Could the Australian military resist an invasion?

From who?

The Australian Military is small but quite capable, Australia itself s a very strategically defensible country, and few countries have much force projection capability these days.

Could it resist an invasion from the US? No way.

China? No.

India? No.

Russia? No.

The UK? Probably not.

France? Probably not.

Korea? (either one) Probably not.

Israel? Probably not.

Pakistan? Probably not.

Italy? Maybe.

Iran? Maybe.

Japan? Maybe.

Any other country? Probably.

Any country below the top 20 or so most powerful (including the ones I listed)? Absolutely.

Realistically, only the US has the logistics capabilities to successfully invade Australia. China, Russia, and India have the strength (and human right's record) to pretty much just brute force it, any of the "probably not" countries could stand a chance under the right leadership, and the maybe's might stand a chance. No other country could do it remotely realistically, barring unseen factors or sheer incompetence on Australia's part (though I left it as probably because you never know). For any country other than the US, it would be a very long and bloody affair.

But Australia is a well liked country, is very close allies with the US and UK, and has a good relationship with China, and with the exception of maybe Iran, no power that could threaten Australia has any interest in getting on the wrong side of any of those three countries, so from a strategic perspective, Australia is untouchable, much like Canada or Switzerland.


What is the probability that aliens have visited Earth?

Firstly, the probability is ill-defined because we have no statistical data from which to derive a probability. In order to arrive at such a possibility there are a whole train of individual probabilities that must be estimated, and once again, we currently have little

Are aliens coming?

It is mathematically impossible for aliens to NOT be teaming throughout space , therefore where are they all? The only conclusion can be they are kept out, while we are simultaneously kept in because we are a farm for what the ignorant call aliens (the ones know from abductions) yes with technology and are

Are NASA and Space X rivals?

Not really. In the United States, the general policy is that the government will not compete with private enterprise for activities that are not inherently governmental. If the government is doing something (like launching commercial satellites) that is not inherently governmental and a business believes they can make a profit
