Any guesses as to why we have to bring in the forces, nothing to do with Islam then.



it's so that Turdball and Mutton can claim they're doing something.

REPORTER: The condition of the budget will not be an excuse for breaking promises?

TONY ABBOTT: Exactly right. We will keep the commitments that we make.

No body believes they do anything anymore, least of all themselves.

If you use first names the soldiers emotions come into play and they may know a will from school , maybe a relative or footie player they followed anyway it's not very military . You need to watch more action flicks.

Because it looks better to be seen to be doing something, no matter how misguided, than it is to be seen to be doing nothing, is an old political adage.    Roll Eyes

Malcolm 's not doing much then. North Korea executed five senior security officials for making false reports that "enraged" leader Kim Jong Un, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Monday. The five were killed with anti-aircraft guns, the National Intelligence Service said in a private briefing to lawmakers

The Army has set procedures for most situations.  In this case, they are applying standard operating procedures and GRIT (Group, Range, Indication, Target) to tell their "Operatives" (what ever happened to plain old "Trooper" or "Soldier?) what to do, when to do it and what they are intended to shoot at...

The army should get their M777 lightweight towed howitzers out.
Many problems solved. How long would the shells take to travel 12km?

It beats me. It's bullshit of course.

It's going to mean having army personnel hanging around our metropolitan police stations waiting for a terrorist incident to occur.

What's the point when all that's needed at the police stations are racks of sniper rifles, canisters of tear gas, stun grenades, etc. ... and the police being competent in the use of these things.

The decisions surrounding the Lindt Cafe Man Monis event all hinged on whether or not he had a suicide bomb on him.

Herr Bert should be appointed Australian anti-terrorism Czar. They would seek refuge at the farthest point from Australia to avoid the monotonous blather from Herr Bert.

Correct.

It's bullshit with a cherry on top.

The reason for doing a suicide is the pilgrim-class ticket to top heaven or Firdaws .  Only the most pious get in and bopping a cop may not be enough .  But shooting a soldier is the way to go. (Maybe equal to zapping an armed woman ).  Troops at a siege may increase the amount of shooting by the terrorist / customer .

The most glaring fraud with the anti-terrorism strategies is that while it's all tough-talk and posturing with guns, and soldiers standing stiffly to attention in uniform at one end of the spectrum, at the other end it's all a political funk that sees our politicians ingratiating with the Muslim Community to the extent of pretending that Islam has absolutely nothing to do with any of it.

Islam is exonerated from any blame.

And our politicians dare not reduce the influx of Muslims, let alone put a halt to it.

The whole pretentious pantomime is a deceptive fraud designed to pick up votes while at the same time being careful not to offside the Muslim community.

It's a good thing they have been called in, it's a bugger it had to come to this, a simple solution in the early days would have been to shoot any muslims from entering.

Bad idea. The only troops that should ever be used inside Au during peacetime are the engineers during natural disasters, they should not be deployed against people.
