Dear Editor,

What will US President Donald Trump (and America) now do for America’s staunchest military ally and one of the world’s great democracies: Australia?

We Australians are so very severely under attack by China financially (trying to cripple our economy by hobbling our exports to China); politically (interfering with/adversely influencing our universities, etc.); diplomatically (trying to bludgeon us into silence over the Covid-19 investigation); and indirectly, militarily (by trying to drive a wedge between the US and Australia).

Reality: the West (including Australia) has, in effect, exported its working-class people’s jobs to China! Will America, led by Donald Trump, now give Australia even more of the action: trade and military-equipment-building-wise, to come to the rescue of everyday Aussie people (those Aussies always making up the majority of Australia’s military; always “brothers and sisters-in-arms” with US military men and women)?

Will America lead the world in assisting India get up-to-speed administratively and financially to take up the import and export slack of a now national-growth-declining and increasingly pariah state, China?

You, there, President Donald Trump (or, you’re not within cooee of our being bashed by Peking…Aussies)?

    Hey Howard, If we can reelect Trump, we’ll grant your wish.

    However, there are many obstacles, some I think are insurmountable, as both our countries have been neutered by those who buy into the hype of “peaceful and misunderstood”.

    Here in the USA, thousands arrive dally, welcomed by our Department of Homeland Security, Catholic Charities and, of course, C.A.I.R. and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Some say it is possible to fix stupid, but I have as yet to see any proof of that, because some awfully dumb people keep on electing the same politicians year after year who promise the same empty promises, such as “Someday government schools – public education – will teach your child how to read and maybe even learn how to think.”
