Especially for UK people, does anyone read this? It's an utter load of bullshit. Part of the reason why the ship was rejected I beleive is it was a norweigen cargo ship.
Norweigen ships DONT SINK so it was an easy choice for the government.
Secondly, Australia did send about 25 SAS troops on now these guys are rarly brought out. Every other refugee boat the Royal Australian Navy deals with, these guys generally will be carrying side arms maybe a few sailors with styres. Considering it was just before S11 and for the first time ever the government stood up and said there is no way those people are coming into this country I know this is paranoid but what if our government and the US knew something big was coming they just didnt know what, It would explain the presence of the SAS.
And lastly Xmas island residents didnt want the refugees infact the ones they already have there have been very violent battles thought in the past when some escaped.
