  • Obama: We`re here to stay

    The head lines in one of our news papers Obama "We`re here to stay" and US troops in Australia gee China must be more important to the US than I thought its looks like the middle east is on the back burner from now on

        It worked for the Brits when they started broadcasting that they were sending in the Gurkha's during the Falkland Island Conflict. Many of the Argentine's didn't want to lose there heads to those guys with the curved knives. :0

            Frank,

            With a friendly nod, may I ask if you're worried about this too? You are always concerned with "Communist China" and I think Obama has heard your concerns and therefore it is simply a matter of military logistics to strengthen our presense as closely as possible to the area of the south China sea that seems to be too often disputed by China's navy.

            Besides, it's a good deal for both Australia and us.

              Thanks for the reply. I didn't understand the reason behind us being there. No, I'm not worried about this, but it all concens me a bit. I would say aside from my health and family, I am concerned for the economy. I just read that President Obama brokered some trade deal with some of our asian friends in the amount of 25 billion dollars, I wonder how that compares to the 300 billion in walmart sales in the USA? Communist China is growing too powerful on our consumer dollars as we grow weaker with more Americans unemployed and revenue to cities and states down. I don't like communist china, it's brutal and oppressive government. I see no reason to praise the communist chinese for anything they accomplish when human rights are part of the price paid. I hate to see what has happened to my country.

Tony along time ago you said something like "no wounder you guys can't afford socialized medicine you spend your money policing the world" I sure don't want socialized medicine but I sure would like to save some of that money we spend all over the world. Anyway that point was not wasted on me. and most insiteful on your part. so how much do we have to pay to keep troops there?

                          Now I'm confused again! Will we have troops there to keep an eye on the chinese navy, or is it something to do with money? I don't understand the money part? Is china buying land in australia?

                            No Frank the US took their eye off the ball as the real money from now on is in Asia China and India and the US wants to parade its influence and if it is not there it carn`t so what would be a better place to park its troops than at the top end of Australia as we talk English and have the same policies on Asia.

                              No problem your welcome but dont give us too much credit,if the SHTF in the world Austrailia would probably get wiped off the map in the first few days. Maybe by then we could work out our differences with the Chinese and the war wouldn't extend to the U.S. Most Americans would feel terrible.......then crack a beer and turn the game on. See ya.
