Misattributed to Yamamoto, but a great quote nonetheless:

"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle 
behind every blade of grass."

There would be rifles behind most gum trees if Australia was invaded. At

But it seems we're perfectly happy to sell all our most productive 
country (mines, farmland) to overseas interests, so no doubt we will be 
purchased not invaded.
