The Null Device

John Howard has made the first announcement that Australia could go to war. It's likely that Australia will declare that it has been attacked (under the ANZUS treaty, much as NATO has done), and Howard would be more enthusiastic than many Europeans about committing all the troops that can be raised to the war. (Btw, what would be required to bring in conscription in Australia; would it be a referendum or simply an act of Parliament?)
