Just a tad late Another day, another song

For defence, it’s all a war zone

May 19th, 2009 at 07:15pm

I was browsing Mark Parton’s blog today and was amused by Mark’s spot-on take on the kangaroo cull in Majura:

The problem with Defence, with all respect to them, is that they always seem to believe they’re in a war. They love their cloak and dagger stuff.
[..]
I don’t actually find it difficult to believe that Mike Kelly wasn’t told by his own department that the roo cull at Majura had already begun. The shooting started on May 5….they didn’t bother to tell Mike, who is the Federal Parliamentry Defence Secretary till the following day.

They were probably doing another security check on him at the time…..because he might be a spy.

There’s a story which I would love to share with you about Defence’s cloak-and-dagger approach to even the simplest things, but alas, a non-disclosure agreement prevents me from doing so. Instead, I’ll just recommend that you click on the link above and read the rest of Mark’s article.

    If they armed the kangaroos with automatic weapons so they could shoot back, it would be great training for the troops headed for Afghanistan!

    Better still, they could arm the kangaroos with automatic weapons and send them to Afghanistan …
