Will Tony Abbott’s duplicity never stop? It seems not. For weeks he has been labeling Australian involvement in Iraq as solely “humanitarian” yet now he is imitating Obama’s statements, i.e “to disrupt and degrade IS , to do as much damage as possibly can be done to IS and hopefully to drive it from Iraq.” – Hardly the same thing.
Yes, you may consider it justified to follow such a course but that is not the point. The point is that our Prime Minister, Tony Abbott is simply a sycophantic follower of the US and that he constantly lies to the Australian people.
If Tony Abbott wants to go to war, as his actions clearly indicate, then he should say so up front and should mobilise Australian forces in such a way that they can do the job properly. Instead, he puts all Australians in greater risk of harm and the defense personnel who are sent to Iraq & Syria in particular danger because they are too few AND probably quite confused about what they are supposed to do.
One doesn’t carry a gun into a conflict zone unless one is ready to use it. Tony Abbott is a warmonger who will be responsible for the lives of more Australians – particularly young ones who are in the forces out of a sense of patriotism, out of desperation through the lack of any other job or because they saw joining up as one way to get through university without a debt.
Tony Abbott, you should resign before you do any more harm.
