Embedded in a new world order
'The Australian Government has dismissed as "a straw man" the idea that the Bush Administration is planning to turn its military might to the task of regime change in other nations with repressive regimes and leaders no less odious than Saddam.'

The neocon takeover of Washington and the Bush doctrine of 'preemptive war' is the biggest foreign policy issue in the world, the most important development in years. It is characteristic both of the Howard government and of its totally ineffective opposition that this issue could be dismissed as a 'straw man' and the government can get away with it.
