The article linked below is important reading for all Australians.

We are at a turning point in our history, based upon our sense of national identity.

There are two models of "Australia" being drawn up here -
  • one a client state of America, and
  • the other an independent nation.

Kindly take the time to read Michelle Grattan's article.

I know that this image is digitally enhanced, but it surely must be a candidate for a "Walkley". It is brilliant and tells one at least as much as the article does.

What was it Bush said? Something like "we will rebuild Iraq..."?
What happened to the 20 billion dollars that was syphoned out of Iraqs economy before the handover?
Why are basic medical supplies not available to the hospitals? Why does the Pentagon run the rebuilding of Iraq? Are they not the war machine proper for the American Imperial system?
What if Iraq had no oil? So may questions, so few answers.
