Greetings again comrades.

So apparently today is the International Day of Non-Violence. I guess it’s a bit late announcing it now as the day is almost over, but I just found out about this so shut your whore mouth. Anyway, let’s all happily celebrate this great day with some images of everybody’s favourite past-time: war!

Nagasaki being subjected to a nuclear arse-raping

Nagasaki being subjected to a nuclear arse-raping

Soviet troops having a good time

More Soviet troops eagerly joining in the fun

War: it's a party!

Children can join in too!

Children can join in too!

Domestic violence depictions is also a relevant and appropriate way of celebrating this important date.

Happy International Day of Non-Violence!

Disclaimer: if you are offended by the above post, promptly grow some balls, you neo-conservative fuck.

John Marsden’s The Tomorrow Series. Always a possibility…

…But chances are: one of my neighbours has a bigger penis than me. And more pubic hair. I don’t expect a ‘sword fight’ anytime soon though.


You walk down the road of some busy street, and you see people hurrying from one shop to another, from one task to the next, all content and occupied in their own little lives. But they ignore the biggest threat to Australia since World War II; war with Indonesia.

I kid you not! Indonesia, our northern neighbour, with a population 10 times that of Australia, and a military 20 times the size of ours. And yet no-one seems to acknowledge that they are our biggest threat; Kevin Rudd himself speaks of future threats from India or China, not Indonesia.

Let me give you the facts. Their navy is bigger than ours! They have more helicopters than us! Their soldiers are FAR more numerous than ours. Our two countries are seperated by a small shallow stretch of water. In the Australian outback, their vastly superior mechanised and motorised forces could penetrate deep into the Australian mainland before any response. Our only defences in the area are the few patrols from Norforce, unsuited to dealing with any large-scale attack.

Why would Indonesia invade Australia? In a word, lebensraum. For those of you that don’t know what that is, that means ‘living room’ in German, the reason given by Hitler for the invasion of Russia. Indonesia has 200 million people packed onto a few cramped islands, while Australia has barely a tenth of that number on the sixth largest country in the world. Our military is comparatively weak, our closest allies are the American forces in Japan and Hawaii, and we are rich in minerals, livestock and crops. Indonesia would benefit greatly from taking over Australia.

You might claim that America or Britain would come to our aid. But remember, America is all the way over the Pacific Ocean. Any reinforcements would take at least a day to arrive, reinforcements that could easily be intercepted and destroyed by the Indonesian military. They cannot move forces from Japan or Hawaii lest North Korea or China suddenly makes a foray into South Korea, Japan or Taiwan. Britain? Pah! A weakling of a country on the other side of the world, no longer able to play even a minor role in world affairs. Their Royal Navy no longer dominates the oceans, their soldiers better suited for parades at Buckingham Palace.

What Indonesia needs to do is form a web of alliances; Pakistan, the Arab League, China, North Korea and Russia. The first two are, like Indonesia, primarily Muslim, making an alliance easy to arrange. If Indonesia can persuade Pakistan to attack India, the Arab League to attack Israel, China to retake Taiwan, North Korea to attack South Korea, and Russia to recreate the Warsaw Pact by invading Eastern Europe, how could America aid all it’s allies at once? America would, most likely, as Britain did in World War II, give up on Australia as a lost cause, to be won back in any eventual negotiations. Indonesia would then be able to pluck Australia as easily as Nam takes innocence from children.

What do I think Australians should do? Well, I don’t think Indonesian is a difficult language to learn.
