If I had to go to war I would be a coward, how about you?

Of course if my country was invaded that would change things a bit but I just couldn't imagine being in a situation with bullets, bombs & grenades going off around me killing all my mates. Any digger in my mind is worth ten of me any day!!

      Australia has huge amounts of mineral resources anyway Iraq was invaded for only it’s oil & it’s all desert , we have a lot more than just oil resources in this country.

          Yes I suppose it's a little like that Krisztian, we had one pommy couple come out & they complained that everything bites, well I suppose if you’re born into that situation you know no difference & being down under just adds to the excitement.

          Love
