Tony Abbott on the pink batts scandal, 22 February 2013, joint press conference with Will Hodgman MP, Hobart
Just this week Operation Sovereign Borders actually killed someone and injured a great deal more. As the Loon Pond notes “it’s [a] tremendously revealing insight into the way Abbott doesn’t actually think of the people trapped on Manus Island as people.”
Also: The Boer War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, the War on Terror (including Afghanistan and Iraq), stop me if I’m wrong.
As for the UNDECLARED wars, what about the untold number of Indigenous Australians that have been murdered, injured, incarcerated or kidnapped over the last 200 or so years? Then there’s the British nuclear tests at Maralinga. And that’s off the top of my head!
