    China uneasy over US troop deal in Australia

    I really don't give a rat's arse what China likes or dislikes, but at the same time I question the need for this move.

    With military bases in South Korea, Japan and The Phillipines primarily as well as other South East Asian countries I think Ozzland is the least of the Chinese worries.

    I also do not see the wisdom of poking everyone in the eye right now either. Does Obama think the answer to our problem is more war?

    I really was never a fan of Newt's but when I see him state that he would attack Iran, he could forget about my vote.

    That's the problem with primary season.

    Hell even Hillary Clinton 4 years ago said stuff like "we will totally obliterate them" just to appeal to the more hawkish in the democratic party.

    Once they get into office that all changes of course, as does "meeting without pre-Conditions"

    Under no circumstances should the U.S. show any weakness in the face of China whatsoever. With China becoming increasinly assertive in the South China Sea and other areas where they claim unreasonable boundaries with no basis in international law or for the rights of its neighbors, the U.S. needs to have a strong posture in the region. Also, as President Obama pointed out, the U.S. and Australia have long been allies who have fought side by side with one another. This is a smart move. President Obama finally does something right.

    Canberra, Australia (CNN) -- President Barack Obama declared Thursday that the United States will take an expanded role in shaping the Asian Pacific region, with an increased military presence one step of that policy.

    "Our enduring interests in the region demand our enduring presence in this region," Obama said in a speech to the Australian Parliament. "The United States is a Pacific power, and we are here to stay."

    On Wednesday, his government announced an agreement with Australia that will expand military cooperation between the longtime allies and boost America's presence in the region.

    What surprises me most is that there has been absolutely no public discussion at all of this issue. This is a highly provacative move. What are we. The disposable front line in case of attack???

    F*ck you Julia Gillard. Why don't you just ask the US Administration to just "liberate" us and make us officially the 51st state.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I agree. Somehow BO stumbled into the first correct decision during this term in office.

    I can't believe the Aussies are agreeing to this move.

    Wouldn't war with China leave us with empty store shelves all across America?

    Re: China uneasy over US troop deal in Australia

    Make no mistake, China has one goal in mind: build a military comparable to ours by first taking over the world economically.

    Doesn't mean they will, but they want to. They have the supreme advantage because their people have no rights, and they have an endless supply of slave labor (which they used to build their Olympic facilities).
