Enough rhetoric. It's time for action.

Australia will deploy a military force of 600 to the Middle East as part of international efforts to combat Islamic State extremists, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has announced.

Australia's contribution will include up to eight Super Hornet aircraft, an early warning and control aircraft, aerial refuelling aircraft and a contingent of Special Forces troops.

'We think this is a balanced and proportionate contribution to what is our fight, but it is the world's fight,' Mr Abbott said.

Thank you Australia and Mr Abbott.
