Can you make mine a soy latte…to go?

When describing the conditions of Australia’s 450 extra troops, Lieutenant Colonel Noble said:

“Inside [the compound] it’s basic, but it’s got the essential things that we need, an area to fix vehicles, it’s got a gym, place for soldiers to sleep, it even has a coffee shop.”

Shopping centres have gymnasiums and coffee shops Sir. War zones are dangerous, and no amount of frothy coffee can mask that.

The experience of war to those that go and those left behind is traumatic. War is the last resort and that is why we marched today.

We should never have been part of the Coalition of the Willing and that statement is as true today as it was two years ago.
