I am ecstatic that Tony Abbott is going to ‘shirt front’ Vladimir Putin. I hope it’s the beginning of a wonderful trend. If another nation offends, threatens or hurts your people, your leader takes off his shirt, puts on the boxing gloves or the martial arts uniform and has a bit of biffo with the other nation’s leader.
Ah, think of the money we can now save in defence spending, the saving of all those soldiers’ lives. No more arms race, no more arms trade, no more environments laid waste to war, no more child soldiers, no more refugees fleeing war, no more soldiers raping women, no more torture, no more innocent lives tragically lost, no more ‘collateral damage’. Oh the joy of it!
And to think it is Australia’s own Tony Abbott who bravely puts himself on the front line to kick-start (or at least kick-box) this peaceful new world into being! Another great first for Australia!
