Book Review: Failures of Command

Post by Shy Ted

In 2012 Private Robert Poate was one of 3 Australian soldiers killed by a supposed ally in the Afghan National Army. Other soldiers were injured in the attack. This book, beautifully written and researched by Robert’ father, Hugh, is an expose of subsequent events, the Coronial Inquest and ADF shenanigans in pursuit of defending the actions of increasingly higher-ranked Commissioned Officers, most of whom have no combat experience. It lays bare systemic failures, the inability to learn from previous similar attacks and the refusal to accept adverse findings and with no attempt to redress them.

That Time of the Month

Post by Shy Ted

Small regional town in the tropics, population less than 1000, part of my occasional outreach travels as a mental health nurse.

Would You Adopt?

Post by Shy Ted

When I was in a state capital doing nursing for an agency I’d often get the rotten jobs. “Ted, can you do a special?” This means you have to care for one patient only. “She’s due to give birth today and she’s a bit challenging”.

The Corrupt Global Dynasty of the Rothschilds

As a writer and researcher who has been following the many events taking place in the world, especially those in the past three years, Paul Cudenec has come up with a single name springing up many times: the Rothschilds. Cudenec presents his detailed research on this dynasty in the form of a 100-page booklet. He has also highlighted the issue of anything being labelled as anti-semitic if the criticism is directed at someone who happens to be Jewish.

Green and Gold? Nah, Red, Green and Black.

Post by Shy Ted
