How do you mean strike fear.

Both navies have a job to do. Hellenic Navy has its job to do, and I bet they do strike fear in the hearts to any Turkish Admiral of the Turkish navy. I put my house on it.

The Australian Navy (RAN) has its job to do, which is different to Greece. Our objectives revolve around protecting our sea approaches, resources, interoperability with the Americans, japanese, French and Brits and other NATO Navies.

Our other objectives are more about Black Ops (torpedoeing SAS soldiers or our Clearance Divers from the tubes), hence our massive Submarine Fleet - expanding from 6 Collins to 12 French Barricuda at $55 Billion. that's the biggest defence contract on the planet of any country, till Trump ammounced the construction of 10 new US Aircraft Carriers. It's now the second biggest.

Although, Australia is about to sign a contract to build 24, yes 24 new Stealth Frigates. Estimated to be worth more than 120 Billion.. 20 for Australia, and 4 for New Zealand. Thousands of jobs in Adelaide.

So they are expanding the Frigate fleet from 8 to 20 as well. And they will all be AEGIS equiped - capable of simultaneously tracking and engaging 1000 hostile threats at the same time.

The Air Warfare Destroyers have been commissioned already.

So we are extremely happy with our Navy. And I bet you every Chinese Admiral will have fear in the heart about the barricuda subs, or the AWD or new Frigates. These are top shelf ships. Not many countries have that tech available to them.

What has developed to unprecedented levels is the Australian and French alliance. It’s taken on a whole new dimension.

Our Navy will have more military exercises with the French and there has been a massive transfer of knowledge and tech.

I think the geopolitical force here is the French Pacific Island Territories. I believe the Australian Defence Forces will be very active in patrolling French territorial seas, and their EEZ on behalf of France. The French concerns are wrt to China.

The French will also increase their naval presence in the pacific. There are even rumours of a French Military Base in Australia. So we might have the French down here. Great thing!

Macron and Morrison are very close at this point. And there has been a concerted push by France to include Australia as a full member of NATO. They were instrumental in Australia getting associate membership but the French want Australua to have a voting right as well.

And there has been a massive tilt towards French equipment as well. Not just with our new subs, but also our new Frigates.

Although the Australian boats are heavily bastardised with American sensors and weapons.

Asia Pacific militarisation against Chy-na!

Long may this cooperation continue indefinitely.

The kind of fear that caused the 130,000 British and Australian soldiers surrender to the 30,000 Japanese soldiers.

Perhaps it is the shine on their scimitar that did it.

You mean the fall of Singapore.

There were not many Australians there, as most had already pulled back - 450,000 Australian and American troops were mobilized for the defence of Australia which at the time they believed an invasion of Australia was inevitable.

That is when the Brisbane Line was drawn up, and still applies to this day.

The Australians were more active in Papua New Guinea, and Coral Sea.

BTW, there were only 80,000 allied troops in Singapore. And no, about half of them got out. And probably only about 20,000 were Australian.

But Australia's ZED Force was there. When their ships came into Singapore Harbour, a small unit of Australian Zed Force on kayaks, managed to sink 6 japanese Ships. They kayaked to one of the islands and were picked up by an Australian Submarine.

And most notable was the fact that general mcArthur arrived in Australia after the fall of Singapore.

What set the Japanese back a lot was the massive losses in the Coral Sea and in Papua New Guinea on the Kokoda Track.

At the time, the Americans were landing thousands of troops in Darwin. The Stuart Highway was full of equipment positioning behind the Brisbane Line. The columns of equipment was uepic and biblical in dimensions. McArthur was now in charge of the defence of Australia.

This is the time there was a massive pivot to the Coral Sea, Pacific and ultimately Australia. From then on, America became Australia’s number one ally and it remains to this day.

And we won. Doesn’t matter what who who fell. The allies prevailed. A bit here with Greece’s defeat of the Italians, a bit there with the Battle of Britain, a bit in PNG, and Coral Sea. We kept chipping away, then we biked them and we won.

Right side of history.

You living in Britain should know more about Churchill than me.

And early WW2, we were always on the Blackfoot against a superior Germany and Japan. There were losses after losses. Greece was the first to chalk up a small victory against Italy.

That was the first goal the allies scored, thanks to Greece. Hitler had to bail Italy out, and that took resources away from other critical areas.

Then the Americans entered the fray and the Germans invaded Russia. Slowly the war started to turn from 1942.

By mid 1944, the tables were turned and they were he ones running.

Yes the allies were in many hard fought battles, like the Battle of Crete. Which were battles intimately lost. But the war was won. Germany and Japan were defeated.

It’s like you Turks celebrating Gallipoli. I have no idea why. Turkey was on its knees but we suffered horrendous casualties and decided we needed to withdraw our troops. Which we did. On they went to the Western Front with General Monash. And on they went with Field Marshal Monash to defeat the AXIS resoundingly, and defeat Turkey. And an ANZAC who was at Gallipoli was in charge.

And Turkey was made to cede territory to Greece.

See this is what happens. You and Get Real say Greece and Australia can’t strike fear in their opponents. Well their enemies are welcome to think that at their peril. But both countries wrote a glorious history which Greece and Australia should be proud of.

And that’s the thing with war. Get Real said China can crush Australia. But how can they? How can Australia be crushed? Will they nuke us? They will be nuked. No crushing win there.

Will they invade us? Well if they did that, it will be the biggest military blunder. Their soldiers not only won’t be able to fight us effectively, but they will be attacked and lulled into the desert. Eventually, the Australian elements will claim their soldiers. That’s a war they can and probably will lose.

But I also believe China knows this. They wouldn’t be crazy enough to try their luck.

I mean if it were that simple, Italy should have crushed Greece. It didn’t.

The Germans should have crushed the allies. It didn’t.

Japan should have crushed Australia. It didn’t.

Germany should have defeated Russia. It didn’t.

The Germans should have crushed Britain. It didn’t.

And according to Get Real, China should crush Australia. It probably wouldn’t even try it. Because the reality is this. Before the Chinese even have the thought of wanting to crush Australia, they are probably already dealing with the Americans. At that point, things are already precarious for them.

And the other reality is, America is a nuclear power.
