    more dog whistling from Abbott.... he's getting hammered as a result of his own stupidity and needs another fear campaign to distract everyone... people have more to fear from him and his government than anything else

    Japan must resist this TPP as must other countries... too much secrecy regarding the contents alot of which allow American multinationals to sue governments for doing what is right for their citizens if it damages their corporate interests ie: profit making

    Right-wingers, however, say the women were common prostitutes engaged in a commercial exchange, and are fighting a vigorous rear-guard batRtle to alter the narrative.

    Having seen many interviews over the years with some of these women including nurses and nuns from Australia, this assertion that all the women were common prostitutes is just laughable...

    correct me if I am wrong, but didn't MTV refuse to play Michael Jackson and other black artists when it first commenced back in the 80's??

    well done to the police involved in a difficult situation.... not so well done to the parasitic media and politicians who milked all the 'terror' and 'fear' they could out of the event...

    Making that kind of comment shows why liberals are just flat out horrible when it comes to national Security it's because they DON'T take things seriously.

    Sorry forgot - we need to keep the fear cranked up on a permanent basis now don't we....

    Tenet, the director on Sept 11, 2001, said the interrogation program “saved thousands of Americans lives” while the country faced a “ticking time bomb every day.”

    The country faces a "ticking time bomb everyday"...... watching a little too much Jack Bauer are we???

    what gets me is the total hypocrisy .... claiming to be the leader of the free world and setting the standards that others should aspire to when the the US is often the one that sinks lower than others on an industrial scale...

    Nostromo -- actually, the release of this report is the strongest possible confirmation that "truth and Justice" are still the American way. Think about it.

    Has anybody and will anybody be tried or prosecuted as a result of this report?... I don't think so.... not sure how that can be described as Justice

    Truth, Justice and the American Way.... I doubt the original superman comic would be leading with this line these days - these notions are simply a fantasy in America nowadays - just like a comic superhero

    meanwhile, Japan continues to churn out child porn and violent manga whose producers claim any restriction to limit is a violation of their freedom of expression...

    Abbott, who recently warned that the balance between freedom and security “may have to shift” to protect against radicalised Muslims seeking to carry out attacks, said hate preachers would now be “red-carded” during the visa process.

    "red carded" during the visa process?? First we had "Team Australia" now we have "red cards' and previously the immigration department "refereeing" on decisions..... Why do Australians always need difficult topics presented in sporting terms??

    I hope the United States and all Americans never forget what a good friend we have in Australia

    Lets hope this is a two way street and the US comes to Australia's defence if the day ever comes... there is no obligation under the ANZUS treaty for the US to actually put boots on the ground (sorry, drones in the air) if Australia is attacked...
