    Stopping China from blocking the South China Sea?

    British forces surrendered in Singapore.

    Battle of The Coral Sea. WW2.
    Many US Navy sailors and pilots gave their lives. Stopped the Japanese navy.

    Japanese bombers carried out 64 raids on Australia over 18 months.
    Eventually US planes ruled our skies instead.
    We were saved.
    Now departed mummy dearest and her ilk were rejoicing when they discovered that the planes overhead were American and not Japanese...and that they were not going to be captured and turned into sex slaves etc.

    Today:
    US drones spying on and taking out terrorists overseas are guided from our outback.
    US, part of the Five Eyes intelligence network.
    Trump, Commander in Chief of the big guns, big missiles, big ships, big planes.
    We need America.

    US marines rotating thru Darwin.
    More US bases are to be built in Australia...oh happy days.
    US military personnel march in our
    Anzac Day parades.
    This is all bullshit. You're living the past. America's military strength doesn't intimidate any country that has nuclear weapons. Trump was ready to wipe North Korea " off the map" if Kim Jung continued firing ballistic missiles and stockpiling nuclear weapons. After the threats, then the bullshit PR talks Trump had with Kim Jung......what was the result? North Korea has fired numerous test ballistic missiles since....and they are stockpiling nuclear weapons more than before. Start a war with Nth Korea and you can at least say goodbye to Sth Korea,Japan and neighbouring countries- and risk China getting involved. Its catastrophic

    Then you got Iran. Trump orders the death of one of their generals ( a nice diversion to his impeachment) and what does Iran do? They strike back and fire into a US military camp in Iraq- killing 2 US marines, 1 British soldier and injuring 12. Trumps reply to that?? Nil.....of course. Irans nuclear weapons are immense and they are aimed right at Israel. What was the outcome? Hezbollah in Lebanon reaffirms that it's ready to join Iran in any strike on US interests.

    Reasons for all the unrest in that part the world? Decades of the US meddling in the Middle East....and Iraq invasion was the turning point. Any country who felt threatened by the US was never going to standby and be a sitting duck for the US like Iraq was. Lucky for those countries Russia and China are very willing to supply them nuclear materials and intelligence- they too don't want the US getting stronger by waltzing in and out of countries like its their right.

    Economically what does the US mean for Australia? Check for yourself the importance of Asia for Australian exporters compared to the US.

    Australia is best served by taking a NZ approach to world affairs. Lets look after ourselves and let the USA do whatever they want and stop tagging along like a useless lap dog.

      Great post but an unfortunate waste of time as it will be lost on the fanboys. The game show host will be re-elected as the american public a little more than single celled organisms and believe anything as long as its wrapped in a flag.

      Chook.

          The NSW cops are going a bit softer here, or more common sense now.
          It was actually Victoria Jack. Up in my home state of Queensland, in particular my home town of Warwick, they were too busy shooting one another over the weekend and getting into fights in the local shopping centre. It's not the virus up there that is killing people, it's people. I am so glad my parents are not alive to see this up there. They went through enough in WWII and so did many many others. The NSW police have come out and said that family members teaching others to drive is a valid reason to leave home. What if this young girl was required to drive another family member in an emergency? Surely it makes sense to teach her to drive when there is not much traffic around anyway. I was always a nervous driver even in country Queensland and have not driven a car since 1989 but for some families having more than one driver in the family may just assist in an emergency.

            US finally got sick of Saddam...got sick of carting its military across the world every time he taunted them by massing his military on one of Iraq's borders.

              The last war that wasn't started by the U.S. because of Domino Theory was World War II. And the Pacific theatre was at least partly due to the U.S. blocking Japan's trading routes in the South Pacific.

              And Donald Trump is not the disease, he's just a symptom. Like diarrhoea when you get Norovirus.

                Look after ourselves?
                Surely you jest.
                Our enemies are all nuke-armed. We have "nothing" in comparison. US has subs cruising the world that can turn Shanghai and Beijing into ash at a moment's notice. We need America.
                ANZUS Alliance, our only hope.
                911, John Howard invoked ANZUS and we sent troops to Afghanistan to get bin Laden and AQ. NY was burning, if we want America to come to our aid, we must go to its.

                America's military might does intimidate, intimidates anyone from attacking us.

                Asia is important to us, but so is America...vitally important. Cheering for America's demise is a very bad idea.

                Aug 13, 2017 - US investment in Australia is currently A$860 billion: That's A$345 billion more than the next largest investor, the United Kingdom.

                            Ugh. It does sound like something that would come out of Queensland though..folks are dumb where I come from and all that...My Dad used to say "Bloody Victorians! They are a law unto themselves...!"

                              Im not cheering for America's demise i'm just giving you the facts.....and that is the USA don't mess around with countries that have nuclear warheads. Do you think North Korea or Iran would have stood up to the US in the pre nuclear weapon days?

                              Yes John Howard took us into Afghanistan & Iraq.....what a massive waste of human life that to this day still is. The US military went into Afghanistan to dismantle al-Qaeda and deny it a safe base of operations by removing the Taliban from power. As of today the Taliban still control most of Afghanistan and forces loyal to al-Qaeda and its affiliates now number in the tens of thousands . Men in caves 1- USA 0

                              As for Iraq and the search for weapons of mass production....we all know of the farce that was and the damage it caused and is still causing today.

                              Heres some figures on Australia's export and import partners......enjoy
