Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says Australians may not think they’re at war with Islamic State, but Isis is at war with Australia. ‘As far as the Daesh [Isis] death cult is concerned, it’s coming after us’
Hey, hold on!
Australia is currently deploying a squadron of Super Hornets in the Middle East.
Now if having the merry bejesus bombed out of you by these babies isn’t “being at war” then I’d be interested in what Tony Abbott’s definition is.
Like it or not, Australia is at war with ISIS and in their eyes that will make us a legitimate target for terrorist attacks. Some security experts think they do not have the logistical ability to deliver those attacks.
The Australian public should be in no doubt that our participation in the war against ISIS, be it right or wrong, increases our security risk.
