Lieutenant Adnan bin Saidi, (1915 - 14 February 1942), was a Malayan soldier of the 1st Infantry Brigade which fought the Japanese in the Battle of Singapore. He is regarded by Malaysians and Singaporeans today as a hero for his actions on Bukit Chandu....

The Japanese Imperial Army had been expanding steadily since their entrance into the war. There were several aggressive actions undertaken by the Japanese which would have stricken fear into the Australians. The Japanese Bombed Darwin, Broome and several other North australian towns as well as invading many islands between Japan and Australia, includin PNG, ending with the kokoda campaign.

No definitely not Australia is wholly independent in its actions from the British. Australia is a member of the commonwealth the head of which is Queen Elizabeth this is because Australia chooses to be.

There was no such fleet to Singapore. The HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse were sunk on 10 December 1941 by Japanese warplanes near the coast of Kuantan in Malaya. The British battleships should have been accompanied by the carrier Indomitable but she was damaged and without the air cover provided by the carrier, the 2 warships were nothing but useless metal that had slow reaction against the bombarding by the Japanese warplanes. The strategies that the British had were of little use in protecting Singapore. The British had control over Malaysia and Singapore. They thought that no one stood a chance in attacking Singapore from Johore, Malaysia simply because they had lots of land troops in Malaysia to fend off any enemy attacks. Hence, they stored warships on the nothern coast of Singapore, which they thought would be protected from any invaders on land. They had ample units in Malaysia and thought they simply cannot lose. Instead, the British build up cannons at the southern coast of Singapore, in Fort Canning and Sentosa. To them, the only way enemies can pose threat to Singapore was to attack by the sea, explaining their actions.

Western powers restricted their trade with Japan.

In the months after bombing Pearl Harbor, the Japanese took offensive action throughout the Pacific Ocean and even beyond. They invaded the American-held islands of Wake and Guam. They invaded the Philippines, as well as the Dutch-controlled territories of Borneo and Java. They overwhelmed the British defenders of Singapore while also invading New Guinea and making invasive moves towards Australia. While striking into Burma, they also sent a carrier fleet just east of India to harass British naval forces.

to show the importance of the actions usually it uses actions more than speech just like the play of hamlet it consists of a dumb show

During the Pacific war, the Japanese captured 22,000 Australians: soldiers, sailors, airmen and members of the army nursing service, as well as some civilians. Due to the fall & the over run of stronghold positions such as Singapore, skirmishes & battles that were lost due to the better Tactics & Strategy of the Japanese Military Force commanders. Along w/ the fact that the Soldiers & Sailors of the Japanese military were better prepared to fight in the terrain where the actions took place. They were imprisoned in camps throughout Japanese-occupied territories in Borneo, Korea, Manchuria, Hainan, Rabaul, Ambon, Singapore, Timor, Java, Thailand, Burma and Vietnam and also Japan itself. At the end of the war only 13,872 of the POWs were recovered: one-third of the prisoners had died.

These are fairly central in Buddhism. Karma (kamma) is the view that actions have similar repercussions, either in this life or in future lives. For example, harmful actions have negative repercussions, and beneficial actions have positive repercussions.So one can help ensure a pleasant reincarnation by performing beneficial actions and abstaining from harmful actions.The ultimate goal of Buddhism is the cessation of suffering and reincarnation. This is known as nibbana (nirvana).
