I think this largely over-rated. When Paul Keating was calling for Australia to be part of Asia I recall the leaders of Indonesia and Malaysia responding to him in a very luke-warm fashion. Infact Mahathir Mohammed openly objected to Australia joining ASEAN.
When Howard took over as leader on a platform of Australia should not lose it's ties to Britain, the Asian countries respected this form of re-affirmation of identification. While I never liked Howard's snivelling and use of race to win votes his decision to confirm Australia's British identity made sense. If anything it increased respect from the Asian region, including China. The Chinese couldn't care if we act like monkeys and scratch our backsides provided we give them what they want.

Australia is not part of asia.

Asians in Australia are an embarrassment to the Australian people.

We are embarrassed because we were stupid enough to let them into our country in such large numbers and now we have to tolerate their crimes and their racism, not to mention their racist expectations that we 'have' to allow more of them into the country.

As for this rubbish we are being 'left behind' i have to ask; left behind what?

Don't worry about false US proxy location, Humbert.:-) Non-American, noodle-slurping Humbert's only role is to divide US - Aussie relations, spinning wild horseshyte: lies and hyper-exaggerations about your rather nice country and nice people.:) We are kin after all. Humbert wants the solid US-Aussie alliance broken (seeks to anger Americans against Aussies, with astroturfed slander), to see Australia exposed to rising East Asian coercion. ;) Humbert's noodle suppliers also want the US to lose a key friend and ally - Australia. Bit by bit, day by day, chipping away, a bowl of noodles is his pay....

Australia an 'embarrassment' in Asia, naaah really, NO bollocks?

Take a look at these two videos on Youtube and tell us what the reality is in Australia and how other countries perceive Australia.

and this
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

But, NO problemo Aussies, just keep going down the arrogant path.
The day will come when no one will give you even a golden shower for fun and entertainment.

Asians are racist as well, by the way. At least as much as any other ethnicity.
I didn't bash indians. I'm not rascist- maybe the older ones are. But old people lived in a diffrent world.

Being here at the time,

The "very *few* " Indians that were attacked in Australia were in the vast majority done by other Indian nationals, Australians with Indian background, or other non-European ethnic groups. One fool Indian even burnt himself, trying to destroy his car for compensation money, then blamed his injuries on "aussies" :) The Indian media hyped the Indian attacks issue (the very few attacks) up. ;) Even the Australian Indian community thought the Indian media was going way over the top regarding the issue a few years ago.

Meanwhile, I read that the murder rate in India is twice that of Australia, and, that many more Australian nationals have been murdered in India, than Indians in Australia, over the last decade.

Bhutan is another third world indian society you moron, like nepal
Even vietnam is more advanced than bhutan.

The only reason why keating wants to be asian is because he wants to make money with ASEAN.
Not because he really wants to be asian
Even bob hawke is a director in a hongkong company
They only want money. You can come to aus with $5 million even if you look like bin laden or idi amin.

By what reasoning? Geographical proximity?

So by that reasoning Africa is in Europe.

And by that reasoning Greenland is in Canada.

Please confirm.:)

Mr Humbert is a padeaphile reject from hell anyway! Why you an expert in hating Aussies when you are a kiddie fiddlier who was kicked out of catholic church for annointing too many alter boys with your penis. Your constant bullshit lies against Aussies is only to take out your gay frusutrations on a country that hates padaephiles like you. Why you not fcukoff and join your local website.

If Australia is such a dangerous place for Indians, why do they stay here? Why do they keep coming by the plane load? Because everyone knows we live in the best county in te world? They don't really understand our culture nor do many of them want to integrate. If you say anything you are branded a white racist. I've been abused by Paki taxi drivers for asking them if they were from India. We have become so apologetic for our own culture. At work everyone will say Seasons Greetings not Merry Christmas. No other culture does that, Diwali is still Diwali. It's all a bit much.
