Well, as the dimwit Pretzel Prez continues to miss his cue, and as the world wonders who gets blown up next, our very own Mendacious Midget PM Johnny "Kiss Arse" Howard and his rabid mongrel pack keep panting for another pat on the head from our very good friends in the Bullshit Bush administration. But hey, not only do our American mates snub our attempts at a equitable free trade agreement, screw our farmers, and get free bed and board at Pine Gap, they also ignore the Aussie toll in the Bali blasts.
That's right arselickers of Australia, in the U.S. media, our pain, suffering and death toll in Kuta scarcely rates a mention.
The Washington Post reckons: "Many of the victims were from Australia, south of Indonesia".
Yeah, that's us all right: south of Indonesia. South of the North Pole too!
The Miami Herald mentions two Americans killed and three injured, but dismisses "most of the dead" as "foreigners".
Meanwhile in Britain, Australia's loss of life has dominated headlines.
My favourite on-line read, The Guardian Unlimited, called the Bali hit "Australia's blackest day since World War II".
I guess the Poms aren't so bad after all!
As for all you deluded, Hollywood-fed "patriots", hell-bent on following a brain-dead Presidunce down the tubes: SUCKERS!
