This Is Funny

I put these two questions:

Should the Washington Post have a "World Columnist" who does not know that it is Canberra, not Sydney, that is the capital of Australia?

Should a man who thinks that the capital of Australia is Sydney be pontificating about foreign affairs in any forum?

Still the Colossus: Robert Kagan: In East Asia, meanwhile, U.S. relations with Japan grow ever closer as the Japanese become increasingly concerned about China and a nuclear-armed North Korea. China's (and Malaysia's) attempt to exclude Australia from a prominent regional role at the recent East Asian summit has reinforced Sydney's desire for closer ties.
