No beds

There are apparently no beds in ward 2 at Peter Mac, so I need to wait till tomorrow to be admitted. How sad!

The ‘news’ that Australia’s military presence in Iraq is linked to securing access to oil is deeply disturbing for a number of reasons.

For a start, it makes a lie of the Howard governments continued protestations that we’re not there for such a reason. One lie among a series of lies that we’re now expected to swallow. Secondly, to put the lives of the Iraqi people, not to mention the lives of military and civilian personnel in Iraq, at risk for such a reason is incredibly cynical and mercenary. We ought to hang our heads in shame.
