More US War-Waging Set For This Summer : In Australia ...
Almost everyone has heard by now about US, VP Dick Cheney's recent trip to Australia for a face to face with another cretinous poodle Prime Minister friend, John Howard.
Perhaps not surprisingly, there wasn't much mention by the self same 'msm' of anything at all re; the 'real' shocking story:excerpted below.
In June this year, 26,000 US and Australian troops will take part in bombarding the ancient fragile landscape of Australia.
They will storm the Great Barrier Reef, gun down "terrorists" and fire laser-guided missiles at some of the most pristine wilderness on earth. Stealth, B-1 and B-52 bombers (the latter alone each carry 30 tonnes of bombs) will finish the job, along with a naval onslaught.
Underwater depth charges will explode where endangered species of turtle breed. Nuclear submarines will discharge their high-level sonar, which destroy the hearing of seals and other marine mammals.
No sweat cobbers, join the giant sized crew across the globe.
Here's some more from the same scary story.
Australians know little about this. The Australian parliament has not debated it; the media is not interested.And there's much more where this came from, friends.
The result of a secret treaty signed by John Howard's government with the Bush administration in 2004, it includes the establishment of a vast, new military base in Western Australia, which will bring the total of known US bases around the world to 738.
No matter the setback in Iraq, the US military empire and its ambitions are growing.
Australia is important because of a remarkable degree of servility that Howard has taken beyond even that of Tony Blair.
