`Sadly there appears to be real trouble brewing in the Middle East – Iraq specifically this time, but do we have to be involved? Will anything be achieved? Think Iraq 2003 and Afghanistan and answer that question yourself.
Is there something in the genes of one Liberal PM after another that leads them to involve us in trouble overseas.
Menzies (“…and as a consequence Australia is now at war with Germany”),into Vietnam followed by his Liberal successors who kept us in the Vietnam War; then the Iraq War -Howard, and unfortunately the present PM seems indoctrinated with the “leadership” gene at any cost.
Similarly it seems to fall to the Opposition, the ALP, to extricate us from Liberal wars.
I hope we are not seeing this habit all over again.
