    If this was your practice you would have to do the same for the other mentioned countries. So in this sense, im lumped in with all the other rectum kissers.

    Thats democracy for ya, don't ya love it!
    Sounds like your a little bitter about being the minority in Austrailia, thankfully most Auzzies are level headed and are steadfast allies and not the ass kissers you call them simply because they disagree with you.

    "It would not be colonisation because colonisation involves administration of the country captured and brought into vassalage. It is quite a headache."

    I agree, it is a headache, and thats what I see happening here.
    So in other words you have created your own meaning for colonization then....

    I stopped reading at this point. This never happened. Stop getting your information from left wing extremists and tabliods.

    I agree completely with this Administrationís goal of a regime change in Iraq-John Kerry

    He may even miscalculate and slide these weapons off to terrorist groups to invite them to be a surrogate to use them against the United States. Itís the miscalculation that poses the greatest threat-John Kerry

    DonJasper,
    Nice discourse. Happy.
    But we (Indians) still believe that the war in Iraq needs to be won by the US. We have discussed the reasons in other threads, hence I sha'nt repeat them here.

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!

    Your head of state and that of Australia is the Royal Monarch of Britain. So technically the British monarch is the C-in-C of your respective armed forces.

    Thanks. Programmer actually. So I likes military history, got a desk job and have a lethal combination of curiosity and a short attention span.
    We're optimistic. They're p*ssed off. Another day in Iraq.

    No, technically, she is the Queen of Canada. We do not recognized her authority as the Queen of Great Britain.
