Chinese navy surveys future overseas base.

Yesterday three Chinese warships steamed into Sydney harbor.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian was not informed of the arrival of three Chinese warships until the vessels steamed into Sydney Harbour yesterday morning, with Labor challenging Scott Morrison to explain why he did not ­announce the visit.

Defence experts said it was ­important there was transparency about engagement with China, ­arguing the decision not to form­ally announce the arrival of the biggest Chinese naval taskforce to Australia in years was “a bad look”.

It is indeed a bad look.

But not to worry for the premier of New South Wales as it turns out that plenty of local “citizens” knew that the sailors were popping in for some Peking duck.

Videos on Chinese social media platform WeChat showed members of the Chinese-Australian community coming out to greet the ships, with dozens of people lining the harbour.

The HMAS Melbourne visited China recently but I can guarantee you that no members of the “Australian-Chinese” community were invited onboard because China is not so stupid as to countenance any such community in the first place. That local Chinese citizens who also enjoy Australian citizenship knew about the visit before the premier of the state is beyond embarrassing; it is revealing.

China is rapidly purchasing critical infrastructure in Australia while at the same time giving permission for millions of its citizens to emigrate here with all of their money intact. China now feels so confident of its position that it steams into Sydney harbor with armed marines in flak jackets on the decks and then invites local model citizens on board while snubbing the local powers-at-be. Just what exactly does everyone think is going on here?

Chinese marines toting heavy weaponry in public in Sydney – a pity that Aussie citizens don’t enjoy the same privilege …

Actually, most people think that there’s nothing to see, that it’s all just a beat up. That’s what the majority of the hundreds of comments on the linked piece declare. Here’s a particularly stupid example:

People born overseas will always have some affection for their roots, that’s to be expected. How may poms with Australian citizenship support the UK sporting teams against the Australian sides?
Its better not to be too paranoid.

Actually the opposite is true – it’s better to be too paranoid. That’s how you avoid waking up to discover that overnight you’ve got a new government and you had better learn Chinese quick smart.

This is a diplomatic visit of which the local diplomats didn’t know was going on. On the same day there was another diplomatic visit overseas; Trump had his audience with the Royal Family and political leaders in London. In matters of diplomacy, nothing is coincidental. If the intention of the Chinese was to boldly declare that they are the new kids on the block and that they care not for old and crumbling alliances then they couldn’t have done a better job.

But what am I saying? No need to think this way, comrades. It’s better not to be too paranoid.

    Just think about the Trojan Horse and the associated subterfuge that led to the fall of a city…..

    Now expand on that substituting my fucked up country in place of of the city of Troy and its job done.

    If a Chinese Navy port visit occurred in a primary shipping corridor like Singapore or Panama that would be no big deal given the need to transfer via these places. BUT coming to an isolated island like Australia on a “port call”, give me a break! Clearly there’s an influence grab going on here.

    I get the feeling they will sail in-between Tasmania and Victoria to retaliate for Australian navy freedom of navigation missions in the South China Sea of recent. They may as well go over to Stirling navy base over in Perth and shock the folks in the west as well, since Australian politicians are so clueless and cucked. I’m probably wrong, but let’s see what goes down.

    Typically when you have a warship sail into another nation’s port unannounced it’s considered a prelude to war. Oh well, Australia had a nice run, it’s a shame it’s going to be run by the Chinese. Lebensraum by other means.

      A significant percentage of the white Australian population are so neutered that they behave like overly-domesticated animals that have had their natural ability to perceive threats of danger out-bred.

    And when China conquers Australia, australian women will happily submit and marry up their new chinese overlords (who have a deficit of women at home, thanks to one child policy). Men will become sort of slaves, as usual.

    我已經學會了中文,也住過了那裡亂七八糟的地獄。
    I have already learnt Chinese and I have lived there in that €@%£~π© Hell.

    I ain’t Australian, so if your country continues on the path of national suicide, my sadness will just limited to the indirect effects of what ever happens to the fee friends I have there. The Chinamen will or have already planned for the jackhammering of your collective anuses once they take power. Most of it will be figuratively, so if you are a heterosexual masochist, you’ll be fine. If not, well, sucks to be you. Maybe you can figure out a way to whack enough pols to change the government’s policies for the better. I doubt it though.
