Our Prime Minister has stated that the Australian SAS are in position and ready to go when the command is given.
This means that the Coalition of the willing are ready to go after the final decision of the UN is given, which happens to be Friday week.
No more reprieves for Saddam this time.
Looks like Australia, The U.S.A. and Britain are the only countries that are willing to sacrifice stability in their own countries to achieve stability for the rest of the world.
This action in history relates to a child being smacked in public or disciplined. Some people oppose though the majority a for.

I don't think that they'll wait long and hope they don't but thats just my opinion. I saw on the news the major airport in Iraq is full of reporters and journalists on their way out, that's usually a good sign that something is coming real soon. The US has deployed 250,000 troops alone, not including the UK and Australia. I say the sooner the better, the last thing Suddam needs is more time to prepare and create more weapons and chemicals.

I am not trying to down play the severity of the situation in the Middle East, but here is an article that sounds just like Dubya's "scripted" address tonight:

US Warns War on Iraq May Start Before Christmas
by Andrew Buncombe in Washington

President Bush issued a tough new warning to Saddam Hussein yesterday as administration officials said that a war could begin before the end of the year.

In a series of Veterans' Day memorial services, Mr Bush said he was ready to take his country to war. Unless President Saddam Hussein fully disarmed, "America will lead a coalition to fully disarm him.

"I have no greater responsibility than protecting the American people. Should military action become necessary for our own security, I will commit the full force and might of the United States' military, and we will prevail," he said.

Colin Powell, the American Secretary of State, told CNN: "We're not going to wait until February to see whether Iraq is co-operating or not.''

The Iraqi leader began the process of deciding a formal response to the United Nations Security Council resolution, which calls on his government to provide free and unfettered access to weapons inspectors or else face "serious consequences". Iraq has until Friday to respond. If President Saddam rejects the resolution, Mr Bush is determined to act alone if necessary to punish him with massive military strikes.

Iraq's parliament gathered in a bellicose mood yesterday and dismissed the resolution as a document "packed with lies". To applause from the 250 deputies, the head of the assembly's foreign relations committee urged parliament to reject the UN resolution. The parliament's recommendation which is to be endorsed by the Revolutionary Command Council chaired by President Saddam is not expected until later today at the earliest.

Mr Bush said at a ceremony at Arlington Cemetery: "This great nation will not live at the mercy of any foreign plot or power. We will not permit a dictator who's used weapons of mass destruction to threaten America with chemical, biological or nuclear weapons." According to leaks in the American press at the weekend, Mr Bush has approved a battle plan involving a 250,000-strong force if Iraq fails to comply.

After Friday's deadline to accept the UN's terms and promise to comply, Iraq has until 8 December to give weapons inspectors a declaration of all its chemical, biological and nuclear programs.

Australia has deployed
6-8 F-18
2-3 C-130
707 Air Refeuling Tankers
200 SAS Elite Troops(Some of the toughest Mother F&*#ers you'll ever find)
1 or 2 Supply Ships
1 or 2 Destoyers and Criusers.

It doesn't sound like much though for a populaton of 19 Million people it's right on the border of what we can safely deploy with out compamising Internal Security.

We are a people divided by only accent and The Pacific Ocean.
We see our selves as the luck countries, we love peace and that's why people try to enter our countries illigally.
But we also believe that in order to achive peace, war is sometimes the only language people understand.
The only difference between The U.S. and Australia is that in order to establish your country, you guys had a war. We didn't and that's why it is harder for us to go to war.

the deadline for iraq to disarm or die is ten days from today, march 17th. this likely means that that is when the war will begin or will start a few days after. we all know it has to start some time, and now the time has come.

Looks like Australia, The U.S.A. and Britain are the only countries populated with sleeping zombies instead of human beings.

I totally agree. It is nice to see Australia helping US and GB. I would like to see that my country Slovenia would give more support to US.

Yeah, that's right, you guys started out as a British penal colony, right?


Only joking...No offense intended. After all, America today was originally started out as a British colony to which religious & political dissidents fled *before* we fought for our freedom...
Heh! The strongest world power on Earth today started as a bunch of "disagreeables"...Kind of ironic, huh?


In truth, I'm glad to see the Brits & Aussies willing to help us out...After all, we *do* have the same origins...
Welcome aboard!

I think you are right.
Something big is going to happen in world plotics.
The Abolishment of the U.N.?
I personally think that NATO is much more reliable when it comes to making tough decisions.
Maybe extend or restucture NATO membership?

The American people are never satisfied until a war comes along to put an end to their hunger.

Oh good lord, nobody in America has hunger for war, that's ridiculous.

Never mind '67, he thinks we Americans are all devils.

Australia has always sided with freedom and stood against dictators and despots. They may not field the largest units, but they aren't cowards or sissies, that's for sure.
