The nation's first ever ABC survey shows overwhelming confidence & optimism in Afghanistan's future. Despite considerable ongoing hardships, 87% of 1,039 adults polled support the ousting of the Taleban with 77% believing the country heading in right direction. Thank you, Mr Bush! Thank you, Armed Forces! No thanks to Keith Locke, the Greens, the protesters & peaceniks who opposed the Taleban overthrow.

Stupid Cow Alert: Another obsessive feminist with a 'rape fetish'. Andrea Black, from Rape Crisis moaning that Akld billboards depicting prison assault might upset male ex-cons.
"it puts the blame on the victim, with the message that it is your own fault if you take illegal drugs and end up in prison being raped"If you take drugs-It's Your Own Fault!

And why ANY sympathy for prison low-lifes (including rapists) in the first instance? And if so fragile as to be 'traumatised' by a freakin' billboard fergoodnessake! - there's no one to blame but yourself.
