Mark Dreyfus’ exclusive media diversity club

It’s all about the numbers, Fake News continues to dominate REAL News and the ALP is just as much an ally as the LNP. In that regard, they are Trumpist-rating chasers. Murdoch destroyed News in the UK for ratings and when busted fled to the US. He destroyed News in the US and they live with the consequence today. He struggled in Australia because we had the ABC so he called on the LNP to dilute and weaken what was a bulwark to democracy that kept the bastards honest. With every successive LNP government that safety net to REAL trusted News and information has been broken.

Defence: Australia buys 20 ‘God of war’ missile launchers

The long-range missile launcher has been credited with a key role in Ukraine’s fight against Russian invaders.

$1 Billion for boys with toys: What the fuck is 300 km from anywhere in Australia? We drive that distance for a barbecue and then drive back home.

With a range of 300 km who might these land-based missile launchers be aimed at. How quickly can they be repositioned in a country the size of Australia? Have they been purchased to protect AUKUS facilities and profits or Australian citizens?

HIMARS munitions can be fired up to 300 kilometres, a major increase on the Australian Army’s maximum strike capacity of 30 to 50 kilometres with the lightweight howitzer.
