Comments on Joe Kelly “Julia Gillard urged to back new Asia order and embrace China's leadership in the region”, 26/04/2011, http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/foreign-affairs/julia-gillard-urged-to-back-new-asia-order-and-embrace-chinas-leadership-in-the-region/story-fn59nm2j-1226044999397
Both security experts have a point each.
It is interesting that Gillard chose to visit Korea on Anzac day, given that Korea has had nothing to do with Anzac whatsoever.
If Gillard deliberately thought that Australia had participated the Korea war and that that was a good reason to spend that day in Korea, then that would not sit very nicely with her subsequent visit to China, given China was on the other side of that war as Mr Medcalf mentioned.
It is another Gillard's mystery decisions.
And she is good at making those decisions, even though few people would understand her - intelligent or rushing blood in the head?
