Australians As Teachers

At Right On The Right we’re reminded of something the Australians did during a recent “match” with the Iranians:

Remember the British soldiers that were temporarily captured by Iran, causing an international bruhaha?

Remember how they ranted for days and weeks about how there was no way they could've avoided capture?

The Australians managed to do it:

It turns out that Iranian forces made an earlier concerted attempt to seize a boarding party from the Royal Australian Navy.

The Australians, though, to quote one military source, "were having none of it".

The BBC has been told the Australians re-boarded the vessel they had just searched, aimed their machine guns at the approaching Iranians and warned them to back off, using what was said to be "highly colourful language".

The Iranians withdrew, and the Australians were reportedly lifted off the ship by one of their own helicopters.

They aimed their machine guns at the approaching Islamofascists, and used highly colorful language to make their intentions clear.

Lesson to Britain, that is how it's done.
Lesson to the rest of us: That is how it’s always done if you want to keep your freedom.

Hat tip:

I had the pleasure of working with the Aussies while in Korea many years ago. My take on the "Wallabies" is they're like Americans used to be. G'day, Mates!!

I recently spent almost 4 weeks in Australia.

I second what you say.
