Abstract Australians are famously uninterested in foreign affairs. The current Prime Minister, John Howard, came to power in 1996 with plans to focus on domestic affairs and make Australians feel 'relaxed and comfortable' about themselves and their place in the world. Hopes that such a goal was achievable, or that Australia could remain insulated from the conflicts and convulsions that have gripped other parts of the world were brutally snuffed out by the bombing in Bali. As Australians attempt to come to terms with finding themselves exposed to random, unfathomable acts of violence, a major domestic debate has been sparked about the adequacy of Australia's preparedness for such events and the basis of future foreign policy, especially toward the United States and its more immediate neighbors in East Asia.
