    No apologies required. The Aussies I worked with in Baghdad were good people - frustrated people but good. However, they filled jobs in training and log that we couldn't have filled because of our workload elsewhere.

    I was vital work in its own way and the body corporate would not have worked if they hadn't carried out those tasks.

    I know that this comment is all about Inf but the wider picture is known by anyone with a brain.

    No embarrassement and no apology required.
     
  3. Erm, the apology was a cut and paste error.

    Have a flick through the comments on the ABC site.

    Yup. looked and saw pretty much the same kind of discussions being made there as you will hear in the debate here. I cut a more sensible part of the debate to paste here.

    Simple matter - are your politicians willing to get more involved in A or I? I don't think so and therefore they will remain happy to contribute to the rules they have set now.

    As an ex-infanteer, I understand the frustrations but in all ops, someone has to pick up the quieter jobs. I'm just glad you are there to do them.
