Who's afraid of Austrailia?

Problem for us is, they are a strong ally, so anything they do gets uis dragged in.

I'm sure there's a LOT of diplomatic stuff going on all the time. If the US ever got really pissed, we could always do the protectionist thing and throw a 20% import tariff on all Chinese goods. It would hurt our economy, but not as much as it would smoke theirs........

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)
