I truly hope our leaders have learnt some lessons from previous mistakes.
I would hope, in this day and age, that the insufferable lessons from WW2 would still be a burning ember in the minds of the leaders who make our
I would also hope, that MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction), is still at the forefront of these leads thoughts.
I'm ex-Australian Army (Commando Regiment), and I can say if this all does turn to shi*, every single one of you will be drafted. I know the
Australian Army is stretched so thinly it's ridiculous - recruitment is at an all time low .... if we were to be invaded / engage with another
foreign enemy, we would definitely need to draft to survive.
However, I agree with some of the other posts - we have been "at the brink" on numerous occassions over the past few decades ... and fortunately the
leaders have taken a step back, and realised, before the line was crossed (think cuban missle crisis).
Let's hope, above all hope, that what's being portrayed in this post doesn't come to fruition.
If it does, head to the hills with a sturdy bolt action and wait for Armageddon.
