I wish 2.4 billion dollar spent on space agency. There haven't had fund stability for space activities since then.

I think it's all a heap of bull shit if you ask me. What does Indonesia have to hide is the real question.

We do a fair bit for indonesia. They are probably still pissy that we helped out in Timore.

No doubt Indonesia is doing dodgy things with other Asian nations such as China. I'm prepared to put my Topix name to that. Why would we appologise for gathering that information when they have got similar information from us? I mean Asian groups commonly hack innocent Australian businesses and ask for payment before restoring their computer systems. This happened to someone I know. He in the end just had to pay the money and his business computer system was restored. It was costing him too much money.

I don't think you could say that Indonesia is the most honest or trustworthy country, one would tend to use the word corrupt actually.

Why do you think Australia give aids to Indonesia in the first place?
Of course Indonesia matter a lot to Australian national security.
Australia left alone will behave better but the CIA now owns the ASIO so it is a very embarrassing situation that Aus is in now. Abbot is not authorized to apologize.

CIA doesn't own ASIO so where did you hear that from? Because Australian government worried about Indonesian government conspiring against Australia. Abbott is not supposed to apologize, if he did then he is going get hammered by Australians as there are hundred Indonesian spies in Australia. What did you mean by Australia behave better?

It's hard for aussies pride but the reality is Australia is only spying on behalf of USA ie ASIO's real boss is the CIA. Edward Snowden, working for the NSA, knows more about ASIO's activities than Tony Abbott.
Obama when asked about spying on Angela Merkel said that it wouldn't happen again. Can Tony Abbott say the same to Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono? He can't because he needs clearance from Washington.

Indonesian Gov is not spying on Australia. Don't over estimate Indonesia. The CIA have infiltrated Indonesia thoroughly. They know their every move.
The threat Indonesia pose to Australia is terrorism. These terrorists have nothing to do with the Gov. By listening to President Yudhoyono's phone call is not going to help fight terrorism.

CIA is stealing info from Indonesian leaders and pass them to their hedge funds so that they can make money in the currency market. Same reason they did that to Angela Merkel. She is not a terrorist.
USA just want to steal money where ever they can lay their hands on.

CIA is not ASIO's boss. Indonesia government have spied on Australia before and go ask why did indo-gov spied on us for? there are proofs out there so good luck telling us that Indonesia didn't spy on Australia.

And not once did you mention leaky boats and the intergovernmental arrangements regarding them.

Some eavesdropping on Indonesia's somewhat suspect sincerity about cooperation would be handy to Australia's government, even if all other realms of interest did not feature.

What is the first item of cooperation SBY targeted by way of retaliation? Speaks for itself.

Even if Indonesia want to spy on Australia they wouldn't be able to do it without CIA knowing it first and probably feeding them all the fake information.

Indonesian Gov is not behind those leaky boats. They are incompetent, they can't help it.
