    2 days ago, bombing of Australian Embassy in Jakarta. Looks like it was to disrupt the elections.

    If you go to this link, then to the main site has way more. My heart goes out to the Australian and other innocent victims.

    Yep. I don't think this is going to work with the Australians though, seems Bali only strenthened them. I hope so.

    i'll always remember when we there in perth, australia in april for our port visit...
    this taxi driver said "i love you americans, you don't play games, you keep the bastards honest" (in reference to iraq and the WOT)

    they were all so friendly to us!

    i hope they stay in iraq

    Australia has no doubt been a good friend to the U.S. I wish them well.

    The Aussies were with us in Vietnam. They'll stay with us now. They are even better allies than the Brits.
