123 Meme c/o Subadei

Blogfriend Subadei has tagged me with his 123 Meme ...

The rules are simple. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages), open the book to page 123, find the fifth sentence, post the next three sentences and tag five (5) people.

The Partnership: The inside story of the U.S.-Australian Alliance under Bush and Howard, by Greg Sheridan, pp. 123

"An endless series of Indonesian military visitors was invited to Australia and they were always showed the best we had to offer, never told about our logistics problems or our recruitment and retention difficulties. The subliminal message was simple - don't tangle with these folks because they have a lot of firepower and they are very good soldiers. In his very person and bearing, Molan was part of this messsage."

Otto, that's interesting. I didn't know Greg Sheridan the journalist (I presume it's the same guy) was also a book author. May have to check out what he's got on offer.

By the way, for a random snip, yours was pretty meaningful. Ever read any trash? LOL
