In this thread recently it was suggested that, even though Australia DID
NOT admit to any such thing, we should go ahead and accept that they did
and essentially promote the idea.

Maybe we need another think.

I can easily imagine this scenerio:

After we spend six months spinning our wheels, a smug Pentagon (or
other) spokesman calls a press conference and passes out the actual
statement, then sighs.  "Go ahead and read the Australian statement. 
Obviously our critics didn't.  I don't know what we can do with such
scatterbrains, always falling for what they want to hear instead of
hearing what's actually there."
