Well Debanjee, I have never read so much gibberish in my entire life!!

You ask why Australia fought in the Second and first world wars?

Well I guess because we do not like tyrants, we were attacked, and we like being free.

You may well be pro Nazi, You may well be pro totalitarian, like many Muslims who supported Hitler. However, the freedoms you have today would not be there if it was not for the bravery of Australians, and many Indian, British, US and western countries.

After the Nazis had finished with the Jews, you probably would of been next in the oven as a sub human, Debanjee according to the Nazis !!! That is what Australia fought for Debanjee, to keep you out of the oven!

I also laugh at you calling Australia a Puppet, you really are uneducated, We are the second oldest continuous democracy in the world, we appoint our own leaders, we argue with our friends and we help our friends.

A basic look at history will show we act independently. We share many values with the US and with Great Britain, and we have taken up arms when we need to when we hold shared interests with our friends. Many Australians died on 9/11 and the Bali bombings, we are fighting a common foe here.

Australia has made mistakes in our past, and will continue to do so;but we do have consistently have amongst the highest standards of living in the world. The level of human rights exercised in our country, are the benchmarks many Muslim countries should aspire to achieve. We do not have slavery, capital punishment, corporal punishment and equal treatment of the sexes. We were amongst the first countries to give women the vote, equal rights and introduce anti discrimination laws.

Slavery has never been legal here. We have universal health coverage and free education. We also grant Palestinian refugees full citizenship after 5 years residency, unlike your Muslim brothers do who keep them locked up permanently in camps and always keep them as second class citizens.

We are a law abiding, educated and industrious people. We are majority anglo-saxson stock, but we are also amongst the most multicultural countries in the world.

You claim we impose the leader on the middle eastern leaders, then you claim we are not sovereign? You sound very confused? Are you saying the west appointed Gaddafi?, Or Khomeni, Or Hussein? Are you kidding?

Yes the West have dealt with the criminal leaders Muslim countries continually find to lead them, but we have to deal with what is scrapped up, not who we want.

See Debanjee, we have had a number of fools lead Australia at certain times, but we have things called elections, which mean that we also get rid of the bad ones as well. This is called democracy, it is not perfect, but it is a hell of a lot better than what happens in the Muslim world.

That is why there are not boat loads of Australians fleeing to the Middle east and Africa to escape poverty, death and intolerance.

People vote with their feet, and if you look at where people do not want to live and where people want to live, I think provides a self evident answer!

So you may say how corrupt and evil the western world is, how bad we all are and how great the future Caliphate will be, but the reality is that the average person, whether Muslim or not, isn't buying what you are selling.

We look after our people better than most of the world. We help our neighbours, and when ever there is a international disaster, Australia is ALWAYS there to help.

We are a Sovereign nation, in every respect, only a complete idiot would we are not. So, well I guess I just described you didn't I???

I guess you are representative of why the Muslim world has so few Universities, because you cannot see the need for science and education, but that is the very reason we live in a wealthy and rich country.

We do not need anything from the middle east you poor uneducated and misguided fool, we export energy minerals and food, so WE DO NOT LUST AFTER THE OIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST !, However, we send grain to the middle east, which would probably starve if we did not feed you.

The Middle East would have no clothes, food or vehicles if not for the West. If there was no oil in the middle east you would probably find the population herding goats and living in mud huts

So I guess your comment shows why there is a need for education in the Muslim world.
