Stop your nonsense, Pragmatist. You aren't a Pragmatist-you're an idealist blind to reality.
Australia and New Zealand are the 2 superpowers in the Pacific. Many Australians (right next door to us) have no clue about anything about PNG. PNG isn't mentioned all that often in the Aussie newspapers because frankly, we're samting natings.
If we're hardly mentioned in Australia (except for our bad deeds), then do you think anyone else in the world has ever heard of us? Hardly. I doubt if Hillary Clinton knew anything about us before she was briefed just before arriving at JAcksons.
