First Nationalism. Then Empire Building.

A comment on this post of mine prompted me to search out this article, which reports:
Prime Minister John Howard says the United States should take a leadership role in Iraq for an interim period after the military conflict.
Foreign Minister Alexander Downer will fly to the US next week to discuss the post-war reconstruction of Iraq.
Mr Howard says Iraq should be run by the US immediately after the war.

Oh yeah. Let’s clone today’s America. Spread the dis-ease.
When my Dad was young and more Republican (he got more liberal as he got older), I used to tell him that, when the revolution came, he knows what side I’m going to be on. Maybe that revolution will come yet.
