Chilean presidential hopeful and former Defence Minister Michelle Bachelet (C) shares a joke with officials during the launching of Chile's O'Higgins diesel attack submarine 09 December, 2005 in Valparaiso, 100 km west of Santiago. The Skorpene-class O'Higgins, built by the Spanish-French consortium DCN-Izar, is armed with the new-generation heavyweight Black Shark torpedoes. Bachelet, who is seeking to become Chile's first woman head of state, goes into Sunday's presidential election needing a final boost to secure overall victory over right wing rivals. The 54-year-old moderate socialist, the daughter of a general tortured to death during Augusto Pinochet's 1973-90 military junta, is virtually certain to win the first round but not get the 50 percent needed to avoid a second round runoff.

The arabs would expulse them before you could even blink. But when it is the other way around, well it's called multiculuralism and it's all OK because the mass medias say so.

Multiethnicty works, multiracial societies work, multiculturalism on the other hand can be dangerous. A society can be of many races if the basic beliefs and culture are about the same. It's when the beliefs of the members of that society are radically different from each other that we get trouble. So in some ways ED209 is correct.

I’m from Sydney and unless you’ve been here a while you cannot understand why the events in those photo’s took place.

There is a ALOT more to the situation then meets the eye or is parroted around by media salivating over the thought of a juicy head line.

It's when the beliefs of the members of that society are radically different from each other that we get trouble.

I would caveat that statement with this: Peaceful cohabitation by individuals or groups with significantly different beliefs or cultures works best among educated and intelligent people. There is significantly more ethnic/cultural and religious strife in regions with less educated and thus less tolerant populations.

To boot, get a few pints in anyone and the higher brain functions take a back seat to more primal instincts... like intolerance and violence. QED.

Ignorance is bliss! Gents, this is the Internet, not some college class room where we can all live in some esoteric utopia. I am not pleased with the peoples actions, but I think (in this situation) the Australian Police can handle this problem!

To the think the rest of the world is like Canada or Western Europe is PURE fantasy. Ignore what you see and stick with what the poster posted! The extra posting is a damn pain. Post the photos and stick with the military aspect and not some pie-the-sky pipe dream!

Excellant MILITARY images BTW!

Australia is fine....everyone gets angry at something sometimes, but that doesnt mean that things are 'BAD'. This will create people to work harder at this situation and the issues will be fixed.

PS. from what I heard, it was the lifeguards issue who were giving the Lebanese gentlemen a few words and then he called his 'cousins' and they kicked his ****....like they should...the next weekend it was the bogan aussies turn to kick some ****.....now we haev this....

Aussie white pride? The realtives of of ex british criminals deported into a large desert island on the end of the world???????????? What the hell is this ****?

This drunken, violent rioteers needs some kick with some low enforcement stick. Kick them out from the beautiful Australia and not the thousands of hard working, tax paying immigrants.

But the worst thing is, that I didn´t know, that the situation in Australia is like that. Of course, I have seen the Skinhead movie "Romper Stomper" and I see many same things like in british subcultures, but I never aspectet something like that.

note M4s are camoed, and rigged with RIS. middle man on lower photo got ACOG, another trademark of the user.

It is not as bad as it is portrayed.....so any riot in another nation means the nations is under siege and decaying? it is just a flair up...will soon go away....

I do not suppors these riots in any way, but I can understand their aggression too. And far from all immigrants are hard working tax players.

Is that maybe a Micro Galil ?
Is that a contract ?
I thought DSS or Marines secured embassies?
Can someone enlighten me ?


As for the aussie pride thing, I saw pictures on the tv of a mob beating a dark skinned Girl as she was on the ground, and thats all I needed to see. Words cannot describe the anger I felt.Bunch of rowdy pussies.
Doesnt matter how angry you are, you dont go beating the **** out of random people based on their skin colour.

*****ing morons. Punish the people who did spomething wrong, but don't start beating people because they have a different color or religion. I don't think I should have to remind people of the last time this one done at large scale; WW2.

I'd be happy to put a bullet in these *****s who like to be so *****ing brave to kich the ***** out of someone only if they have 20 guys supporting them. *****ing *****s.

Do you mean Netherlanders who beat to death they own Netherlander collabarators, or do you mean French who lynch French collaborators, or do you mean Italians who shot at RSI Italians, or do you mean Polish who make atrocities at Germans in the east territories?

Or do you selected the wrong time frame? Do you mean maybe white Americans in the south USA in the 50ies and 60ies? Do you mean colored people in the 80ies in south LA? Do you mean maybe British Hooligans in Europe? Or do you mean Somali gunman in Mogadishou in the 90ies?

I say that, because I can´t immagine that you mean Germans.

Did I miss something during the '84 Olympics or something?

I lived in South Central (USC) during the riots in 1991 and it was either Rodney King that got brutalized by cops or Reginald Denny that nearly got killed during the riot, so get your facts straight in your lecturing diatribe because that was my hood you're talking about ..
