A reasonably educated person trying to make sense of it all, and a little tormented as a result. Thinking aloud, mostly.

Which Australian Prime Minister said this?
Here's a story that Kim Beazley recounts, when an Australian PM met Barack Obama in the White House.
“Well, Mr President, I don’t actually have a list of complaints; I know most people who come to this office have a list of complaints. I’ve got nothing to complain about to you. Others come with a list of things that they want from you. We don’t want anything from you.”
“But I want to say one thing. I think you’re about to get into a lot of trouble in the Middle East. And when you do, I want you to understand this. We are going to be with you and we are going to be with you in numbers.”
