That photo is very telling of Australia, moving away from an American bulldog to a Chinese bear, more appropriately a dragon.

It's called an ideological false war and shouldn't include Aus troops, just like most wars and invasions by the religious yanks.

We have good reasons of our own to be in Afghanistan. We continue to be a high priority for Al-Qaeda and allowing them to gain control of Afghanistan would be a disaster for us.

Well Australia needs America than the other way around. Don't like it?? Try dealing with the Indos and Chinese alone. You won't last long.

We have no reason for being there, other than political expediency and a desire to please ideological masters. All we are doing is importing Afghans who bring their religious dissent and cultural demands with them, many who are sympathisers and Trojan horses of islam.

The disaster is opening out borders to these people and encouraging them to flee by fighting an un-winnable war, just like all wars the USA has indulged in since WW2.

The high priority that may be afforded to us is because of our involvement in these places, shut our borders and deport any who object and demand their kind be imported. We are unique because we have borders which are defendable and not subject to easy invasion, unless it's by stealth and supported by do gooder PC elitists and religious nutters.

We are your master, moron. How do white Anglos get to live on a piece of land in South East Asia, its because you need a powerful imperial master. Britain abandoned you 60 years ago, and without America you would be speaking Japanese and now if America left you would be speaking Chinese or Indonesian.

Instead of ranting about it on topic why dont you ask a Australian soldier, most want to stay in Afghanistan till the mission is over and done with and leaving before hand would be a great insult to them, why, because 22 have been killed and leaving now would only have meant that they died in vain thats why and AJC you very wrong when you say that if not for America we would be speaking japanses becase the japs were never going to invade and even if they did what makes you think they would of stayed ??? Many countrys were taken by the Germans and do they now talk German NO so cut the crap ok and why the hell would Indonesian or China want to take Australia, I hear all this talk of how America is saving us from some invading army but what army are you talking about and why do they want Australia.

If America is gone then you Aussies are in deep water, you are a defenseless country with no way to defend yourselves against the giants in your midst. While China is currently padding your economy what they are doing is similar to fattening a pig before its roasted and devoured.

Lets see just how well Australia can survive without America. I know you can barely control that Muslim population in your country that is about to explode. Also the Asians are going to do exactly what Pauline Hanson said they would do, dominate your economy.
