Don't worry! China's president Xi assured the world China is not bent on hegemony! All's fine! :bsmilie:

Australia needs the protection of Big Brother China against Indonesia.
Shouldn't it be the other way around? In the sense that Australia also requires the geographical buffer and military capabilities of the Indonesians against any possible hostility actions conducted by the ambitious might of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) in the long run?

If you had took a closer look at Optimus Prime, you should see a "Made in China" label engraved or imprinted somewhere.
