Friends, the image shows George Bush and John Howard meeting privately at the APEC Summit. George is looking benignly down on John who, as befits his miniature status, is adopting a submissive posture. Later, George, at a press conference, licked John all over (slobbered all over him might be a better description). John's tail wagged majestically.
These two members of the world's biggest militaristic hunting pack did make some arms agreements. Apparently Australia may get some access to secret U.S. arms technology and there is talk of even more military co-operation and even the storage of American military hardware on Australian soil. I don't know why we don't just hoist the Stars and Stripes and be done with it!George also made loud barking noises about his happiness with John's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan (which was in spite of strong opposition from most Australians) and expressed his belief that John could win the coming election from behind (although John, as the image clearly shows, is keeping his behind well hidden as if he senses danger close by).
George also mentioned John's courage which, though it has been untested in a war zone thus far, is clearly evident in the image.
The APEC Summit is underway! I'll keep you posted.
