Australia's political crisis has escalated with the resignation of Kevin Rudd as Foreign Minister. In 2010, Rudd was removed as Prime Minister in an internal Labor Party coup orchestrated by current Prime Minister Julia Gillard and the Obama administration in Washington. Rudd will challenge Gilliard for the leadership of the Labor Party next week. It's unlikely that the Labor Party will survive this shock. However, there's no viable alternative as Tony Abbot and the Liberal/National coalition pursue the same policies as the current Labor government. Australia's entire political structure is on the verge of collapse.
