Turnbull on the Paris obscenity
Mr Turnbull made it clear that military action was crucial to success and signalled that he might consider more Australian troops being deployed there in roles such as peacekeeping.That sentence is a contradiction in terms as Peacekeepers enter the combat zone after peace has been declared, and that is not happening anytime soon. The ABC news say world leaders vow to destroy ISIS. Our guy says we'll send peacekeepers. Embarrassing! Personally, I was disappointed that RAAF Hornets weren't allowed out of their bunkers to fly alongside French Fighter Bombers in their missions overnight.
Dennis Shanahan talking about Abbott
His willingness to send troops to Iraq for training and fighter-bombers into Syria were of a piece with his view the US should do more in Syria to defeat “the death cult” militarily in the field, to stop terror attacks in Australia and elsewhere. Abbott’s view was that Daesh had to be destroyed in Syria and Iraq.And all Turnbull offers is Peacekeepers. Even civilians will understand that Peacekeepers aren't the answer and that to win a war, and it is a war, the West need to destroy ISIS where they live. They need to destroy their lines of communications and their logistics. Find out where they are getting their AK 47/54s and destroy the factories. They need to track their finances, take the money and attack any nation that finances them and they need to close down their access to the internet. The West need to conduct all-out-war or suffer a litany of Paris events. Abbott's view will prevail while Turnbull's initial response will be hopefully forgotten as he gains some experience. Wishful thinking I know, but I'm trying to be positive. We need to stand with Paris, not pray for them. If you must pray then wait until we are burying ISIS troops and then pray for their souls to be eternally condemned.
