AFP ready for WW3

The front page of this mornings The Australian has an article about the AFP  being ready for transfer unrest.  It has a pic of ammo boxes supposedly for police at Christmas Island. There, in all its glory is a box clearly stencilled “.50 cal”and whereas, from personal experience, I can vouch for .50 cal machine guns being very good for riot control I don’t think the Australian public are quite ready for the outcome.  Bits of bodies all over Christmas Island chewed up by a burst would certainly grab even Julian Burnside’s attention. I would believe 5.56mm for their Steyrs and 9mm for pistols but I think the .50 cal would be resupply for the RAN patrol boats which raises the question – why would they need resupply?
