Can this be real?
Cos if it is then there is nothing left to say. Ignore the marchers. They know absolutely nothing.
This morning's Insiders on the ABC featured a small spot by some guy involved in the anti-war march in Sydney today. Incoherent all the way through, when asked some questions about what he proposed to do about Saddam, he said something like: I do not support war without a UN resolution. I will support war with a UN resolution. Saddam is not Australia's problem. Saddam is not Australia's problem. Not enough evidence exists that he is a danger to us. Here is Australia.
And then Kevin Rudd, Labor's shadow foreign affairs minster, or whatever the opposition guys are called. You know. The thing. On Nine's Sunday. We have a need to look after our region, our backyard and our home. We should be focussed on North Korea and Indonesia and stuff.
I could not quite work out the Labor position on Iraq. It seems to be whatever the UN does - Labor will be fine with that. But that cannot be right. Because if the Oz leader Howard commits our troops to Iraq without a UN resolution (cannot say whether that is more likely than not - hopefully, not necessary, hopefully UN will survive this crisis by actually standing up for itself as an active force) then Labor will for sure be supportive of our troops, yes? Shirley.
Anyhoo, watching lots of media and not seeing anyone follow up that disgrace with Aziz and his refusal to take a question from an Israeli.
Just like the sign, eh?
