Shorten celebrated his first birthday as an insipid parvenu with a heartfelt wish to ban Putin from the G20 and Abbott wants to shirt front the diminutive Ruskie. As much as that would rate its tits off, neither is going to happen.
Putin’s arming of the Ukraine separatists makes him no more responsible for MH17 than does Obama’s arming of the Syrian rebels make him responsible for the crimes of ISIS.
Abbott’s claim that Putin would not allow access to the crash site is plain wrong. The crash site is in Ukraine not Russia and required the permission of Poroshenko who actually stepped up the bombing of his own Ukraine citizens thereby making it impossible to access the site.
Meanwhile, protesters are busy rewriting their placards to confront Putin on his arrival for the G20 but there will be no placards for Recep Tayyip Erdogan because angry uni students will not recognise him, in fact they’ve probably never heard of him.
Well, he’s the Turkey assisting the ISIS to slaughter the Kurdish townspeople of Kobane, a critically strategic city of 44,000 people on the Syrian border.
Three weeks ago Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan was hosing fleeing refugees back across the border into Syria and certain death, today he is saving ISIS the trouble and shooting them himself.
Incredibly, Turkey is not only a member of the G20, it is also a member of NATO.
Erdogan’s plan is to stand by and watch the eradication of his hated Kurds by the ISIS, allowing it to take Kobane. Only then will he permit the coalition use of his airfields in an attempt to eradicate the ISIS from his border.
Erdogan kills two birds with the one stone by doing nothing… clever!
At the moment the coalition’s pointless bombing of the ISIS is being carried out from 1,000 miles away rather than minutes from Turkey.
Seventeen thousand Kurds still remain trapped in Kobane awaiting certain slaughter. They try to escape with their families through the hundreds of severed heads littering the streets only to be mown down by ISIS's Islamic militants.
No-one will help them, not Turkey, not NATO, not the Arab States and not the West.
Sometimes it’s shameful to be a member of a first world that is more concerned with the carbon credit riches to be made from a global warming hoax.
Shorten says he will refuse to meet Putin (it’s doubtful that would offend anyone) and Abbott wants to shirt front him, yet Putin is the leader of the only nation who assists Bashar Assad’s troops on the ground to degrade the varied components of the ISIS encamped in Syria?
Oh yes I forgot, we want the tyrant Assad taken out too, don't we?
Sometimes I want to go back to sleep and wake up again to a world that makes sense.
