    Australians' new nightmare: The US

    From the Sydney Morning Herald: Our new nightmare: the United States of America

    The Australians Speak: 2005 survey, commissioned by the Lowy Institute for International Policy, found 57 per cent of Australians were "very worried" or "fairly worried" about the external threat posed by both US foreign policy and Islamic extremism. "We asked about a series of threats from the outside," said the institute's executive director, Allan Gyngell. "Most startling of all was the precise equivalence of Islamic fundamentalism and US foreign policy as a source of concern. "The question is whether this is a response to a particular administration or a broader cultural drifting apart." More than two-thirds - 68 per cent - said Australia took too much notice of the US in its foreign policy deliberations.
