China will keep doing what we tell them or we cut them of. & China clearly fears Australia will side with the USA, Europre ect ect or China & it scares them.
Thats why China keeps paying Australia so much attention.
I don't here china telling Europe & Canada not to side with the USA ... Coz China could care less about Europe & Canada.
& As for the USA .... Same goes.
Australia invited the USA to join Australia's new south east asian community that Australia was setting up. & the USA laughed ... & declined.
So we went it alone .... 15-20 years latter .... Europe, The USA & Canada are kissing up to Australia big time in hopes Australia will help them gain entry into the Asian markets for their bankrupt nations.
Just last year Canada blocked several Australian takeovers of Canadian company's such as BHP's attempted takeover of Canadian company Potash. In return Australia, Blocked Canada's entry into Australia's free trade deal with Asia.
Europe & the USA are kissing up to Australia in the hope Australia will help them gain entry into the Asian market that they both have been locked out of by China.
& the USA & Europe are kissing Australia's butt, because the USA & Europe are afraid Australia Has turned it's back on Europe & the USA in recent decades. & now see's it's future as part of Asia.
Europe, Canada, USA all ignored Australia & Asia for near the last Century. & today Europe & the USA are struggling & you need our help.
USA/Europe are concerned that Australia will return the favour & cut you loss.
So Europe & North America will give Australia anything it wants. ( all in the hope we will help you gain entry into Australia/Asia & the Pacific.
(( you can always hope ))
