"Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber alles...." Oh wait, you don't know that tune? You know why?


because we busted our ass all through the first half of the war grinding the Germans down,doing all the hard work with the UK. thats why your not singing it either. where was America....oh thats right at home sipping wine on the porch while we were slugging it out, weak cowards. then came in at the end, pathetic.



LOL, keep listening to Eddie Izzard and your other tranny comedians for your history. We laugh at the fail.
.

lol, i guess your state education system in America must teach you some pretty distorted propaganda versions of what happened, but hey maybe thats why America creates TV shows like south pacific and doesnt even place Australia in it when in reality America was to scared to take the jungle combat role.
You know the Japs would laugh at americans hiding in the dugouts on the beaches in the pacific and have respect for us attacking their positions.


Oh really? Was that the same Australian army that got their butts handed to them until America came in and ended everything by taking all of the Asian islands back from your back door until the war was over? AND managed to advance technology while they were at it? What were the inventions that Australia created as a response to WW2? Oh yeah: NOTHING. Nothing *useful*. Better wool socks?


"Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong..."

Yeah, not the same ring.

It was US General McArthur, the anointed one, yea, that guy, who took one look at the Kokoda Trail, pooped himself and said not possible.

The Aussies looked at the same Kokoda trail and said, "Let's ava go mates!" and took it from the Japanese. Perhaps you should look at Australian Military History. Find out who were the only units not to retreat in the opening hours of the Battle of the Bulge and in fact saved everyone's backsides while Patton did his snow storm trick. (That was tops). Yes you here about the 82nd Airborne (and so you should, magnificent stand!) but you don't hear about what we did.

You also have not a single clue about what we heroically did in WW2, Korea or Vietnam. That is just because you can't be bothered. But yes, you can sling mud!

P


And bye the way, while the US sat out the opening years of WW2 the Aussies were in the thick of it right from the beginning. We were not even in the Pacific, so we could not of had out butts handed to us.

ATS is good. If people are at ATS then they must care.

You know what is really fun is reading articles from The Wall Street Journal and Forbes. They are soo scared of the BRICS. They call them the "so called BRICS". Arent they the ones that thought up the clever term? Wasnt long ago I was reading how Jim ONeil was talking like he is responsible for the gains of the BRICS because he coined the term and grouped them into some kind of forex scam.

The so-called free market capitalists are awake at night worrying about the BRICS. Or BRIIICS I should say. And now BRIIICS includes one of the MIST nations. A boon. I hope that it will soon include Australia and New Zealand making BRIIICSANZ. Who could stop the power of BRIIICSANZ? There must be nations lining up to join the new alternate alliance.

I'm curious: Was this deal struck on March 29th of this year, or March 29th 2012?

OMG, yes, the Kokoda Trail, that one that single-handedly stopped Hitler and Japan from advancing on the whole world! The one that everyone mentions, you know, after Normandy and Berlin and all of that.

Sure.

Did you know that Australia was doing just fine at keeping the Japanese at bay? Did you also know that Australia actually island hopped with the USA?

The truth is, that the USA soldiers were so undertrained that taking them out bush was a burden. The soldiers were that undertrained that they could not fight effectively in bushland...at all. That is why they just stayed on base for the majority of the time, only coming in to help fight the Japanese at the end.

They let the Aussies do all the hard work, and then they came in to take all the glory. Douglas MacArthur was instrumental in the marginalisation and silencing of Australia's efforts. He was not a help at all.

The only thing that we could thank the USA for is the battle of the Coral Sea. Nothing more, nothing less.

Ah, yes, all of the American weakness. That which the Australian populace comforts itself with at night and pulls over their heads, while it exposes their feet. Bless your heart.

Your attempts at downplaying Australia's engagements and history is amusing at best.

The Kokoda Track/Trail was instrumental in keeping the Japanese at bay...in fact, it was crucial in the whole push against the Japanese all the way back up Asia and the Pacific.

It was indeed an important engagement for Australians, as if New Guinea were to be taken, Australia would have been directly, and greatly threatened. In fact, according to documents and Japanese military individuals; if they had taken New Guinea, they would have organised an invasion of Australia...

Let us not forget the US / British attitude to the Defense of Australian. Let the Japanese have it, we can always take it back later.

Thanks, but no thanks!

mates?
c'mon now what fair dinkum aussie would use mates in that context? How embarrasing

I don't often agree with dark n stormy but in this case I must.

If we lose america as a close friend then we lose the security of their protection. And don'tgive me "we don't need it" or "we're strong enough on our own" bs, we have the largest gaggle of muzzies in the world close enough to bloody well swim over here and china with its new navy just a short cruise away. And now the little fat man with the funny uniform pretending to be all grown up and boss of the local sandbox.

Wake up!

But back to my first point, you're really not an aussie are you.

Actually Mcarthur had command over a minority of the pacific theatre for the US. The left overs for his US army in the pacific small fry compared to the main campaign under the US navy in the pacific ww2.
It was the US navy under Nimitz that had command over the main front in the pacific theatre and thus did the lions share of the pacific campaign e.g. island hoping with US marines no Australian AIF or CMF troops were under Nimitz command. All Australians were under Mcarthur command and by 43 and beyond were doing nothing important but mopping up backwaters like west papua and borneo this made no difference to anything.
I am stating all this as an aussie poster but facts must be fair i and believe i know modern history well including military.

As for no american influence in Aus i will believe it when the likes of, big bang theory, seinfeld, sex & the city,pimp my ride,Two & a half men etc...etc.. all other such trash media that foxtel promote have no following or influence here among gen Ys especially.
Point is even if we dont need the USD or american business we do need their culture and have a love affair with it plus Aus still needs the US military industrial complex. Dont forget obamas trip down here last year the speech he made in parliament regarding the Aus alliance with the US

And the rest of the world cared.......why? Oh yeah, so you wouldn't be part of pushing "Deutschland, Deutschalnd, Uber alles" on the rest of us.

Good defense.

Ah yes, that technology which powers half of the world now. Yes, degaussing, that which throttled the world into the 21st century.

I just thought I'd mention that not all Americans are unaware of Australia's contributions in places like Vietnam. The Aussie bush pilots had a bit of a legend built for themselves. It seems they rarely, if ever, met a place they wouldn't drop or fly into, to get Americans out. Damn any lines on the map or pesky ground fire. A good number of Americans owe their getting home to those pilots.

It does sound like global demand for the USD is on the decline, so watch out for an increase in inflation pressure. In the short term the stock market will soak up a lot of this extra capital so things will still look good on the surface, but how this translates to the standard of living on main street is where the true measure is at.

I have no idea how much the US will lose and other nations save as the middleman is taken out of currency exchanges. A single national currency will never work as a global standard, just to many conflicts of interest and points of abuse.
