Waltzing Matilda
« on: November 19, 2020, 12:31:38 am »
Australian Army Chief of Staff just went live on telly to apologies for Aussie soldiers murdering civilians in Afghanistan for a bit of fun .Wonder when the Brits will ever own up to a shoot to kill policy when the British Army murdered British Catholics in British Ruled Norn Eireann.

Its a little bit more than that its brave and discracefull .Brave that the Australian army admitted they have murdering cunts in their ranks .They admit fucktards thinking they are men shot dead children women and innocent men for nothing more than an in house drinking game .Just like Britains shoot to kill in Norn Eireann .Not really a subject for promoting a clancy tune .

"Waltzing Matilda" was written by Banjo Patterson
"Never knew there was worse things than dyin'". Mate of mine used to sing that song really well at parties. He was a Royal Marine, and served in the Falklands. Fit as a fiddle, not an ounce of fat, until he died at 56 after 2 years of Motor Neuron Disease. Never complained, bore the slow loss of all his functions like a warrior.
"Well, meet me at the bottom, don't lag behind
Bring me my boots and shoes
You can hang back or fight your best on the frontline
Sing a little bit of these workingman's blues".
