Guess We'll Have to Nuke Sydney Too

To get a little perspective on how the U.S. slog in Iraq is looking in the rest of the world, take a look at this piece in the Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald, especially the end of the article, which offers a peek at behavior you'll wait a lifetime to see reported state-side. (Thanks to Bob for sending this on.) Here's the "money" quote:

"In the last week the Americans have managed what the Iraqis have been unable to achieve in a year -- a sense of national unity. But the glue is outrage and anger as Iraqis who have stood back from Washington's attempt to remake the country have found voice and weapons to challenge the US occupation."

And for the record, Australia IS a member of "The Coalition of the Willing." And so far, they aren't rounding up people Down Under for failing to be enthusiastic for Bush's War.
