No wonder this, no wonder that Humpy , when are we to expect your mob to hit it on with us to prop up another one of your silly wars ?
Maybe you mob should drink Bundy Rum and you would spend less time droning people to death.
Drones saves american lives, its a smart thing to do. And doesnt your government have the balls to say NO, no one twisted australias arm to make them join the war. If you have a problem with that, then I suggest you take it up with YOUR government officals.

Well at least they nullify the use of the forces, I can see a few of them looking for work soon, and then their is the American love of guns to protect themselves against the government, hey prawn the government have drones now, I wonder if you say they save lives when aimed at you?
