Australia doesn't have enemies as such, but there are several countries in our region that would rather us be somewhere else. These countries are Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Solomon Islands. Australia can be quite vocal and direct in the promotion of democracy. This rattles the nerves of some of our Asian neighbours where there are governments in power not used to international scrutiny. Sometimes they take our well intentioned nudges to do the right thing as interfering in their affairs. This is especially so with nations with large islamic populations or authoritarian (military) goverments.
