Comment on US military base in Darwin: what risk to NT? by Surprised!.

We all know how desperate Gunner must be to at least put one run on the board, so perhaps it’s as simple as an injection of $300m and the ongoings from that, plus the additional spend of the military personnel.
Based on the bullshit income the government tells us the red centre Nats brings in (BTW I like the Nats) we’d be set for life!
The Gunner induced deficit would disappear like a mushroom cloud in a tornado.

US military base in Darwin: what risk to NT?
Despite all else we have to be in bed with someone!
WHY? Because we would be unable to defend ourselves. The government has made it so.
Forget the foreign bases here, that’s only the sweetener for our enemies.
The government has allowed and encouraged foreign ownership of some very powerful infrastructure and allowed the sale of land.
Our enemies purchase this land to grow food as their countries don’t have the facilities.
Does anyone else see where this could go?

It was once the parents’ responsibility and when that was stopped it became the school’s responsibility, then the employer’s. It’s time the parents were allowed and made to take on the responsibility.

@ Ian Sharp: I can appreciate the explanation. The saying monkey see monkey do has been used for eons. It has been allowed to become sensitive. People are way too sensitive these days. If it was intended as a racial slur, then it’s inappropriate but if it was meant to demonstrate that children do what they see, then so be it.

Shooting, not selling feral camels
@ Chris Le Page: I agree with your comments. The logistics of mustering and transportation is a real issue. You would need to set up trap yards and have feed and water available and possibly cool rooms.
You could then slaughter and dress or transport them live.
None of this is insurmountable, it’s more a question of people’s drive and ambition. This would also include the work in having a pre arranged market for the meat.
I believe there is already a market so the success of this business only boils down to the question, is there commitment? So is there?

@ Ian Sharp: Ian, I re-read the comment and I still don’t get it. Perhaps you could explain.
