News Australia's government

  1. Apr 15, 2004 #1
    The credibility of Australia's government is rather toasted right now. Nobody believes them. We sent troops to Iraq, and amazingly got that big AU$4 billion/year trade deal with the USA right after it. Alexander Downer (For those who don't know, as the head of DFAT, Downer inherited control of ASIS.) is probably about as trusted as Bush and Blair. The funny thing about it is, they just quoted him on the news here. The news reader started with "Alexander Downer, if you can believe him, said..."

    Downer and Howard Are Clowns

    Not that anybody on this Forum cares about us stupid Australians...

    Anyway, our elected leaders are a joke.
    Howard is a Muppet of Bush (who himself, is a Muppet of his Hawks).
    Downer is a little weasel, who lies almost as much as Howard.

    Our leaders have absolutely NO credibility on the world stage. None whatsoever.

    Our leaders are liars, who are condemning us to the same fate as that of the USA/UK. The sooner a "regime change" in Australia, the better for our "America-tainted Foreign Policy".

    That's not true. We care.

    I've detested little Johnny from the start; he is a small-minded man. The fact that we voted for this puny politician not once, not twice, but three times, together with our rejection of a republic, is a shameful indictment of our culture of mediocrity. Yes, let's watch sport and renovate our houses; for god's sake let's make sure we're normal. "Eh? Is that guy reading a maths book on the bus? That's un-Australian!"

    A Leading Position On The "Hit List"

    We have a leading position on the "hit-list" of our "imposed" enemies now;

    Well, I guess that is scary since they could do something to you.
    You should just vote a leader that is friendly with China. The Tibetan people aren't able to hurt you, and you'd get some good trade out of it :smile:

    So you don't like the Chinese either, hey?
    They make up 20% of the world's population.
    Let's hope they don't share the same feelings about you.

    I think the Mayor of Melbourne is Chinese. Not sure if that guy is still in office.

    I wonder if any Chinese live near Phatmonkey?
    Perhaps he could herd them out of the Land of the Free...so he won't have to put up with their Commie plans to take over the world.

    Well, apparently they're a "threat" of some kind. Them and the Koreans.

    Chinese people and the Chinese government are two wholly different things. Don't project your racism onto my politics.
  14. Apr 21, 2004 #13
    Again, keep your racism to yourself. I won't be falling for your bigotry.
