Finally - Army to takeover mgt of terror seiges
Jul 17th, 2017 at 2:16pm
 
Malcolm Turnbull has just done something extremely meaningful

He is authorising the Army to takeover managing terrorist sieges

Nothing whatsoever against the Police team who broke the Man Monis siege but management wise it was a debacle  Ex Commissioner Scipione and Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn should hang their heads  shame at the coroner's finding on the Man Monis siege

Now the Army's S.A.S. will likely be involved in such a scenario and those blokes don't f...k around

This is a great turn of events and will make our Nation much more secure

Let the Police stick to Policing and let expert groups like the S.A.S. manage sieges, it's what they're good at

PS The Police on the ground did a brilliant job when they were finally allowed to do it from hapless masters

Pretty weak , it's just the Army . The RAAF gets new planes but won't have tactical operations on targets .  Navy is within range in capital cities or the bush to 166kms.

Seems like a fit, still working on your post which has what to do with my thread's subject

Terror is a made up term to fit an agenda.
A bully within a kindergarten is a terror siege.

This is just the right's next goosestep in making Australia a military dictatorship.

That's nice, Red, but we never understood the Martin Place siege to be terrorism at the time. I doubt the army is going to involve itself in every siege involving a lone gunman.

But what do you mean by finally? Apart from Man Monis, we've never had a terrorist siege in Australia - if that is indeed what this was.

When you support goose stepping to a military takeover, you don't deserve a break.

The army is for killing unarmed civilians in other countries ... not Australia.

- Riddler, was it an agenda when Muslims ran amok in London murdering people with knives?

Yes guess it was....an I.S.I.S. Agenda

Sure, ____ , but they could make themselves useful. They do a bit of disaster recovery every now and then. Why not send them in when a plane gets hijacked or something?

It hasn't happened in Australia yet, but the army has plenty of time on its hands to train up.

The Riddler  a.k.a. -  is living in fairyland and sees our own Army as some sort of Nazi threat

Our S.A.S. is a highly trained disciplined unit which would I dare say would have controlled the Man Monis siege from a different point of view entirely to the Management of the NSW Police which handled the whole thing is something akin to the Keystone Cops

The Police on the ground knew how to do their job it was at the 'top' and right at the 'top' that we were subjected to glaring incompetence which was born out in the Coroner's findings into the seige
