Pity about the Army

If media reports about the future role of the Army are correct, then heaven-help the poor soldiers.

It seems our main Defence role will be to protect Australia and its assets. Overseas excursions will be limited, I suspect, to nearby (Pacific) nations.

This won’t keep the troops happy for long. Guarding strategic assets is a pretty boring job. The government has also mooted more use of Reserves (if it can find them).
