Nothing like listening or watching a video where the white European is concerned about someone "taking over". China has Nukes. China has 1.3 billion people. Bye bye European dominance.

All Chinese citizens who are students or just working temporarily in Australia, the US, or wherever, should be considered to be spies. They are all directed by their communist dictatorial regime to collect information whenever they can. This is well known among those of us in the service. So, be friendly, but be careful.

China will buy more from USA and less from Australia . Is USA still a good partner of Australia ?

Australia was wonderful without China. I know I was there. Australia has a great capacity to move on without China. It would be hard for the tall poppies, but people adjust. Australia HAS everything it needs to survive without China. Trouble is everything good is exported to China cheap - and they want it because it is excellent quality - and Australians pay exorbitant prices for our own quality products. Worst thing Australia did was get involved so much with China. We were scooting along fine as we were. Oz is a wonderful place That’s why everyone wants to come here.

Please present accurate facts. There cannot one 262,500 Chinese students in Australia for the following reasons: 1) an average Chinese high school has around 3000 students, and even in the top performing ones, no more than few people go overseas for university, let alone Australia. This isn't even considering the rest of the population, the vast majority of which are not university age students. 2) You said that 10% of Australian university students are from China. So you are saying that there are over 2.6 million people or 8% of the population studying in University. The last statistic from 2013 show that there are only half that number of university students in Australia. On another note, don't ever again mention that Australia wouldn't exist without the US😠

I work closely with Chinese. Give it 20 years, I suspect Australia will be more Chinese than Australian. China build reliance, then influence, then take over. Stand now or it will be too late.

China is doing same thing in African countries like Somalia and Kenya . You can watch video on Al Jazeera . Basically called debt-trap. China has already taken over Pakistan. Idk but honestly I'm not really a huge supporter of Chinese Superpower. I'm skeptical about her.

Thank you for the educative video, I have also seen some very childish behaviour in the comment section. Remember, racism doesn’t solve anything and this sentence won’t fix anything “Fuck those black Asians!”. Don’t put your hate onto mainland Chinese civilians who have nothing to do with the communist government, the same hate was released onto travellers in Hong Kong. CIVILIANS ARE INNOCENT, DONT MISTAKE INNOCENT PEOPLE AS THE COMMUNIST PATRY!

This report may clarify why Scott Morrison is such a prick to the Australian people; he's truly dead set on getting a surplus so we can crawl out from under China's shadow. Maybe he wants to pay off Australia's monumental monetary debt to China to free us up to actually take a stance against their policies. Could be wishful thinking, of course.

Yanks think they know everything; the reality is that they know pretty much "sweet fuck all" about anything other than the blah, blah, blah, wah, wah, wah, yah, yah, yah of their own backyard. Australia isn't a superpower, and neither is Yankee land. Yanks are all talk, but they can't even beat IS - IS et al will eventually bring the stupid, dumb-arsed fuckwits to their knees. Yanks are paranoid about everything except their own paranoia.

We just sold our water, in the bush fire area, to China. We sold it to China so they can bottle it and sell it back to us. What. The. Fuck. This country is fucked. Capitalism is fucked. We need to kill these rich cunts in power and start again.

It's nothing wrong to have economic growth by trading with China. This is not Australia problem. The problem with Australia is to blindly follow US politics to contain China.
finn barks (7 days ago)
The funny thing is that a lot of people that come from China come to settle in the area (suburb/state) that I live in and if you search up Box Hill VIC AUS you will find plenty of apartments and a couple of sky scrapers in the middle of suburban melbourne half of which aren't even inhabited because the people are either there or in China making it a real problem for the surrounding infrastructure.

Australia's economy is entirely propped up by outliers, the 1% as you'd call it. Sure, there's growth. Growth in the disparity between the haves and the have nots. Similar to Australia having a low unemployment rate. Sure, lots of people have jobs, if you consider working 10 hours a week a job. Australia's capital cities are weeds in a garden, sucking up all the water and nutrition in the soil around it, as the rest of the plants wither and die.

Well this can all be laid at the feet of corporate CEO's and their boards. If they hadn't sent manufacturing to China they wouldn't have the money and power they have. In the event of war, before we fight that war we need to make sure that these traitors are fed feet first into wood chippers and their families sold into slavery in the middle east.

Also when I shop on the Internet freight from China is minimal where as freight from the US is like $25 for a small parcel when China sometimes provides free freight for very small items. So we're basically forced to shop from China. My favourite internet shopping is madeinchina.com not eBay.
