It's not an either/or choice for Australia.

China needs Australia more than Australia needs China, and the Aussies can always work that angle to their best benefit.

China is a long way from being the strategic equal of the U.S. It has a lot of internal strife, a rapidly aging population due to its one child policy and its military isn't even close to being on par with the U.S. Obviously over time the strategic balance will shift among the countries of the Pacific, but I don't expect it to turn into a bipolar China-US system. Remember, India is also a rising economic and military power that won't accept a secondary position to China in Asia.

America is a shitty ally. We get Australia involved in stupid wars and we add nothing to their economy. The Chinese don't have military bases world wide and won't ask Australians to die for them and have business they can do with Australia's natural resources.

If Australia wants to wed China, it can look forward to being told to censor its internet and silence human rights activists.

You mean more so than what Australia censors now? (Google it - not as extreme as China of course..._
