No Chinese troops on Australian soil: McClelland


au.news.yahoo.com

The Federal Government says Chinese troops will not be welcome in Australia to guard the Olympic torch relay as it passes through Canberra in late April.

China has reportedly asked for its army to provide the security after pro-Tibetan protesters disrupted the lighting of the torch in Greece earlier this week.

Attorney-General Robert McClelland says he is not aware of any official request from China, but says any offer of assistance would not be accepted.

"The short answer is no," he said.

"Australia takes responsibility for its own security, and that is the case whether we're dealing with a visiting dignitary from overseas, whether we're dealing with APEC, whether we're dealing with a national or international sporting event."

I hope they find out that China did not ask for their troops to escort it.

I guess something had to be said for the Government to come out and say what they said, however, i cannot believe the nerve of China (if they did) to actually ask whether their military to escort the flame around the country.

NO CHINESE TROOPS IN AUSTRALIA! Has no one read John Marsden? If Australia lets troops in it will start WWIII as China makes its move to take over Australia! China is the new Germany but worse they have nukes and more people in its military then most countries have in total population!

Unless of course you take into account the numerous US military and spy bases on our soil and any time one of those douchebags like Bush or Cheney comes to town.

I thought exactly of this when i posted and wondered whether i was being somewhat hypocritical, however, those US bases don't have their soldiers walking around doing the job of Australian soldiers.

That is where i made the distinction.
