Dear Pirate, ATS Readers, Writers,
I too as a FUTURE Australian, find this thread offensive....
I was born and raised in the Fascist dunny hole.. I do NOT recognize it as the country I grew up in.
I honest to God feel like I am in a foreign land here anymore.
The system here is corrupt as it can be..kinda like New South Wales on steroids..lol (Sorry NSW rezzies..)
Hopefully, those that are now Ozzians, who were born in a foreign land, EMBRACE OZ FULLY!! As I will.
People dont understand the world any more..
Australia is a hidden jewel on this Earth. Its land and people are an amazing bunch of folks. Couldnt ask for a nicer bunch of people! Yeah, you will
RARELY run into a Oz trouble maker..a poor bloke/gal who has a drug or drink problem..
Case in point, during the Brisbane flooding, and then the Cyclone that flooded Queensland.. (Size of the entire Northwest USA) There were barely any
looting reports, and those tiny incidents were reported to the police, and the thieving arseholes were in trouble FAST. It takes a LOW CREATURE to rob
from neighbors during a crisis!!!
Oz really is the greatest country on Earth... they got their act together a lot better than the USA.. Not long ago the Ozzians were 3 yrs or less from
NO NATIONAL DEBT!!! (Not sure where that claim lies now)
They have used Ecological and green ideas in most of their country, or at least sure try to..I.E. all of the camodes with the 2 button option for
flushing waste...small example, but so true.
The other day my step-daughter rattled off a LONG list of OZ accomplishments and inventions for the world. I was very impressed by her knowledge and
And NONE of the claims were like WE INVENTED THE ATOMIC BOMB... they were like Oz invented the WI-FI a lot of the world uses for internet access,
Several writers/posters have mentioned the fact that CAN AMERICANS TRUST THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT!?!?
Damn good question! And only a fool can say that they can..a sheep for the coming slaughter.
My wife is a 10 pound pom, Essex UK born, turned 2 yrs old on boat ride to OZ... she is rabidly loyal and in love with Oz.
Oz has had a unique opportunity to witness what works and does NOT work in other countries and has used this observation skill to avoid societal
disasters, or mistakes...
Sadly I see OZ as a probable pressure point, or Oz being "squeezed" in the middle of a future conflict between warmonger central and Commie
central..USA and China.
Some terrible situation could easily be thrust upon Ozzians.(any of us really)..WW3 being a good possibility. Will Oz be the island fortress that UK
was during WW2?
As for DUGOUT DOUG Mc ARTHUR... The Oz struggle in New Guinea, Stanley Owen Mountains, Port Moresby, Kakadu Trail..severe hardship, disease, and even
being EATEN by the JAPS, yes cannabalism. USA had a million or so troops in OZ during this terrible war theatres actions.
NO USA troops to help UNTIL final victory was assured and Japs were holed up on small pocket of northern shore, a 15 kilometer bubble of starved,
sick, undersupplied Japs.. THEN Dugout Doug sends in the USA troops so they have bragging rights and good propaganda for the sheep back home!
Of course, Oz leadership didnt help by sending MILITA BOYS,( referred to as "Chocko's" by the then regular Oz army troops) and darn few Chockos to
stop an entire well armed and trained Jap army..but they endured.. Oz sent REAL army troops finally, at the last minute, and thus began the long slog
back across the Stanley Owen range..
Battle of the Coral Sea was the turning point... but many dont know, or recognize that the first DEFEAT of Japanese army was by OZZIANS.. they drove
their landing in far east PNG back into the sea! OZZIANS showed the rest of the world the Japanese were NOT invincible! Without this victory, Port
Morseby could easily have been lost to Japan...and have Oz invaded and occupied.
Study the REAL history of OZ, its origins... its involvement in conflicts that OTHERS ALWAYS START...
Oz had two generation of young lads WASTED on the field of battle, in two world wars... I say NEVER AGAIN to that S**T!
Cant trust the Ozzians???? Your balmy mate..lol.. Get to rehab...
