What was the Australian strategy in 1930 Singapore?

The Singapore Strategy involved the defence of Australia prior to and during World War II by fortifying Singapore. However, ultimately there was insufficient defensive power to prevent the fall of Singapore. Australia lacked suitable strategy despite warnings that, should Singapore fall to the Japanese (which it did), there would be no guarantee of sufficient naval power from Britain to defend Australia. Australia's strategy was supposed to be gradually building its naval defence.

Why did Australia begin to look to the US instead of England during ww2?

Australia had always relied upon England to come to its defence. England was the "Mother Country", the founder of Australia, and one of its chief allies. However, during World War II, England's power base was eroded with the fall of Singapore to the Japanese, and its morale eroded badly. It was busy engaging in war with Germany on the other side of the world, and defending its own turf; thus it did not have the resources to come to Australia's aid when Singapore fell to the Japanese. This is why Australia then turned to the USA.

What is the differences between Singapore and Australia?

Singapore, is a tiny little country located in Southeast Asia. It located south of Peninsular Malaysia or "West Malaysia". Australia, on the other hand is a joke if you want to compare it to the size of Singapore. Australia, is a big continent that also functions as a country with several territories. Singapore's capital, is the same name, Singapore. Australia's capital is Sydney.Singapore, is very small if you were to look at a world map or even a map of Asia, you would not be able to see Singapore. You'd have to get a map of Southeast Asia specifically and you'll see it barely. You'd have to get an even closer map of the Malay Peninsula to finally see Singapore's borders below West Malaysia. Australia is its own country and one of the world's seven major continents.
