By Joe Ludwig, published 20/2/2006

Trade is essential to our island nation and successful trade canít occur without a secure supply chain and trading environment.

Joe,
Great stuff old mate, sadly the majority of the general public are more interested in what will happen on the 29 March, when No Workchoice legislation comes into effect. I don't expect pretend Labor people such as yourself, to be all that interested though.

Which is basically why I am not too interested in anything you have to say.

I read this article and am once again reminded of the challenges faced by my country and yours. Border protection and successful trade.

Currently in the U.S. we've traded successfully with China to the tune of billions and billions of dollars. China now controls one of our largest west coast ports, Long Beach.

All of our manufacturing jobs have been outsourced to less affluent countries where labor is cheaper and the standard of living is greatly reduced.

Now the Arabs are poised to control all of our east coast ports.

With our neighbors to the south angry and invading our southern borders at a rate of over a thousand a day. The Border Patrol is understaffed and overworked.

I'm afraid if we ever really piss off the Canadians, we're screwed.

I ask the question for both our countries. What is government thinking, and whose interest do they really serve?

Patty Jr,
Haven't you yanks pissed off the Canadaians yet, goodness me, you have managed to piss off everyone else, including us, especially with your "babble-brain" President George Wabba Bush, who is unable to string a sentenance together. How frightening to have someone like this in charge of "weapons of mass destruction>"
