Just got a text message from a friend saying all roads into Russell are closed and police are everywhere. Any ideas whats happening over there?
WTF? Blue is the general Inf colour if the Btn hasn’t got a specific colour.
I would have though sandy berets for SASR, or Green Berets for 4RAR, but blue?
Not sky blue by any chance? Not that ADGies would be doing that sort of thing.
Well, Win News reports that a suspicious package with explosive residues detected in it was delivered to the mailroom of the ASIO/ONA building. AFP Bomb Squad personel made the package “Safe”.
Helicopters and scores of Police and Army personel seems a little over zealous. After all, the envelope contained explosive resideue, they didn’t say anything about fuses, timers or even solid explosives. Either not well planned or they’re not telling us something.
I was standing there when the chopper came in low, circled once around Blamey Square and came to a landing in the island between the two major car parks. Was truly a majestic site as I find most chopper experiences.
Now it did strike me as odd too though because when it landed it was in peak hour with traffic on all the roads around it and people walking to their cars – ie there was no safety fencing or security ensuring nothing came near the chopper during the landing. It was about 10-15 mins after the landing that a single, red security vehicle turned up and blocked one of the south bound lanes heading towards the Russell roundabout. This kept traffic from coming too close to the chopper on the south bound road but there was still nothing on the north bound road. The whole scene was weird. I was thinking as it was slowing down its blades that gee, I hope those blades don’t accidentally tap that bus as it goes by. An exclusion zone should have been mandatory I would have thought. If there had been any sort of mishap during landing, that chopper would have ended up cutting up traffic and pedestrians heading towards their cars.
About 3-4 blue berets exited the chopper and headed over towards the Russell buildings and were greeted by another group.
I have no idea what it was all about but I do get the feeling it wasn’t very well planned.
There was a helicopter circling over Russell at around 4pm today; it ended up landing in front of Tom Blamey Square.
I don’t know what it was for, though.
Might not be a laughing matter anymore, Police in London have tonight defused a “viable explosive device” in a car parked in an area bussling with tourists. (http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/06/29/1966221.htm)
Wouldn’t be difficult for someone to park some TNT in Blamey Square at lunch.
and if your wondering why did a metal detector picks up salt .. well your really asking is there a god ?? theres just no prove to support those Wild questions so just dont bother ..sorry this is fun
some lady walked in with a huge public servant ass and the metal detecter picked up a large amount of salt and this could be used to create a bomb so the police had to suck the salt out of the stomach of the lady ..its quite a reasonable story considering all the bullshit paranoia in the world about terroits .. and my spelling may be unpossible LOL
The cybernetic eagle on top of the pole was accidentally activated and was raining hellfire down upon the complex with it’s ion cannon eyes.
They’re trying to find that free parking space…
