IBN News is reporting that the controversial SIEVX memorial is going to go ahead on the shores of lake burley griffin.
Frankly I think this is wrong although it is only a temporary structure.
Yes it was a tragedy. Lots of people died, this is not good. But to somehow twist this into an anti Howard, anti Australian handwringing leftist black armband ideal is not right.
It will open at Weston Park in Yarralumla on September 2.
Supporters of the memorial say their long-term goal is to create a permanent structure.
I hope not.
