    No one to fight against? The Australian military has been very busy in the last decade until now in the AMerican lead wars in the ME and Afghanistan. These huge island with a tiny military is getting an oversized experience against freign adversaries in both conventional and unconvential wars compared to much bigger militaries like that of India and China.
