Australia joins the UN security council
Australia raced ahead of Luxembourg and Finland in voting at UN headquarters to win membership of the UN Security Council.
A triumphant Foreign Minister Bob Carr told reporters in the UN lobby: "It's always good to see Australia win - and this is a big, juicy, decisive win."

Australia's stint on the Security Council will begin on January 1 and will last for two years

Interesting, i wonder if Australia will make a difference and "vote with their own mind" of if they will kowtow to the USA for the next 2 years.

Its a great responsibility and will make us step up our level of personal responsibilty with how well/poorly the world is run.
