Australia still hasn't suffered a terrorist attack on our soil, and everybody agrees that is both fortunate and a very good thing indeed. But in the wake of a 'lone wolf' attack on Canada's parliament, PM Tony Abbott has been ramping up The Fear, with his near constant curious smirk, trumpeting, 'We Could Be Next.'
This morning on 3AW radio, Abbott made a clear and direct suggestion to potential terrorists where they could strike in Australia, for both impact and lack of security. Does he want terror to happen here? What the hell was he thinking? Was he even thinking at all?
PM Tony Abbott, 3AW, Oct 24, 2014:
"I suppose to extremist fanatics (the Canberra War Memorial) could therefore be a target. There's the Last Post at our War Memorial every day and I guess if someone wanted to do something gruesome that's the kind of thing that could be looked at."He finished the interview by stating as prime minister he was the minister responsible for National Security.
Now that is scary.
