Australian officials on high alert after terror warning.
"Authorities are on high alert after the United States warned Australia of a possible threat by terrorists to blow up power stations and electrical transmission lines.
The warning, relayed by Washington to federal Attorney-General Daryl Williams, was received by several countries.
But Mr Williams said while there was no specific information (Mmmm, I seem to have heard that phrase trotted out a fair few times lately.) about a strike on Australian soil, no country could afford to be complacent."
Excellent stuff from those clever chaps in intelligence. A "possible" threat warning, received by "several countries", containing "no specific information".
Mr Williams is also taking seriously the phone call from President Cry Wolf Bush warning all Australians that the sky was about to fall in and that America was the only nation powerful enough to stop the disaster ... but only if Australians give him succour (especially of the sort that is born every minute) in his Holy War against the notorious astronomical terrorist Saddam Bin Steve Hawking who is believed to be developing string theories of mass destruction.
