jack halyard US big guns invading Australian politics (22) RE: US big guns invading Australian politics 11 Jun 04


It's tempting to make puns about military intelligence and oxymorons. I think George Bush has been denying the Americans usable intelligence for quite a while.

One of my concerns, and Ill risk a prediction here, Is the fate of David Hicks, now that he's been charged. I fear he has been charged in indecent haste pending both US and Australian elections.

When he is found guilty- and I don't have any hopes of "If" with the sort of show-trial they will concoct- either he will have a viciously heavy sentence imposed to show the world how strongly the US deals with "terrorists", or he will be extradited to Australia to demonstrate, just before the elections, how merciful a man Bush is, and how much influence John Howard has with great and powerful friends. Howard will then have the chance to show how strongly HE deals with terrorists.

Australia desperately needs some national politicians willing to stand up to the bullying and manipulation of its internal affairs by the United States.
