Australia and New Zealand is not a Choice?

We were part of the Forces Backing the Invasion of Iraq? And many other Battles involving America?

Maybe some Home work?

What is ANZUS?

Australia is one of America's Greatest Allies, Mate.

Edit.

Honestly? why should an Aussie Post "Other" that would be an Insult to our Country!

A simlple read of the ANZUS Treaty can reveal why New Zealand did not get involved in Iraq

It was not in the Asian Area.

Our Leader at the time extended it to include Worldwide.

Not sure how many are going to pick China or Japan there's only small numbers of members from each country. I voted for UK by the way

China: 541 members
Japan: 249 members

Although most likely they will all have a English QWERTY Keyboard, do you think they come on often?

The Spaniards have more members than China (565 Spanish Members) considering China has a population of 1.4 billion and Spain has around 40 million quite a difference :flowers:
Russia has even less than Japan, There are 176 Russian Members according to that list, I really doubt we'll get a vote for Russia unless they are new users and see this.

But since the list is based on chosen countries in your Profile I guess all those might not be there.

Just thought I might change my Country in my profile, time to search for a Country that isn't being used :thumbsup:

/Note: In a poll post here one can only have 10 options to choose from.

As buddy215 noted this is a more accurate count > http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...amp;#entry54350

I would have added more countries if more choices were available. :thumbsup:

I am looking for like details on the country itself more than just the country.

Since I am trying to complete the Bleeping Computer Wikipedia article, I just wanted information on diversity.

As the post quoted says - near world wide = 264 Countries.

Others can google those for such information?

This was not to discourage others from posting their info, just if they don't post such in their profile or here, then the results are inaccurate. Only the Admin can compile such info.

Given the figures above

Australia: 6845 members
New Zealand: 1175 members


I very much doubt that any one of those would like to Vote as "Other"
