Comment on Peace President Obama dispatcher of drones killing innocents by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Margaret Pistorius: “I’m sorry that the US families are segregated but they are most certainly well remunerated for their roles in killing members of other families the world around.”
Are you saying they are war criminals? If so protest as well against our Defense Force, close it down as our soldiers have certainly killed civilians in all the armed conflicts they were involved.
“Pine Gap is most certainly targetted for nuclear strike in the case of war. It’s a dangerous imposition on the striking landscape.”
Good because we will die immediately instead of suffering a long agony of nuclear poisoning.
PS: I am a pacifist believing that all protests and manifestations should be directed at closing armament factories.
Congo-Kinshasa / Zaire / Democratic Republic of Congo (1960 to present) It started with machetes and spears! I know, I was there.

@ Margaret Pistorius, could you give us a full scenario of what comes after Pine Gap is closed?Not just for Alice, please.
The truth is that Australia was an obedient British colony until World War Two, and now we are just another obedient US Client State.

Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
Concerned Rate and Taxpayer: Explain then why we have a NT flag? One flag OK, is NT not Australia? Why has the Casino so many flags? Is Malaysia invading us?


Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
How sad to see one flag missing on Anzac Hill, a war memorial.
War does not discriminate, nor should we.
Indigenous Australians have served in virtually every conflict and peace keeping mission in which Australia has participated since the start of last century – from the Boer War to East Timor, and most likely Afghanistan also.
I hope it will fly on the 18 August for the commemoration of the Battle of Long Tan (August 18, 1966).
Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War from 1962 – 1975 involved almost 60,000 Australians of whom 521 paid the ultimate sacrifice.
In 1987 Prime Minister Bob Hawke designated 18 August as Australia’s official Vietnam Veterans’ Day.
The date commemorates the Battle of Long Tan when Delta Company 6 RAR fought an encounter battle against enemy forces in the Long Tan rubber plantation just a few thousand metres from the 1st Australian Task Force base at Nui Dat.
Heavily outnumbered and in jungle conditions, Aboriginal servicemen were among Australian troops who fought a guerrilla war against the Viet Cong. Among the 108 men who fought in Australia’s most famous battle in Vietnam, against an entire Viet Cong regiment of around 1500–2000. Five diggers have been identified as Aboriginal after the battle.
Of the 260 Indigenous Vietnam veterans identified by the Australian War Memorial in 2010, 19 were Navy. Many sailors were involved in transporting servicemen to Vietnam from Australia and patrols to the North Vietnamese coast.
Could we not honour those servicemen by flying the flag?
I can hear the voices saying but they serve under the Australian flag! Have they? A flag which still does not recognise them and did not exist at the time of the Boer war.

James T Smerk, your comment equals emotional blackmail.


Gallery at Anzac consult: council hurries to meet govt deadline
It is important to respect, recognise and invest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultures. They have told us repeatedly that it is central to their lives, and identified culture as a key factor in improving and maintaining wellbeing. It shapes Indigenous identity, linking people to their community and country, and importantly is a contributing factor to health and wellbeing.
However our government wants to built a so called cultural center which will be a contradiction to Aboriginal Culture.
Possible scenario: Anzac oval disappears (who gets the money?) everything is bulldozered but he gallery cannot be built because of the opposition of the legal custodians of the site.
Protocols for welcoming visitors to country have been a part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures for thousands of years.
Despite the absence of fences or visible borders, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups had clear boundaries separating their country from that of other groups. Crossing into another group’s country required a request for permission to enter.
Another possible scenario: The gallery will be built but legal owners have the rights to tell visitors that they are not welcome.
