is how your goverment looks to me. The view from here in oz, at least to this here hairy nosed wombat, is that the U.S. of A. appears highly duplicitous regarding what it says and what it does. I'm lousy at remembering the details, but the cumulative effect of Americas foreign policy has left a lot of people here looking askance. Spin wont help change this perception, aussies have a good nose for bullshit. Your goverment needs to open up a bit, admit its true intentions and past mistakes.
I apologise if I appear insulting here. America came to most of us in oz through our mothers teat and we often feel like a satellite state, so I really feel like I'm slagging a part of me. It's just that distance can often afford a clearer view.
