Why does Australia FEAR China? - VisualPolitik EN

  • Published on Feb 5, 2018
  • It has been 45 years since China and Australia established diplomatic relations. Throughout this time, both countries have established one of the most fruitful, controversial and interesting relationships in the entire planet.

    Economic relations are very important for Australia: today China is by far its largest trading partner; 1 out of every 20 inhabitants of this country belongs to the Chinese community and both its universities and beaches are packed with students and tourists from the Asian giant. Thanks partly to all this, Australians have not experienced a crisis in almost 30 years.

    However, these growing ties clash with Washington’s interests, and in 2017 the Australian government decided once and for all to take sides. Since then, a diplomatic storm has been unleashed and Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has not refrained from blaming the Chinese intelligence services for wanting to corrupt Australian politics and society. In this video we’ll tell you what’s happening in this particular cold war, that is beginning to emerge between China and the United States.

    Communism is immoral, gaining political power through the mass murder of their own people. Anyone who supports this illegality is an accessory after the fact and is also guilty of the crime and also immoral. Why should Australians want a murderous regime for their government? Mao Zedong mass murdered millions of his own Chinese people but he is still venerated and his likeness depicted on the Chinese currency, that means that the Chinese people are in agreement with what he did murdering his own people, that makes them all immoral, communism is a bad, illegal, criminal form of government. Anything that has as its roots evil, is evil.

    Can we just abolish every relationship with china, since it doesn’t have human right and freedom?
    Well! No! Why? Because we want money business and market from china (our own profit), and we want human right and freedom at same time!
    And compared to value (human right), money (profit) is much more important!

    Like all western nations (yours too Simon) Australia fears the US military (CIA NSA etc). To the extent that Aust politicians just banned Huawei based on NO EVIDENCE to appease the US overlords. England does the same thing Simon. After the US financial collapse (coming soon) all they will have left is bombs and guns. So hang on to your hats, they will try to reclaim the empire they consumed and depleted by force.

    Aggressor n aggressor ,thief n thief with the same mindset. Both countries were create by stealing n robbing out of the natives expense. Australian willingness to be dog n slave of Washington is understandable. In its eagerness to be at the feet of the US n be its slaves it lost its sense of analytical power. When coming to security did China ever colonized any land even at its peak of power in history? Even today did China ever install multiple military bases all over the world ? NONE! and if China does any military built up it's b'coz of the American threat surrounding its border rim. lf the Australian think they rather choose to be align with the US then get the fuck off n do your business with US n it's allies n don't interact with the Asian communities. China n all other Asian nations will be stronger n more prosperous even without Australia.If they want to participate in the peace n prosperity of this region then think as the Asian think or face isolation.

    There may be terrible events, and unparalleled calamities yet awhile on the earth,
    but Bahá'u'lláh assures us that erelong, these fruitless strifes, these ruinous
    wars shall pass away, and the 'Most Great Peace' shall come." War and
    strife have become so intolerable in their destructiveness that mankind must find
    deliverance from them or perish. Today there is no greater glory for man than
    of service in the cause of the “Most Great Peace.” Peace is light whereas war
    is darkness. Peace is life; war is death. Peace is guidance; war is error.
    Peace is the foundation of God; war is satanic institution. Peace is the
    illumination of the world of humanity; war is the destroyer of human

    Baha'i World Faith - Abdu'l-Baha Section, p. 231)

    Baha’u’llah revealed with incomparable clearness and comprehensiveness the means for bringing about peace and unity amongst mankind.

    Australia wants war with any Asian country thats hitting the news. After Japan bombed Darwin in WW2, Australian Givt has been harping about a Japanese invasion until the tiger economies in SE Asia rose and Australia started about being invaded by Indonesia. So China has had some financial gains and a military so they're now the flavour of war. yawn. Australia just needs a war to give themselves an identity.

    Regardless of all the politics, this vast and rampant growth is so grotesque in architecture and will probably not last very long, eventually becoming trashy looking and in need of constant repair. Just take a look at the 'ghost cities' of China; huge metropolises devoid of any human residents. It was this rapid growth that made Australia 'rich', but when the well runs dry, it relapses into useless and ugly. Classic case of "don't bite the hand that feeds you." China's economy is more than wobbly; it's stalling fast.

    Well yeah chinese corrupt politicians seek safe havens around the world since they dont trust their own Country and 70 year lease they hav for property in China (without right to leave the house as heirloom for their children). So they drive Prices skyhigh outside China disturbing all economies. They should halt all Investments from chinese but Keep the Commercial Relations. It's no secret chinese students are abroad as real estate agents for their clan or Family since it's difficult to Transfer otherwise Money out of China. Rich chinese people send their children as real estate agents to other countries disguised as students, were they have to invest the Money of their parents. Besides that be proactive as chinese agents to "advance the chinese dream" which is spread chinese influence and imperialism.

China is harmonious only as long as their mafia-run government gets what they want and keep everybody in their place. Anybody who gets in their way gets punished.

When the trade war happened, Australia shouldn't follow the US like that quick, It should watch how the thing goes for a while, maybe just let Canada do it first. I really hope Australian government can repair the relation with China , then make the country's economy better.

    The typical American citizen, such as myself look up to Australia and think of it as a kindred spirit with the same motherland (England) and share pretty much the same basic culture, same with Canada and New Zealand. Americans love to visit all these places because they seem so much like home, but have their own nuances and the people are wonderful and friendly. We always hope this is so. I can't speak for our governments however, they always do their own thing, regardless of what the people really want !! That being said, CHEERS and we love Australia !! Steve from North Carolina.
