Reporting from the other side

Why is a leading Age journalist travelling to the US as a guest of the world's number one military contractor?

Brendan Nicholson filed this report on Saturday about Australia's role in the US-led missile defence system. Propaganda is too kind a word for the article.

What next? Reporters travelling gratis to the headquarters of Halliburton and discovering the finer points of efficient accounting?

Don't you love the technotalk, so we can relive our childhood fascination with military things. Great that the US thinks our technology's good too. So we're an equal partner in this - as we shell out a few Billion for all their mate's hardware in the next few years.

More billions being poured into a missile system that never worked. Do a Goole fo "missile defense failure" and yo get 1.8 million hits.

Must be an important search term then. I tried "banana phone" for comparison and got 3,690,000. What's your point?
