WW2 Pacific Veterans - Battle for Australia Day

Battle won on dedicated Pacific war day
Patrick Walters, National security editor June 26, 2008

AFTER a long campaign by the RSL and a group of dedicated World War II Pacific veterans, the Rudd Government will today officially declare the first Wednesday in September "Battle for Australia Day".

Veterans Affairs Minister Alan Griffin will announce the new official commemoration, which marks the year 1942, when Australia thwarted Japan's southward advance into New Guinea and the Coral Sea.

Governor-General Michael Jeffery officially proclaimed "Battle for Australia Day" as a national day of observance in a proclamation published in yesterday's Commonwealth Gazette.

Kokoda - Front Line.

Kokoda - R.A.A.F Eagles over New Guinea.

Appointment in Tokyo (1 of 6)

The idea for a special Battle for Australia Day commemoration was first raised more than a decade ago by the RSL with the veterans' organisation wanting a sharper focus on the momentous events of 1942 in the southwest Pacific.

While the proposal won in-principle endorsement from the Howard government, it has been strongly challenged by mainstream military historians who reject the formal notion of a "Battle for Australia".

"We are commemorating a battle which did not occur. Australians want to commemorate their wartime experience, but they have chosen the wrong vehicle," leading military historian Peter Stanley told The Australian last night.

Dr Stanley, the author of a book to be published next week on the battle for Australia, says the new "revisionist" view of 1942 has never figured in general histories of Australia or in specialist studies of the Pacific war.

The RSL has cited a speech by wartime prime minister John Curtin in February 1942 as the inspiration for the concept.

At that time, Curtin said the fall of Singapore "opens the battle for Australia".

The RSL and the unofficial Battle for Australia Council has wanted to see much more visible recognition of the series of 1942 battles against the Japanese, including the initial victory at Milne Bay in early 1942 followed by the battle of the Coral Sea and the Kokoda campaign.,25197,23923683-31477,00.html


Crucial Wombat Time

The Wombat (Vombatus ursinus)

Treasury boss Ken Henry leaves post to look after wombats

By Steve Lewis, National Political Correspondent

June 27, 2008 12:00am

THE man at the helm of Australia's troubled economy will leave his post for nearly five weeks to look after a colony of endangered wombats.

Ken Henry, the Treasury Secretary, will miss an important Reserve Bank board meeting and be without a mobile phone as he ventures into remote Epping Forest National Park in central Queensland.

The Coalition has questioned who will be running economic policy at a "crucial time", with key decisions pending on carbon trading, tax reform and foreign investment.

Wombats in Cradle Mountain National Park

All his professional duties, including completing a first draft of the Government's "root and branch" tax review, will be delegated to other Treasury officials.

Editorial: What is behind Mr Henry's decision?

eye of the wombat

Common Wombats

Let me say right from the start (from personal experience) Wombats are smart. They have a large brain and they know how to use it. They are frolicsome and will play with what seems like inexhaustible energy. They are also quite fast afoot, able to run at around 40 km/hr. They are particularly fast and smart when a packet of chocolate biscuits is about to be put out of reach.

Australia Next

this comment says it all:

Hitler was for Gun control. Stalin was for gun control. As soon as the guns were taken from ordinary people the genocide started. The second amendment was not written so that people could go hunting it was meant for the citizens to defend themselves against overbearing government or tyrants. In Australia we have no means of defending our selves against a Government that has gone bad. It has not happened yet but it will happen and we will be defenseless.

US court to rule on the right to bear arms

From correspondents in Washington DC

June 26, 2008 02:47pm

  • US Supreme Court to rule on right to bear arms
  • Decision will be first of its kind for seven decades
  • Expected to have major impact on US gun control

  • THE highest court in the United States is set to issue a ruling for the first time in seven decades on the highly emotional issue of the constitutional right to bear arms.

The US Supreme Court's decision - on whether the right to keep and bear arms is fundamentally an individual or collective right - is expected to have a far-reaching impact on US gun control laws, experts say.



BELLEVUE, WA – With this morning’s ruling on the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, America has begun “its long march back toward liberty under a Second Amendment that means what it says,” the Second Amendment Foundation said.

“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court should forever put to rest any contention that the right to keep and bear arms is not a fundamental, individual civil right,” said SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb. “For six decades, anti-gun rights extremists have engaged in a monumental fraud that has been unfortunately perpetuated by activist judges who erroneously insisted that the right to keep and bear arms applies only to service in a militia.

“Wisdom and truth have triumphed over hysteria and falsehood,” he continued. “This decision makes it clear that a right ‘of the people’ is a right enjoyed by, and affirmed for, all citizens. It destroys a cornerstone of anti-gun rights elitism, which has fostered – through years of deceit and political demagoguery – the erosion of this important civil right.

“This ruling also makes it abundantly clear that laws which ban the possession of firearms, or make it simply impossible through regulation for citizens to exercise their right to keep and bear arms, are unconstitutional and cannot stand,” Gottlieb stated. “Today, America has taken a small but significant step toward restoring the Second Amendment to its proper place in our Bill of Rights.

“For too many years,” he observed, “Americans have seen this fundamental civil right under constant and unrelenting attack. We are hopeful that today’s decision will halt an insidious campaign for citizen disarmament through legislation and regulations that have made our neighborhoods less safe, our cities less secure and our people less self-reliant, which is the trait that has made America unique among nations.

“But this fight is hardly over,” Gottlieb concluded. “Today’s ruling is a stepping stone, the foundation upon which we can rebuild this important individual right. Our work has only just begun.”
