    I think we had a discussion about this america is offering long range transport aircraft to Australia and some australian politicians were suggesting this was to protect their 'interests in the gulf'.

    Clearly Rice's enthusiasm for confrontation with China and attempting to create a US-Australia-India axis isn't matched by the Australians. This follows Australian threats to reconsider its $12 billion commitment to buy up to 100 joint strike fighters unless the US agrees to share the secrets of the planes' Stealth technology.

    Similarly only 10 out of the 40 Indonesian legislators requested to attend a lecture by
    Rice in Indonesia bothered to show up

    Indonesia like Pakistan and now even Australia have the same complaint
