Imagine, if you will, that China just announced its plans to put 2,500 troops in Belize.
Just this weekend, I was looking at Belize as a place to retire. Real estate is cheap, tax laws are friendly and there's that lax Caribbean attitude toward sources of income.
I shall be eating sautéed chrysanthemums in Surinam now..
Totally different IOZ, as China doesn't have a leadership role in Central America.
Nah, there are no Chinese interests leading the redevelopment of the Canal Zone...
The U.S. would most likely unite with Iran to wipe the Chinese from the map. We are all Iranians now. Yes we can.
I guess IOZ is referring to this: http://news.yahoo.com/obama-australia-expected-boost-military-ties-063250410.html
People's Republic, FUCK YEAH!
What the fuck are you talking about? The chinaman is not the issue here, Dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude.
A recipe relayed by Joey Randall.ONION CHRYSANTHEMUMS~ Delicious treat adapted from an old SUNSET MAGAZINE clipping. As cut onions bake, they soften and open like flowers. ~ 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil coarse salt, freshly ground cracked pepper, and cayenne1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (dark or white)1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, walnuts or pecanschopped fresh rosemary, thyme, and chives Peel onions; trim tops and root ends if needed to sit flat.Set onion on root end. From top, cut through middle of each onion to 1/2 inch from bottom. Repeat 10-12 cuts (1/2 to 3/4 inches apart).Place onion, cut side up in 9x13-inch pan. Drizzle evenly with oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.Bake, covered, in 400-degree oven until onions are very tender when pierced in center, about 1 hour.Uncover. Sprinkle evenly with vinegar, toasted nuts and herbs to taste. Bake until onion tips are lightly browned, 10-15 minutes longer. Spoon pan juices over onions before serving. Delicious with grilled steak. (4-6 servings)
It is debatable whether strengthening and expanding military alliances is a suitable move at a time when we face a global economic downturn and when promoting development has become the consensus and the focus of the international community. Which is to say, Americans will just leverage our more productive covilization to win roadbuilding contracts in Africa and Brazil and figure to outcompete the bellicose Chinapersons in the field of commerce.
Due to a slip of the fingers, the first ingredient was accidentally omitted in the previous recipe - namely,4-6 (6-8 oz.) red or yellow onions
Dig if you will a pique shore!
Finally, Woomera will see the economic revitalization it so desperately deserves.
Tie me kangaroo down sport.

This would be like the Chi-coms announcing they're putting 2,500 troops in Belize if they already had almost 30K troops in Mexico and a few dozen thousand PLAN squids in Newfoundland. And visited NYC every other year or so with the Kustenov just for shits and giggles
ioz, somebody already imagined the chinese w/2500 troops in belize: it's called the remake of "red dawn."WOLVERINES!!!!
First "Karate Kid," now "Red Dawn." Can't these young punks come up with their OWN iconic shitty movies?
Wait, they remade Red Dawn?!?! Who the fuck did we fight? The Cubans?
Oh, apparently it's North Korea. Worthy fucking adversary, dude.
And I'm sure the Australians will be thrilled when one of their new "guests" gets drunk and rapes a local girl, or commits some other crime, and they realize they have no jurisdiction over U.S. soldiers living in their country.
"The jingo ate your baby...."
Just a couple minor points:1)IOZ no doubt intended the reference to the notionally Australian Outback Steakhouse's Bloomin' Onion which Mrs. Farmer picked up on with her Chrysanthemum Onions recipe. I just want to point out that because it is NOT deep fried, the present recipe is MUCH better for your arteries and waistline. 2)I believe Joe need be less concerned about the impact of the Yank soldiers on the local populace in Australia. Yanks and Ozzies are VERY similar culturally - except for the accent, I think more so than either country is to Canada. Look at Olivia Newton-John, for example.
MCPhD,Their start as penal colonies for the same world power would maybe have to do something with the similarities?Ach, where is inkberrow's obligatory rant on biology is destiny?Capt'n Obvious
I found Ozzies to be even more obnoxious than Americans, myself, but a bit more laid back.
I'll have none of this moral equivalency hocus-pocus eclipsing our vital strategic national interests and strengthening the ties in the Anglosphere, which, by moving our marines around the globe will help to step up our commitment to keeping... the... you know; the... you know - the boats sailing... trade routes.... um... multilateral training for.... uh,.... pffft * (dissapears in a magic puff, appearance of hideous tentacled monster, roaring : "ME GET TO PUT TROOPS ANYWHERE AND SMASH AND TAKE WHAT I WANT - SUBMIT OR PERISH")
I found Ozzies to be even more obnoxious than AmericansWho were you hanging out with - Ivan Milat?
Oh,. you know him too?
Cap'n Obvious---Contrary to persistent belief, I've never once uttered a "Bell Curve"/Biology is Destiny rant here, nor even seriously broached the subject. It's an urban legend.On to suburban legends (and socio-biological destiny?), King Tebow is 4-1 as a starter.
Chinese are far more practical e.g. Cuban oil platform
