Friends, this photograph symbolizes the struggle taking place between a predator crocodile (America) and an immature baby elephant (Australia).
On the side of the crocodile are all Australian politicians who seem to have lost any vestige of maturity or vision or statesmanship. Collectively, they seem to think that America is like the Sugar Plum Fairy: all pretty and innocent and overflowing with the milk of human kindness.
The reality is that the crocodile is holding the tiny trunk, but not too tightly, and gently pulling the baby back towards the deeper water where, eventually, the crocodile will have all the advantages which will result in a banquet for many days.
The reality is that the crocodile, like America, is a cruel, greedy creature which preys upon the young and frail and unsuspecting without hesitation.
Its only thought is for its own survival which is guaranteed the bigger it gets. It never, never thinks about its own mortality, only about the joy of feasting and killing.
Will the citizens of Australia ever wake up and demand that their country become neutral, align itself with no one, least of all the world’s biggest warmonger?
It’s a work in progress. But the outcome does not look good.
P.S. For those who are anxious, the baby elephant’s mother arrived on the scene and, after battling with the crocodile, eventually saved her baby.
Unfortunately, Australia doesn’t have a mother, only idiot politicians! And most of its citizens are willfully blind.
