(News.com.au) AUSTRALIA will be billed by the US military for many of the missiles and other bombs RAAF jet fighters drop in the campaign against Islamic State terrorists.
US-supplied smart-guided weapons fitted to Australia’s Super Hornets can range in price from less than $70,000 to more than $650,000 each.
User-pays is not new, and longstanding Defence Logistics Support Agreements between Australia, the US and the UK have seen Australia pay its coalition partners well in excess of $150 million since the conflicts began in Afghanistan and Iraq after the 9/11 attacks on the US in 2001. read more
AM comment: Translating the above bullshit – Your mate in America rings up and asks you to come over and help fix his ‘blow back’ roof that blew off in a 2001 twister. Being a good mate you happily agree. When you get there he makes you first agree to pay for all the new trusses and tiles you place on his home. The beer, steaks, accommodation and airfare tickets are also charged on your account. You look at him with a great big smile on your stupid fat face, and willingly agree. Why should you care? The Chinese credit card in your top pocket gets billed to your twenty three million next door neighbors back home in Australia.
(Real News Australia) December 2014 saw the sell off of one of the Australian Governments biggest revenue streams. Medibank Private, the government owned health fund was sold off by Abbott to his mates in the huge finance world. Many of whom finance the LNP.
No longer does Australia own its own health fund. Medibank Private used to earn the government billions of dollars. Sold off for a quick buck to prop up a budget that in itself appears to never be balanced.
In a previous article called Collusion for Illusion it was pointed out that the owners of our “Australian owned” Big Four banks are actually massive foreign owned banks. J P Morgan Chase, HSBC, Citicorp & National Nominees are the majority shareholders of our big banks. read more
(AustraliaMatters) Aussiematters is owned and run by whites that have no problem hearing all sides of a story.
This documentary has been out since 2010. Although SBS are promoting an Australian “tour”, we’ve not found evidence that SBS have yet aired this on TV. You sure wont see this on the ABC. Why? Because it exposes how the Federal government was taking traditional land owners mining royalties and using it to buy 40 (originally wanted 99) year land leases.
(AustraliaMatters) Busy week for the Gillard international socialist fabian society. It must be tough work increasing our debt, exporting our jobs, giving away our taxes, and literally selling country Australia to foreign governments. Aren’t you glad your family fought and died in wars to help keep Australia safe for foreign investors? Yeah, Gillard could have bought 93,000 hector Cubbie Station for $300 million and literally saved our largest farm. But ow no dear Aussie, that’s not the big picture! Goods from Cubbie Station will go straight to Asia cutting out the Aussie middleman. As Alan Jones puts it; “Paddock to plate”.
