I have just been wondering to myself about how things would play out in the event of east vs west, or russia/china vs US, etc war.
There are generally 2 opinions on australia's path to survival - the most common is that the US will protect us, and then the other is that we will
fold to china/asia when the pressure arrives.
The question I have to ask myself though is... Will america really commit the necessary resources to protect australia? and would china even give us
the option of folding? It would not be difficult to take us in a military sense, although organised resistance might be possible due to the size of
country and low population density.
Should the US become involved in war with china, I do not believe australia will be ignored. In fact I'm starting to think if war with the US
happened a very beneficial side effect for china would be that we would instantly be pulled into it, and therefore setup as an enemy of china. They
could take Australia regardless of whether an engagement with america lasted into the true 'war' age, or was just a short-term political
So I'm wondering what are your thoughts on this.. not on what america SHOULD do, or what australia SHOULD do, but what the actual outcomes would be,
given the pressures and costs, etc. Would the US put the full might of it's force behind australia? (Perhaps using the movement to sign off the
one-sided trade deal to end all trade-deals?) Would we be ignored by the US and taken instantly by China? Would we be ignored by China? (I'm
I suppose the fear of china gaining the resources/space here might be enough to motivate the US, but if they're fighting on their own front as well,
I'm far from a master strategist, I'm sure I'm missing some key points.. would love to hear thoughts though.
