>benefits from this too.
Funny way of saying doesn't benefit as much as it otherwise could
>Chinas actions were threatening her as well that is why she did this
Nay. They were responding to the US' so-called "containment" and Australia does what she does because the "fellas down under" are too geopolitically cucked to stand for their own interests, rather than those of the imperial center. It's easier to stay firmly put under the USG's skirt, than to stride independently. In more diplomatic terms, we might say that the 5 anglo eyes have great ethnic and cultural affinity, or imperial kinship, so plebs are willing to believe that their collective interest will be long-term protected by the USG, even if they pay an individual cost short-term
>sovereign country whatever way you look at it
I gave you a 100% objective and relevant "way to look at it" that says it is not
>they don't recognise Taiwan as being China
DPP cucks? Who cares? Right, the anglo that stands to benefit cares. On the other hand, KMT did see the island as part of a whole china (as the "real china" meme remembers)
>It's far from a wholly Chinese affair
Tasmanian independence is far from a wholly Australian affair. Such appalling lack inclusiveness to deny Indians or Brazilians a say
>Well if Tasmania was the Government, had bled itself white in a world war for the west...
1, Lol your delusions are truly serious if you think chiang fought "for the west" lmao
2, a civil war was underway before the bulk of the japanese invasion and the period normally called ww2, in fact it was a major goal for japan to keep china thus divided for easy picking
3, the japanese, invading with the typical excuse of countering communism, ended up fighting against *both* communist sympathizers and chiang's nationalists, so if you want to keep your delusion that KMT "fought for the west" you'll have to credit the CCP for the same
4, the only sense in which one can say that chiang and commies bled their people white "for the west" is in the sense that they bled "because of the west". Specifically, chiang kept fighting a retreating war always expecting the US or other allies (or even Germany in the very early stages) would send them more military aid. However, the west's "europe first" policy meant that such patience would cost them millions of casualties. Of course, the west's understandable selfishness was only a secondary cause. Mainly it was due to the chinese's own poverty, division, feckless military and corrupt leadership, including Chiang who perfidiously kept part of the western aid for his own faction precisely when his nation needed it most to defend against the japanese invasion
