I understand the need to look at the other sides point of view-as america, australia is a melting pot of the worlds people, and doubtless what happens someone i know or myself have some history relating from that country or area- take Zimbabwe- half my family comes from there and were booted out after the mugabe regime took over- and i see both sides- a need for self government- and that maybe it should not have happened as fast as it did or with a different leader. but as the best bit of advise i ever received was there is black and white and all shades of grey!
I'm an Air Force brat born and raised in the US. I find it funny how often people think I'm from somewhere else. I've been confused for an Aussie, a Canuck, a Brit, and someone from mainland Europe or Scandanavia (as often or more often than the US!).
A lot of that is, I think, that even though I have plenty of pride in the US, I try not to have an Ameri-centric view of the world, trying to keep myself abreast of what's going on beyond our borders and be familiar with foreign history, geography, and foreign affairs. I try to look at US-XYZ relations from the viewpoint of XYZ, not just the US.
As for what I do for a living, I'm a technical support manager at a software company.
