Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I lived in Oz for a decade ... I was half kidding about invading Fiji, and completely kidding about invading Bouganville or Guadalcanal ...

... but a counter-invasion in case the Indonesians invade Darwin? That one is a lot more plausible. In a country of 20m next to a country of 100m+ with a history of invading places in their neighborhood, the military, at least, of the less populous country smaller country will not ignore that prospect in its strategic planning.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
