    Kevin Rudd is ex-PM of Australia and a China specialist. Although I don't agree with everything, its still a very thoughtful article which I recommend for people who have time to go through. I have quoted the concluding section below. He is regarded as a Sinophile in Australia

    Well, Kevin may be an austrilian who can speack fluent chinese.
    However, he is just too naive to be a politician: only a louder voice cannot satisfy any rising power. Market, resources, financial influence are the key words here.
