    Real allies don't elect Left Wing governments and then cut and run on you.

    An excellent and hilarious thread so far, on so many levels.

    Keep up the good work, folks.

    It reminds me why I like CU so much. :D

    According to this article even the Australian troops themselves are ashamed of their government.

    Ashamed to wear uniform


    LOW-RISK missions assigned to the infantry in conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan have left soldiers "ashamed of wearing their Australian uniform" and made them a laughing stock among allies, say two senior officers who have spoken out against the Government and their military chiefs.

    The officers, writing separately in the Australian Army Journal, say giving all potentially offensive actions to Australia's special forces, including the SAS, has weakened morale and prompted many soldiers to question the future of the infantry.

    "In the opinion of many infantrymen, the lauding of their contributions to recent operations does not ring true," writes Major Jim Hammett, who has served in East Timor, Iraq, Somalia and Tonga. "Many within its ranks suspect that the role of the infantry has already been consigned to history … The ongoing inaction [in Iraq] … has resulted in collective disdain and at times near contempt by personnel from other contributing nations for the publicity-shrouded yet force-protected Australian troops."




    "Institutional cowardice" … Major Jim Hammett.

    So now you're slagging off our military, Gator?

    As for government...its called DEMOCRACY, you jerk.

    Real allies don't elect Left Wing governments and then cut and run on you.
    The Australian people will elect who we choose and when and we dont give two rats hoots whether you like it or not. As a sovereign nation we will do with our internal politics as we please.

    And I may also add that YOUR Democrat idiot Gore shilled for Rudd, so if anyone is responsible for this mess, you would be well suited to look to your OWN shores and the man who interfered in the electoral process of a sovereign nation.

    He was elected with the help of an American senator. Care to comment?

    BTW if BaracK Obama is elected in November, I will be PERSONALLY be overjoyed to post a picture of a crow pie, a fork, your quote from this thread and the words

    CHOW DOWN, GATOR.

    Remove that and apologise.

    NOW.

    Edit: never mind, i did it for you.

    First and last warning, LP, insulting the military is against CU rules and will be dealt with accordingly.

    It was offensive. Sad to see this type junk on the board. The topic could have been brought up initially in a different, less offensive manner, simply as a news article, not with the "chickenshit" topic. Some moral clarity. As for LogansPapa's remark, consider the source.

    Chill, Sonna. Please read the remarks here. You'll see most of the comments are against the premise of this thread. The Australians are not chickenshits, and certainly you aren't. Don't fall for the shit stirring attempts.

    Not surprised that Herr Gator would post something like that.
