Thewriter of the article posits a war between Australia and china. I think Australia wouldlose
China would use a landhopping strategy
Chinapushes south and annexes laos,Thailand,and Malaysia。。。。
So China wants tostart a world war.
China will never be in a war with Australia alone it would be war with Europe andthe USAas well. The Australia,and United States Security Treaty (ANZUS Treaty), 1951 Right now it could beargued that the most lethal fighting machine of all time
Remember the PLA is , it is a “party army,”the armed wing of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Indeed, all careerofficers in the PLA are members of the CCP and all units at the company leveland above have political officers assigned to enforce party control. Likewise,all important decisions in the PLA are made by Communist Party committees thatare dominated by political officers, not by operators.
In a recent report by the RAND Corporationtitled “China’s IncompleteMilitary Modernization” the authors have some serious doubts when it comes to Beijing’s jointwarfighting capabilities:
China has a great track record of,well, permanently “borrowing” the designs of many of the world’s best combatsystems. However, one can only gain so much by playing copy cat. Even a copyneeds to be reverse engineered— and sometimes that isn’t easy. A poor copywould do Chinano good on the battlefield.
The USis 10,000 miles away from Asia.
Europe is 5,000 miles away from Asia.
The USlost badly in Vietnam.Australia is just a littlefurther south than Vietnam.
Chinawill win a war against Australia(even with US and European help) easily by using the land-hopping strategy.
Ask yourself a simple question. Why doesn'tthe US and Europe try tofree Crimea or Eastern Ukraine?
The reason is that the Russians will win anyland war in the Crimea or Eastern Ukraine.
Similarly, who will win a land war on Australia'sdoorstep with present-day Indonesian Java? Put a few million PLA troops andequipment on Java and Chinawill steamroll Australia.

When youdo that land hopping, what do you think India will do? don't you know that India and Vietnam have a strategicpartnership?
Give me abreak.
Indiaand Vietnamare a complete joke militarily.
China has stealth fighters. Youguys don't.
China has thermonuclear weapons.You guys don't.
China builds its own militaryequipment. You guys have to beg other nations to buy their equipment.
It's hilarious that you think India and Vietnam are even worth mentioning.
