Good post, Miz... and a very good appreciation of the situation here in Oz.

I dunno if you heard, but an American, Scott Parkin, was deported from
Australia the other day after being assessed as a "security risk" by ASIO...
despite the fact that he had niether done or even advocated doing anything

We live in scary times... but not for the reasons that Dubya & Howard are
telling us!

Hey, if yr interested, check out www.waxaudio.com.au .. a very skilled guy
in Sydney who's done some great rearranging of samples of Dubya, Howard &
the gang.

necks with big guns and small minds.
In reply> I agree with Eno on his anti-war stance. A large majority of
Americans hate
Bush's agenda and his covert imperialism (myself included), but to me
Brian's comments seem decidely anti-American as opposed to anti-Bush. I
in a redneck community (Manassas, Virginia, 18 miles outside DC), but I
tell you that Americans, rednecks included, hate this war.

In comment on the reply: alas rednecks are a global phenomenon. It's not
about you or your neighbours Mike. Take a look at the Australian
scene, where a redneck named Pauline Hansen had her policies stolen by
another political party so they could stay in power. And they have. In
terms of foreign policy, what to make of the comment by one local
politician that Australia is an arse-sniffer of the US, and a year or so
later a US diplomat said 'there is no oxygen between us'? (meaning the
relationship is very close indeed).

In fact it'd be a good thing if rednecks were limited to just one country.
Hey, that's the answer - ship 'em all back to where they came from!

Good on Brian for making a stand.
