Chinese general threatens Australia

From the SMH:

Australia has to find a godfather sooner or later,'' Mr Song told the Herald yesterday. ''Australia always has to depend on somebody else, whether it is to be the 'son' of the US or 'son' of China. 
''[It] depends on who is more powerful and based on the strategic environment.'' 
Mr Song said Australia was dependant on exporting iron ore to China ''to feed itself'' but that it had not done enough to engage with the middle kingdom. 
''Frankly, it has not done well politically,'' Mr Song said.

Good. Now we know who our friends are.
