Malcolm Fraser speaks some truth on China and the US Alliance

Filed under: — Bravus @ 9:49 am

Malcolm Fraser is a former Liberal prime minister of Australia and a great man. His humanitarian work in retirement has been excellent, and although he is from the Right politically he has been a consistent voice for sense and compassion on asylum seekers, foreign aid and a wide number of other issues.

This article on Australia’s relationship to America and China, posted after some of the Wikileaks revelations of communications between Australia and the US, is very smart.
