Reference the ABC News(Aust) coverage of Australian PM Julia Gillard, video coverage of Perth broadcast to leaders there – “US strength vital for relations”.

“Prime Minister Julia Gillard has told leaders gathered in Perth, that the US must regain its economic stability if it is to continue to underpin security in the Asia Pacific region.”

Comment #1:  Julia is saying this when she doesn’t understand what it’s all about, and does not even care about the Australian public or our financial health, point in question – Carbon Tax.

Comment#2: It is for certain that the US must gain financial and economic stability, but it has no intentions of doing so. Here is a relevant extract, posted on another blog, ref http://tipggita32.wordpress.com/2011/08/09/obama-administration%e2%80%99s-left-over-al-qaeda-card/#comments:  This, from Obama on dealing with, or not, the financial situation – [First sentence mine].

Grasp the enormity of the corruption revealed in this extract from the report:(especially “we expect to have future bail-outs”)
“We know that ambitiously crooked executives helped themselves to outrageous sums that came right out of generous government bailout packages to the banking industry. Yes, we are talking CEO’s taking home hundreds of millions of dollars in ‘bonuses.’ We expect to have additional bailouts in the near future, and with those, we expect to see the same CEO robbery trend happening again and again. It is a fact of life today; a fact of the American way of life. We understand public pressure to do something about this mega thievery, but we urge you not to give in. These executives are more privy to our nation’s sensitive secrets than even our high-level intelligence executives. We cannot isolate them. We cannot turn them away. Think about their value to the terrorists we are at war with – the Al Qaeda. Can we take a chance on even the slightest possibility of these executives playing for the other side? We smoke and chase them out, and the other side, the Al Qaeda, may welcome them with open arms. We consider these executives valuable potential recruits for the terrorists – the Al Qaeda. And we cannot take a chance. And we are asking you not to take that chance…”

So what chance for the US economy?

Comment #3:  “if it (the US), is to continue to underpin security in the Asia Pacific region.” I am practically speechless about this. If the US is underpinning security anywhere in the world, it has a strange way of doing it! The opposite is a better assessmment.
