Good concise article Shammy. An interesting comment below where a Yank(presumably) commenting on how he has found more Australians than Kiwis being aware of this history. The Coral Sea as well as many other SE Asian, Pacific events and spheres(Kokoda, Changi, Darwin, New Guines etc) were taught in primary school when I attended in the 1960's. Not sure if it is still taught now. Maybe more emphasis on WW1 in Europe now?

Amazing the advancement in hardware in such a short period of time from those cruiser style carriers with their limited radar and intelligence gathering capabilities and the smaller size and firepower compared to today's  mega sized carriers(3 times displacement for Carl Vinson eg) and amphibious  strike groups. Imagine 2 strike groups confronting 2 more today, the devastation that would follow and in a very short period of time.

With 12 carrier strike groups, combat over the horizon is the reality of USA warfare today. No more confrontational warfare on the high seas and very limited in skies. Special operations and high mobility infantry supported primarily by air frames are the ground tactics of today. Countries dedicated to million men Armies are inconsequential today. It amazes me how the all volunteer US military has changed from the Korean/Vietnam era. Unmanned ships and aircraft are in the pipeline right now.

Chicken - egg.

Did Rex get fired because he criticized Putin, or did he criticize Putin because he was sacked, making a statement on the way out?

Rex knew his time was coming when Trump tweeted Rex was wasting his time talking with Rocket man, and last week, while Rex was in Africa, Trump announces he is talking to Kim. Major slight to him. Kally rang him in Africa on Saturday, waking him up. What was so important? Forewarning the coward Trump would sack him while he was out of the country?

It was widely reported last year that Tillerson, Mattis and Mnuchin had a pact that if any either resigned or was sacked the other two would follow him out.

Wonder if they will follow through?

Friend of mine recently got back from America, and she said its a revolution in America.
She estimated 90 out of 100 people support Trump.

What she equally found interesting, was talking to people that voted Hillary, or supported Sanders, have jumped fence and now strongly support Trump.

She was totally shocked. She said the best way to describe the wave of support for Trump, is a Revolution.

They mustn't have got the revolution memo in Pennsylvania today Redemption. Another special election, another 20% flip against Trump's 2016 numbers, despite spending 10/1 in an unloseable ballot

Trump is sacking everyone who doesn't agree with him 100% which means that everything coming out of the Trump administration will be 100% genius.

Trump has the wrong Title.
He isnt a President.
He is a King.

He is certainly in the top 5 leaders in world history.

Kim Jong Un will mow Trumps grass on his golf courses one day.

The thing is, Trump is running rings around normal politicians, because they cant keep up with his business savvy.
the world is a business, and Trump is just dominating them.

Redemption i think you are speaking for most trump supporters but here  isjust a snippet for you 

The stock and bond markets, where every investor who had ever placed faith in Trump lost money, were closed to him. A fund financed by the billionaire George Soros agreed to invest in a Trump development once — but only once. A private equity firm, Colony Capital, backed out of a Trump project, forcing the Trump Organization to self-finance. Wall Street and financial institutions worldwide all knew that, as a businessman, Trump was a disaster.

Yes, like the Trump share buyback scam under the guise of a $1.5T tax cut for the wealthy?
