He would already know by now whats in the Wikkileaks info provided by USA (He and Obama are particularly chummy),
lol, Obama hardly knows Rudd exists..
What do you base that statement on, one meeting???
I'm in australia also..
Rudd was recently kicked out by his own party because he is unstable IMO..
Then his party, Labour, lost the election..
Yes I know, they are still in Government but that's only due to backroom deals/bribes with independants..
So the fact is we have a Government which more than 50% of the population voted against..
And that's the voice of the people???
The facts are that Rudd was taken out by the US deliberately, for several reasons - not the least being that he had the audacity to want to extract a 40% resources tax on profits from US owned corporations - the audacity of the man!

I think your assessment is very wrong.
Sure a carrier has a great damage potential. But reading you I feel that you believe the Chinese are completely defenceless and 'won't know what hit them' until all their key infrastructures are gone. Please
Trust me, China has eyes on every US carriers.
The moment one gets too close and something suspect is launched towards China, they will throw everything they have. Included subs that the US navy can't even detect, the largest airforce on this planet and all the carrier killers missiles they are proud of.
A carrier is a big glass cannon, a prime target sitting duck. If China and the US are ever at war, they will be taken out first, you can be sure of it.
assessment is wrong. the US has the largest navy and airforce.edit on 28-11-2010 by asperetty because: (no reason given)
The People's Liberation Army Air Force is the largest military air force in the world with over 6,000 military airplanes and over 300,000 active personnel. The new PLAAF is updating its inventory of MiG-21 and MiG-19 copies with planned purchases of the advanced Russian made Sukhoi SU-27 FLANKER series and the newly developed J-10 strike fighter.
If I can try to clarify the diplomatic & Korean language nuance -- foreign ministry comment here is a de facto rejection to resume talks.
So Seoul & Tokyo lean negative on China's call for emergency talks. Now, over to Washngton to weigh in.
KNOW THE FACTS: North Korea lost 30% of its population as a result of US bombings in the 1950s
The World is at a dangerous crossroads.
The US is seeking a pretext to wage war on North Korea.
North Korea is said to constitute a threat to Global Security.
From the Truman Doctrine to Obama. The history of the 1950s Korean confirms that extensive war crimes were committed against the Korean people. As confirmed by the statement of General Curtis Lemay:
"Over a period of three years or so we killed off - what - twenty percent of the population."
North Korea lost thirty percent of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s. US military sources confirm that 20 percent of North Korea's population was killed off over a three period of intensive bombings:
"After destroying North Korea's 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, "Over a period of three years or so we killed off - what - twenty percent of the population."1 It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 - 9 million people during the 37-month long "hot" war, 1950 - 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerance of another."
During The Second World War the United Kingdom lost 0.94% of its population, France lost 1.35%, China lost 1.89% and the US lost 0.32%. During the Korean war, North Korea lost 30 % of its population.
These figures of civilian deaths in North Korea should also be compared to those compiled for Iraq by the Lancet Study (John Hopkins School of Public Health). The Lancet study estimates a total of 655,000 Iraqi civilian deaths, following the US led invasion (March 2003- June 2006).
