Darwin : A Time to Reflect

At 0958hrs on the 19th February 1942, 188 Japanese carrier based aircraft from the same carrier fleet that bombed Pearl Harbour, commenced bombing Darwin.

Thirty minutes later more than 243 people had been killed and some 400 wounded.

May those that perished on that fateful day continue to Rest in Peace. May we remain forever cognizant of their sacrifice.

The Australian community is in for a world of long overdue pain. It is wholly its own fault for which I have nil sympathy.

Thanks indeed for the comment. I do agree that we badly need to 'clean out the swamp'. Trump certainly stirred those fetid waters.

I agree with the general thrust of your comments but the Australian community believes the governments can deliver without pain and there will be a lot of pain up ahead.

Nice job on the essay John, but regardless of his positions, Dutton is too much a cretin of the past, he also looks like the walking dead. We don't need more career politicians, we need a Trump.
