Australians are tired of boat-loads of "refugees" arriving every week or two. They riot, escape, and complain about the way they're treated and cost Australian taxpayers $200 million per year to accomodate.
Why am I not impressed? You've got more than enough people there so that that is like .. NOTHING.
The Norweigan ship has entered Australian waters illegally.
Thats a lie. Its illegal for Australia to deny it passage, as it is NOT fit to travel on the sea with that many passengers.
The government is currently trying to pass legislation to allow the ship to be forcibly removed. It surprises me that these laws are necessary given that the ship was refused entry into Australian waters.
Your senate rejected those laws. Also, it would be illegal to force the captain out into international waters, as there is not enough rescue-equipment for all those passengers. According to international treaties the ship is NOT FIT at the moment.
I believe the statement about the lack of medical supplies is rubbish. The Australian government flew doctors and medical supplies to the ship yesterday.
Rubbish. Lies. The supplies were not brought to the ship. Also, your military doctors _Refuse_ to help the refugees while the norwegian ship are in your waters. What are you waiting for? Casualties?
Why does nobody expect Indonesia to accept the refugees, even though they were picked up half-way between Indonesia and Australia?
That is not the important matter right now. Right now a ship which is NOT fit to go into open waters with that many passengers are sitting in Australian Waters, by christmas island. The important thing right now is to get those refugees to land, and get the pregnant women with stomack-cramps treates. Get the passed out people treated. Get them treated for diphteria, skin-diseases and so forth.
One has to wonder, your government has made itself a safety valve by saying they won't let the ship get to land except under exceptional emergency-circumstances. Well, I guess you idiot sons of bitches are just waiting for the first death. Its tragic.
The Taliban have asked nicely that Australia accept the refugees. Perhaps Australia would be more likely to do so if Australian aid workers weren't being held in Afghani jails.
That is _irrelevant_. Totally _irrelevant_. There are people in jeopardy outside your coast because your government is a bunch of sick bastards. And you start arguing "what about them, they are just as bad". How stupid is it possible to get?
