Massively ramp up the military to defend the bowl. Also put the screws on with high food prices for the exports.

So when will the industry be regulated, with award wages paid to Australians who are actually willing to work in the fields? Never! That's when! When have Australians been encouraged to do market garden work? I smell another crock brewing. Chinese owned farms with Cc Chinese and other foreign workers more like it. Most Aussies would smash their own kneecaps before doing that kind of work.

Well obviously we will let the Asians continue buying huge swathes of land, then when they own more of Australia than Australia does they can move 100 million Chinese here to start rice patties in the Desert.

its interesting that many ppl feel offensive to the topic, but you don't realise Australia is too weak itself;

Australia cannot feed itself without emerging Asian countries HELP and support in buying its resources, lands and other exports

Unfortunately it is happening already at a frightening right. Mono racial involvement too, if you get my drift.

To dear SepposRevenge (alias Mr Humbert):

Instead of backstabbing USA and its friends/allies, the best thing you could do for USA (apart from being deported back to the non-West, or, more correctly, cease pretending you're physically in the US with your proxy) is volunteering your flabby ass for our joint US/Aussie military target practice exercises in Darwin.))

But, you missed you meds again(!) today.

Time for (yet) another refresher (Humbug never learns):

You dimwitted, slanderous sod.

So it's more lies from the humbugged Goebbels. ;) You're like one of our 9-11 deniers, hoping that the sheer volume of anti-truth posts will sway public opinion.:-)

Gawsh, you're a bullsh1t peddler, Humbert ?)) Read again, word for word. Let it sink in this time. Try your best.

Australia is largely anti-China, you fcukhead. They respect, but are wary of China, as is Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, most of the world. Like US, the Aussies do business with the Chinese. The Chinese aren't interested in true democracy and Western freedoms. The West isn't interested in dictatorship and repression.

1) We, the USA are China's largest trade partner.
(You don't understand that, do you Goebbels ? You're a total fcuktard on a slanderous vendetta against Australia).:-)

2) USA imports more from China than any other country. We've also greedily and stupidly off-shored much of our manufacturing there, fool.

3) US EXPORTS more to China than any other Western country. Yes, we, the USA. Even in 2010 our exports to China grew by a 32 %.

We are fast-tech-ing China up. Why do we Americans do this ? Personally think this is unwise, but, there we have it. Handing our technology over to China, giving the Chinese our tools.

For your slow brain - repeat: China is now USA's biggest overseas export market, fool. USA EXPORTS more to China than any other Western country. You still don't understand this, do you, Goebbels ? ;)

In the last decade since Beijing joined the World Trade Organization, US exports to China have risen 468 percent to $91.9 billion, compared to a 55 percent rise in US exports to the rest of the world. No other Western country has this record.

Personally, being in Australia is like being at home. Americans have more problems living in Europe. Working at it, aren't you, you anti-Australian fcukstain ?:-) Your mountain of anti-Australian bile is staggering.

Minnow Australia only has 23 million people. A small economy. Leave them alone.

Australians are a great people and the cultural bond between Australia and us, the USA, is unbreakable. We, the US are Australia's LARGEST investor, you idiot. Sigh.

In fact, Australia is more traditional, more Western than our country, than just about any British-settled country.

Its much more dominated by UK and European peoples than the USA is. This is why I and many Americans also like Australia, despite me personally having no qualms about different races/cultures.

Most Americans feel Australia is "like USA was 20 years ago" (a comment one hears every few years), in terms of being less stressful with less social problems (despite what BS you read on Topix).

Besides, a lot of Americans live and work here. We have increasing military operations and presence within the Australian region. We have global strategic missile defense surveillance based there. We have strategic interests in east and south Asia. You're an uneducated loon. You're against mainstream USA. You're against US government wishes. You're a divisive anti-Western fcuk. ;-)

The West stick together, especially the culturally similar countries of Canada, USA, Australia, UK. If not the wider EU/West.

Hopefully with the political swings were seeing lately this sort of nonsense will be sorted out before it gets to messy, of not I guess we will have to take up arms with single shot rifles and low caliber pistols.
