How do we sleep while our beds are burning?

AUSTRALIA: NT: The American Military Industrial Complex and the United States Air Force has given the first details of new long range missions that will see it dropping bombs on the Northern Territory in up to six separate exercises a year.

The first exercise started on Tuesday, with two stealth aircraft flying non-stop return trips to Guam and releasing two concrete-filled bomb casings at the Delamere Range near Katherine.

Only one of the B-2 bombers has actually touched down in Australia, the others are being refueled in the air.

But the time has come, To say go home, Australia's not for sale, At any price!

US Air Force Colonel Bob Wheeler says the stealth bombers can carry nuclear weapons. (DU) uranium! But that will not happen during the training exercises. But I'm sure no one has any confidence about that!

"No. That will never be done. The weapons that we will be using here are the ones that are approved for your ranges," he said.

"And those do not include anything with depl- (sic) uranium or any kind of replicas or regular nuclear weapons. There will be nothing in that area."

The only problem is that we the general public will never know until we become sick and uncle sam is loose with the truth. So why not practice in the US so we can be sure?

The time has come, A fact's a fact. They've done it before, So let's give it back!

Bombing accident

One of the Territory's top Defiance militants says he will try to find out why an official report into a bombing accident in the Northern Territory has been suppressed.

The Defiance Department has repeatedly refused to release the official report into how a US bomb nearly hit a control tower at Delamere last August.

Today, as the US announced the details of the new war games, Militant Campbell Darby said last year's incident has triggered changes.

"You've got to understand it's actually a very barren environment there," he said.

"Even just making some of the way points that air craft pilots will identify with clearer, so they know where they are.

"A lot of procedural changes to do with the briefing of pilots which has been tightened up considerably, control arrangements for aircraft over the range, so there are a number of enhancements."

But how can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?
Stealth Bombers scare the cockatoos
From Kintore East to Yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees
