The question is how do you know what the America spy agencies are doing? Not a mindless ramble. Ba ...

thanks to the guy name Snowden~
and use your brain for once~

1. If whatever Snowden said is not true...(about US is spying everyone)...why US need to hunt him? If its not true then means Snowden is just excising his Freedom of Speech according to the LAW~
2. If its not true and US hunting him = NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH in US.
3. Since US hunting Snowden, then it means Snowden is correct~ = US IS SPYING EVERYONE = NO PRIVACY = NO FREEDOM

Either way US is sh1ting in his own pant...what an id.iot~

Oh, then why do the small potaoes stay participating in this unequal game of Bond?

The gain to th ...

The reasons are complex and not easy to cover in a book let alone a short post.

I think the answer to this is that Australia is part of the ANZUS Treaty which is a military treaty that's been around since 1951. Originally it was a full blown three way defence pact until 1984 when NZ Prime Minister David Lange banned US nuclear powered or armed warships from NZ territorial waters and after the incident with the USS Buchanan the USA suspended the treaty with NZ. Australia and the USA have kept the pact in place ever since.

Another part of the issue is probably that Australia feels quite insecure as a nation, this doesn't show itself in public but it's something you can spot if you know how to read the local politicians and their views as well as much of the general public. If anything most Australians are as easy to fool as the average American and with the media here concentrated in to essentially 3-4 organisations most Australians are kept in a pretty blissful state of ignorance about what's really happening outside of Australia. Sad but true.

This is by no means a complete answer, just a taste of the issues. It's hideously complex and convoluted and has it's roots in the fabric of Australian society.
