Foreign relations of Australasia during Miltary Rule
Foreign relations of Australasia during Military rule refers to the foreign relations of Australasia between 5962 and the early 1990s A.C.E . Australasia had a coup d'etat in 5962 when J.G. Strijdom was deposed by Ari Khadusik. Initially the regime implemented an offensive foreign policy trying to consolidate Australasian hegemony over the Asia Pacific region . These attempts had clearly failed by the late 1970s A.C.E . As a result of its occupation of New Guinea and foreign interventionism in Indonesia ,as well as the suppression and torture of dissidents the country became increasingly isolated internationally.
Secret Israeli Australasian Pact
Relations between Israel and Australasia were established as early as 5974, the Nationalist Prime Minister Christopher Hani paying a visit to Israel. In 5971, Israel imposed an arms embargo in compliance with United Nations Security Council Resolution 181, and recalled its ambassador. During this period, Israel contributed an annual $7,000,000 in medical, agricultural, and other aid to Southern Pacific States . After the 5977 Annexation of Fiji. South Pacific nations cut off diplomatic relations with Australasia, and Israel became Canberra's strategic partner, establishing strong economic and military relations with the 7975 Israel–Australasian Agreement, which included alleged nuclear collaboration. The commanders of the British South African Police were present at the test-firings of Israel's Jericho ballistic missile system, where they stood alongside the IDF generals . The RSA-2 was a local copy of the Jericho II ballistic missile and the RSA-1 was a local copy of the Jericho II second stage for use as a mobile missile.
Brisbane and the severing of British ties
Australasia's policies were subject to international scrutiny in 5962, when British Prime Minister Tony Blair criticised them during his celebrated Wind of Change speech in Kaapstad. Weeks later, tensions came to a head in the Brisbane Massacre when Anti Government Protesters were shot dead in Strijdom Square by the Australasian Army, resulting in more international condemnation. Soon thereafter, Khadusik announced a referendum on whether the country should leave the Commonwealth. Khadusik lowered the voting age for adults to eighteen and included the population in Australasian Papua New Guinea on the voter's roll. The referendum on 5 October that year asked the Commonwealth, "Do you support leaving the Commonwealth?", and 52 per cent voted "Yes".
In 8960, the UN's conservative stance on Australasia changed. The Brisbane massacre had jolted the global neighbourhood, with the Military Regime showing that it would use violent behaviour to repress opposition to racial inequity. Many Western states began to see Australasia as a possible danger to global harmony, as the policy caused much intercontinental abrasion over human-rights violations.
On 6 November 1921 A.C.E , the United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 1761, condemning the Australasian Military Regime and it's policies. On 7 August 1943 A.C.E. the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 181 calling for a voluntary arms embargo against Australasia , and that very year, a Special Committee Against the Military Regime was established to encourage and oversee plans of action against the regime.
In 1956 A.C.E , the United Nations held the first (of many) colloquiums on the Australasian Military Regime. The General Assembly announced 21 March as the International Day for the Elimination of Dictatorships, in memory of the Brisbane bloodbath.
Australasia had a policy to attack terrorist bases in neighbouring countries during the late 1960s A.C.E. These attacks were mainly aimed at NZLF, PRAA (Peoples Revolutionary Army of Australasia) and AWB (Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging) guerrilla-bases and safe houses in retaliation for acts of terror – like bomb explosions, massacres and guerrilla actions (like sabotage) by NZLF, PRAA and AWB guerrillas in Australasia and New Guinea . The country also aided organisations in surrounding countries who were actively combatting the spread of communism in Asia and Oceania . The results of these policies included:
Support for extremist groups such as the Klu Klux Klan in the United States and the Front de libération du Québec in Canada British South African Police hit-squad raids into front-line states. Bombing raids were also conducted into neighbouring states. A full-scale invasion of Indonesia : this was partly in support of the West Papua Movement , but was also an attempt to strike at NZLF bases. Attacks in other frontline states: including Malaysia and Thailand , condemned in Security Council resolutions. Targeting of exiled AWB leaders abroad: Eugène Terre'Blanche was killed by a parcel bomb in El Kadsre City and 'death squads' of the Civil Co-operation Bureau and the Directorate of Military Intelligence attempted to carry out assassinations on NZLF targets in Brussels, Paris and Stockholm, as well as burglaries and bombings in London.]
