|I found this beauty on another board & just had to share. The obsession with gun ownership suggests to me that the 'club' he belongs to spends a lot of time burying their firearms & making up 'register poofters not guns' posters. Lots of good healthy middle class whinging white man love there.
I haven't posted a reply yet, but I'd love to hear the views of the collective on SP. Attention to demolishing specific points would be much appreciated.
"Although most people think the idea is preposterous, an Indonesian invasion of Australia is quite possible.
Australia has never really seen war on its own soil (apart from Darwin and a couple of Japanese subs in Sydney Harbour in WW2) and the citizens are very complacent towards homeland security.
The Australian gun laws have rendered the city dwellers unprotected and there are virtually no bomb shelters. Most Australian houses would fall apart with a few blasts from an AK47 and the occupants would surrender in a second.
With the majority of Australians, there is a firm belief that "We're too isolated and the U.S. will support us". It would take several weeks for the U.S. and Nato to organise troops to Australia, and if the Indonesian Military were already here and had taken over Australia's military resources (which is highly feesable), there would be a war of massive proportions.
"But wouldn't Indonesia be leaving their own country unprotected?", I hear you ask... No, because there are approximately 50 million Indonesian citizens with illegal guns and there would be no point trying to fight them on home soil... remember Vietnam? Nuking them would be the only viable option, and nobody wants to do that.
I know it seems ridiculous, but my friends and I are members of a club who analyze strategies and the potential for one country to take over another. We do this with ALL factors in mind, including economic, population, political, and resource motivations, as well as good old border expansion.
The Indonesia versus Australia debate was one we worked on for months.
In the end, we found that Australia would easily fall to a full-scale invasion by Indonesia in less than 72 hours!
If you could imagine a few dozen container ships, full of military equipment and men, unloading in the middle of the night into every capital city's harbour, whilst strategically placed and timed bombs are distracting the depleted Australian forces and law enforcement throughout these cities (remember that many Allied soldiers, Navy and Air Force are on active duty in Iraq, East Timor, Africa and Afghanistan and there are already over 300,000 Indonesians residing in Australia), plus the limited Allied Air Forces could be pushed into a conflict with the Indonesian Air Force in the Northern Territory (far, far away from the east coast cities), and with little to NO resistance from the general population, the invasion could be achieved almost OVERNIGHT!
A well executed plan of attack, matched with 200,000 military personnel, a couple of hundred tanks, and a few dozen fighters and bombers, could do the job for Indonesia... Imagine if they were backed by China or Russia...
The reality is, though, is that it's all speculation and games.
Indonesia may win in the end, but it relies SOLELY on the fact that guns have been banned in Australia for everybody except farmers, hunters and sportshooters. If Australian citizens had compulsory military service or allowed citizens to own guns, Indonesia wouldn't stand a chance.
Then again, Australia doesn't have either, do they?"
