Australia's new foreign policy white paper says Australians have become targets because of the new climate of international terrorism.
[No, not really! Actually, Australia's old foreign policy red paper says Australians have become targets because their own government is being run by war criminals that are complicit in state terror, torture, murder, occupation and genocide.]
The policy statement says Australia's vigorous participation in the war against terrorism is vital to protect the country's long-term security.
[But in reality because of Australia's vigorous participation in the Coalition of the Killing's pre-emptive resource wars in the Middle East, Australia is being used and abused.]
The paper says the terrorist threat from Islamic extremists has a particular edge for Australia in South-East Asia.
[Just plain rubbish, because the USA and the Coalition of the Killing's extremists have a particular use for resources in the Middle East.]
The document says the terrorists' perverse interpretation of the Muslim faith seeks to establish Taliban-style states in moderate Islamic countries.
[Just plain rubbish, because state terrorists seek to establish a new world order in the world. Spell that backwoods OWN.]
The white paper, replacing a 1997 document, was released in Canberra by Foreign Minister Alexander Downer and Trade Minister Mark Vaile.
The policy identifies four regional themes - the abiding priority of Asia, strengthening the alliance with the United States, helping with deep-seated problems of the South Pacific and dealing with the growing strength of the European Union.

THE DOG: Australians have become targets because John Howard is a war criminal. Greed, the root of all evil. We suffer for Trade Sanctions off the US and we only get them if George W Bush steals the resources. Mm! But cheats never prosper! Do they? Teach our children well.

War: Part one The human cost On the road to Basra, ITV was filming wild dogs as they tore at the corpses of the Iraqi dead. Every few seconds a ravenous beast would rip off a decaying arm and make off with it over the desert in front of us, dead fingers trailing through the sand, the remains of the burned military sleeve flapping in the wind. "Just for the record,'' the cameraman said to me. Of course. Because ITV would never show such footage.

Not too late for Iraq peace, Blix says But we all know that's rubbish now. The Coalition of the Killing were not seeking WMD in Iraq, they were there for their resource wars. So who gave the 'UN' and Blix the wrong information back then? War criminals!
George Bush's other poodle John Howard, Australia's PM, is the mouse that roars for America, whipping his country into war fever and paranoia about terrorism within.

Middle Eastern: Specific Legislation "If there is a target person the police would have powers in relation to that type of person," Mr Costa said. Asked what he meant by "type of person", Mr Costa said: "The example that's been given is if there's a description of somebody, an identikit photograph released by Interpol or other agencies ... these powers may well be exercised on that type of person." Howard defends terror alert Prime Minister John Howard says the Federal Government would not have issued a terror alert if it had not come from a credible source. (America?) Speaking for the first time since the Government revealed the warning, Mr Howard says he wants people to be more careful, but not to stop living. [As long as they don't go dancing in Bali? And sure we'll all be depressed for as long as John Howard and Bob Carr say so.]
Carr backs Fed Govt's terror alert New South Wales Premier Bob Carr has defended the Federal Government's decision to issue a warning to Australians about a possible terrorist attack in Australia.
When Johnny comes marching home again: 'hoorah hoorah' Posted on the Resistance web page Bronwyn Powell, an organiser of the youth-led mobilisation told Green Left weekly that "in the face of attacks on civil liberties, it is unfortunate that some union officials have felt they need to submit. It could set a negative precedent for upholding the hard-won right to demonstrate in the street." Give peace a chance PIERS AKERMAN DT 28 Nov 02: JUSTICE John Dowd should be removed from the bench. His crime? Stupidity. In a breath-taking display of hand-wringing sanctimonious morality, Dowd has condemned the State and Federal Governments' anti-terrorism measures, claiming they erode rights and give encouragement to oppressive regimes.
