hell. frozen.

We interrupt your travelogues to bring you shocking news.

I agree with John Howard on this one.

Slow down there, tiger, what's doing? The Solomons thing, I mean. Sending troops in to quell the unrest there was right a few years ago when they did it, and its right now. More importantly, the policy of committing resources to the south pacific in the interests of stabilising those countries, and the strategy of trying where possible to respect their sovereignty and only send troops when they request them, seem right on the money to me. Hats off also to Labour for not turning it into the politically expedient Iraq analogy that it could so easily (and mistakenly) be made to be.

Normal service will now be resumed.
