TRADE DEALINGS WITH THE USA

Blane Stonley, Cowan – You echoed my contribution to SMH Letters (22/2 – Not published) wherein I begged our Government to beware:  Don’t be flattered Malcolm – look twice at any scheme with the USA that would involve us in money and/or trade …and then …walk away.  The robber barons of America (Vanderbilts, etc.) did not make their money out of railways, etc. by giving away anything at all.
And so it came to pass that many times in the past – our great friend and ally showed us the value of their friendship, weighed the advantages to themselves – and sold us “down the river”.
Will we ever wake up?

I read a comment recently – “the USA doesn’t have allies – they have interests”
