I live in Brisbane and our daily newspaper is the Murdoch-owned �Courier Mail�. Its headline today is �Bravehearts set sail� -- reporting that Australian troops have just left to join U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf readying for war with Iraq. I wonder how the N.Y. Times would have reported the story? �Troops depart amid controversy�, perhaps. The �Courier Mail� also reports that our Prime Minister has said that Australia would join the U.S. regardless of the U.N. It makes me proud to be an Australian.
