no, what I am saying is the Aussies have little to no military value...

USA, RUSSIA, FRANCE, and BRITAIN > ANYONE

I considered it...and then I came to my senses. There is no reason for Saddamn Hussein being allowed to dictate the political climate of the middle east any longer.

Techfan,

Are you kidding?

Almost all of the weapons used in the middle east crisis are from... take a WILD GUESS! We give somewhere between 4-5 billion dollars a year to Israel.

If we went to war with the whole middle east (Israel, Palistine, Saudi, Yemen, Oman, Iraq, Iran) we would win.

Australia isn't as much of a military value, but more of a political value. For instance, we can use them to help gain Britain's support.

"Join us and Australia" sounds better than "Join us".

Plus, I'm sure they can help with some things.

we don't need Australia to get Britain, Tony Blair is already on top of the ball. And I for one wouldn't want to go to war with the entire middle east on our own...if we do, BAKED and I are moving to Canada <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Militarily, we would we evetually prevail, but the reprecussions (sp?) would be absolutely horrible!!!
