While Australia will never thrive as a nation until it rids itself of the homosexual threat, their current concern should be seriously considering their radioactive plates of shrimp and other seafood.

Most Asian countries were quite pleased about the US "pivot to asia" , probably because they trust the US far more than China , and feared that China would play the big bully game and help themselves to every resource in the region whether it was theirs or not....(lol)....however , the US will always have a major presence in the South Pacific region , and the so called "pivot to Asia" was , in reality, just a name adopted by media concerns , after a speech by President Obama....not much will change , actually, unless your into listening to the endless propaganda nonsense that continues to dribble out endlessly from both the Chinese and US government bullshit brigades.

Be careful what you believe in news. I don't trust that Rupert Murdoch control along with other co-chairman. Rupert Murdoch is never on USA or Australia's side.

Fukushima plant managers after years of denial finally admitted an estimated 400 metric tons of highly radioactive water has been spilling into the Pacific EVERY DAY for the last three years. Maps projecting the spread of the radiation use only the initial release of 2011, not the daily 400 ton leak. It could be a much higher tonnage. Where are your fishing fleets? By 2024, you'll be surrounded by a very contaminated crustacean and ichthyofauna food chain. Think food chain.

Rupert has almost secured the NBN now . I watched a Malcom Turnbull interview a few days back , and when asked when the NBN would be sold to Telstra , he immediately changed the subject. Ruperts Fox is the major shareholder of Telstra , and when the NBN is sold to Telstra , it basically becomes Ruperts. Malcom is another robot churned out by the Goldman Sachs Zion machine. His current job is to devalue the NBN so Rupert gets it for peanuts. Abbott won't stand in the way , because Rupert was the bloke who installed Abbott in his current job.....lovely people this lot.

Yes. Rupert Murdoch is a Pro-Z-ionist and much of America's media is controlled by Z-ionist J-ews. President Obama is another puppet for the J-ews who "stand behind him" in politics.
Wrong answer. 85% of Jews vote Dems. No USA can thank Australia for Fox News. Fair and balanced my ass.

J-ews voted for demos or republicans doesn't mean they are supporting them. They want to destroy USA and move to different countries like USSR J-ews does.

I am sorry that our Pro-Z-ionist ex-aussie traitor are dumbing your American children down. No Australians would want to des-troy USA or other countries, or turn in to third country.

My three advice is to throw your TV out and use internet connected to monitor. They have many great stuff to watch. Don't touch anything that are j-ew connected in any way. We are not j-ew's goy puppets. Homeschooling your children by hiring tutor or you teach them.

Stop voting for demo or republicans. They are not helping anything but to worsen problems domestically and internationally.

Apologies, CCP Buster.) I was in Beijing for the 1989 Tianamen Square memorial service. Very busy. I swear I saw your brother Jake Barnes there selling Deng Xiaoping balloons and fried noodles to the tourists.

In Australia we must protect what is ours.
If that means having US bases here. Then let it be so.

As far as I can see Australia is US's staunchest ally in Asia.
USA's uneasy feeling has to do with their own lack of self-confidence about the future, drawing too many red lines which US and Australian citizens are wary of defending. Borrowing money from China to build a military to fight China is a very dodgy economic model.
