Had not heard about Aegis Ashore in Japan being canceled.  That's interesting.

Seriously though....trump drop his pants and Gyna has started running roughshod over the entire region.

NK and the cancellation of military exercises was STOOOOOOPID
Trade war - STOOOOOOOOPID
Gyna canceled all order in the US for Pork, Soybeans, cotton and corn just 5 weeks ago.

Trump fked this up.

If there is any country that can turn Chinese into sex slaves, it's a bigger Japanese army.

And again another Al Jazeera article fapping to the idea of America's demise.

/can America just like Qatar get steamrolled by any one of its neighbors that is chomping at the bit to do so?
//And besides Saudi Arabia, they're all less fundamentalist than Qatar

They should be doing that regardless of what the US decides to do. It isn't healthy to fully depend on others for your defense.

As US power is destroyed thanks to the GOP treasonous bullshiat, it will be everyone for himself and shiat will get more and more chaotic.

The chances of war is increasing by the day.

If Trump doesnt lose, its almost guarantee we'll have a big ass war within the next 5 years.

Ya know, The Chinese Communist Party has to make sure that the memories of atrocities of 75 years ago stay fresh, because they commit so many new ones now, without a viable war opponent, that it'd be awkward to not have some kind of distraction.

So China would invade two first world countries? I.mean I know they got a lot of people but....?

Is that still a thing? I mean I know about the evil oil wars, access, but in this day and age folks are still fantasizing about invading and conquering countries? China already got Hong Kong! What are they  gonna do, turn Australia into a tourist attraction?

Headline: "As the U.S. alliance fades..." (I think)
TFA: "Australia is a key partner in the region for the US and cooperation between the two countries remains central to Australia's new strategic thinking," with a laundry list of ongoing cooperative projects, including the photo at the top.


Ooooo, "Scary!"

Loss of trust in the US isn't nearly enough
Every nation on earth should fear us and actively be working together to do something about the growing threat of a new Nazi regime

At the bare minimum, a nation of willfully ignorant, racist and nationalistic morons with this much firepower is something that needs to be addressed as the serious threat it is and not trusted one bit

Australian Defense Plan (CLASSIFIED TOP SECRET)

1.) take everything that can kill you in Australia
2.) place it inside enemy country
3.) let nature handle it
4.) crack open the Fosters and Vegemite

Yeah, but al things crumble when you've got politicians saying "but we have no enemies at the moment so we don't really need a military".

This is true, we run our country like we run our IT systems, security through obscurity.

We just bank on the idea that other countries use the board from the game Risk for strategic planning.

Lets not forget when the Dutch burnt the English fleet while it was at anchor in the Thames.
Because the English has so farked their budget, they couldn't afford rope, sail, powder or rum that year. Officers of course had private stashes of brandy, so DTs were averted by the admiralty.

Dear China,

You are a skillful and clever lot, but please remember -- the Japan Sex Robot industry is perfecting its techniques and a mechanized being that can actually deliver a Cleveland Steamer is in sight.  And after the vigor of your military has thereby been sapped, Australia has a spider that can bite through the toe of a boot.  A spider. That laughs at human boot technology.  And highly venomous snakes that chase people for fun. You have an abundance of weapons and manpower.  They have freaky robots that don't recognize 'safe' words and spiders that live to bite boots and Usain Bolt snakes. Be warned.

Hachitori: Good. Why should we pay for their defense?


You don't.

What are agreements mostly do is stop Australia, Japan and lots of others from being forced to develop a nuclear capability.  Working together works best for everyone, we mostly buy US military hardware so that our forces can be easily integrated.

China can be starved out in a very short time if its food, energy and raw material supply were to be cut off.  Simply stop selling them raw materials and blockade their sea lanes and supply routes.
