- First of all, we are Australian not Austrian. We have troops in Iraq and Afghanistan - The Austrians don't. And there are no Kangaroos in Austria
- Secondly OPEC is a meeting of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries . APEC is a meeting of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation - he should have referred to his auto cue
- The USS Canberra? You've got to be kidding. The HMAS Canberra is actually Her Majesty's Australian Ship, hasn't the Commander In Chief got enough ships of his own?
- "The two most dangerous terrorist groups around here are Jama'a Islamia". Actually, that's the name of a single terrorist organisation with its roots in Egypt and now prolific in Indonesia. They were responsible for the Bali Bombings among other atrocities. I imagine it's very similar to those other two terrorist organisations- Al and Qaeda.
Then again, we have our own problems:
For God's sake, Australians if you haven't registered to vote, get on with it (especially if you've turned 18), the election will be SOON . And Americans, please register to vote, it's your democratic responsibility as well as a right.
OK that's enough politics from this apolitical blogger.
