>>53110729 Because no one sane wants to live in that disease infested bogan hellhole. Who cares about a bunch of skips anyway? PS. Your cities are slowly being taken over by Asians, Lebos, Greeks, and Africans. Enjoy your White Privilege while you still can, skippy.
>>53110851 Well if Japs captured Port Moresby, that would have allowed them to successfully base and continuously attack Australia and the surrounding islands including New Caledonia, if New Caledonia was captured than Australia would have been completely cut off from supplies from the East Coast thereby chocking and later knocking out Australia from the war rather than invading it and removing a vital foothold for the Americans in the Pacific.
So yeah, eat that you kanker STILL DIDN'T GET INVADED THOUGH LMAO
>>53111382 >>53111486 >"In mid-1942, a reporter walking along Queen Street counted 152 local women in company with 112 uniformed Americans, while only 31 women accompanied 60 Australian soldiers. That it was thought necessary for the media to report this situation indicates the effect of the American presence. (About 12,000 Australian women married American soldiers by the end of the war.) "They're overpaid, oversexed, and over here" was a common phrase used by Australians around this time and is still an anecdote recognised by some in modern generations.
>The Americans had the chocolates, the ice-cream, the silk stockings and the dollars. They were able to show the girls a good time, and the Australians became very resentful about the fact that they'd lost control of their own city. —Sergeant Bill Bentson, U.S. Army"
>"..a crowd of up to 100 Australian servicemen and civilians had gathered and began to besiege the PX, throwing bottles and rocks and breaking windows. Police Inspector Charles Price arrived but could do nothing as the crowd continued to grow, with the American Red Cross Club diagonally opposite the PX also coming under siege. Sporadic fights broke out throughout the city... 5,000 people were involved in the disturbance. Several Australian MPs removed their armbands and joined in. Corporal Duncan Caporn commandeered a small truck driven by an Australian officer and three soldiers. The truck contained four Owen sub-machine guns, several boxes of ammunition and some hand grenades.
>A war correspondent, John Hinde, was on a hotel balcony overlooking the scene and later stated, "The most furious battle I ever saw during the war was that night in Brisbane. It was like a civil war."" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Brisbane
>>53111521 Initially, it was merely an outnumbered amateur militia sent to counter the Japanese since the AIF were still returning from Africa and the US were still sending troops having only recently entered the war.
>Although the defenders were poorly trained, outnumbered and under-resourced, the resistance was such that, according to captured documents, the Japanese believed they had defeated a force more than 1,200 strong when, in fact, they were facing only 77 Australian troops.
>>53111676 All the sick cunt Aussies were over seas fighting. The same was happening in NZ as well https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Manners_Street
Beating up GI's was just banter to most people involved in the battle anyway since randoms on the streets decided to join in on the punch ups. Americans took it too far and shot a bloke though the mongrels.
>The intersection was filled with rings of Australians beating up GIs and more than 20 were injured. U.S. Army Sergeant Bill Bentson who was present on both nights recalled how he was amazed to see "Americans flying up in the air."
>"But after that, it sort of settled down and you go into a pub and an Aussie would come and up and slap me on the back. "Oh, wasn't that a good ruckus we had the other night? And have a beer on me."
>>53110729 You lost against emus, why should anybody invade you?
>The Emu War, also known as the Great Emu War, was a nuisance wildlife management military operation undertaken in Australia over the latter part of 1932 to address public concern over the number of emus said to be running amok in the Campion district of Western Australia. The unsuccessful attempts to curb the population of emus, a large flightless bird indigenous to Australia, employed soldiers armed with Lewis guns—leading the media to adopt the name "Emu War" when referring to the incident.
>>53111676 >on 26 November an intoxicated Private James R. Stein of the U.S. 404th Signal Company left the hotel where he had been drinking when it closed at 6:50 p.m. and began walking to the Post Exchange (PX) on the corner of Creek and Adelaide Street some 50m further down the road. >He had stopped to talk with three Australians when Private Anthony E. O'Sullivan of the U.S. 814th Military Police Company (MP) approached and asked Stein for his leave pass. While Stein was looking for it, the MP became impatient and asked him to hurry up before grabbing his pass and arresting him. At this the Australians began swearing at the MP and telling him to leave Stein alone. >American MPs were not well regarded by Australians because the Australians thought they were arrogant and used batons at the least provocation. When O'Sullivan raised his baton as if to strike one of the Australians, they attacked him. More MPs arrived, blowing whistles, while nearby Australian servicemen and several civilians rushed to help their countrymen. Outnumbered, the MPs retreated to the PX, carrying the injured O'Sullivan. Stein went with them.
>>53111873 >>53111676 >all the fighting age men who weren't sickly or pacifist pussies go to war >literally nothing left but betas and invalids >a handful of americans getting local girlfriends or wives at this time is seen as some kind of great achievement
Meanwhile more than half of Italian women were selling their cunts to Allied soldiers for loaves of bread and whole Italian villages getting raped to death by French Africans
>>53112563 Also, MacArthur was a complete fucking idiot when it came to the New Guinea campaign. Both Australian and Japanese forces struggled to gain ground against each other due to the harsh terrain and diseases of PNG. "General MacArthur considers quote light casualties indicate no serious effort to displace enemy unquote." Growing frustrated with Australians lack of advancements at Buna, Douglas decided to send American troops in believing Australians to be inadequate for fighting despite never seeing the geography of the battlefield ever.
>"... most serious of General MacArthur's failings, he never got out from behind the desk to find out what was going on. On more than one occasion this failing was a life-or-death error for the troops at the front. Had MacArthur bothered to visit the Philippine Army in the field prior to the war he would have known they could not oppose the Japanese on the beaches. Had he regularly visited his troops on Bataan he would have realized that his troops were literally starving to death. Had he gone to the front in New Guinea, he would have seen the horrible combat conditions under which he directed his units forward "regardless of cost."
After sending American troops Douglas was completely shocked to find the embarrassing effort of Americans at Buna
>By 29 November, MacArthur had become frustrated at what he saw as poor performance by the 32nd Division, especially its commissioned officers.
Douglas was a shit commander and had no idea what was happening at New Guinea, and American efforts in New Guinea were pretty embarrassing.
