I will always have a strong case of 'us versus them' when it comes to the enemies of my country. I am amazed anybody would expect me to think otherwise.
There was a reason the Japanese rated the Australian soldiers very highly in WWII. That toughness, pragmatism and endurance was like turning the tables on them. They feared the American firepower (for good reason) but respected the Aussies as soldiers above the other allied troops.
Personally, I wish our populace was more like you guys...:)
