The Premier of The State of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia stated that they are "prepared" for the worst!
WTF IS THAT ALL ABOUT!
The Australian Army Reserves have been mobilized (called up) to assist with things as far as the fires go.
Now, when I hear "PREPARED" in my mind I think of something along the lines of "Ready in advance" with all the necessary equipment and qualified human resources, i.e.
So when she says "We are prepared" then I call that pure and utter BS.
What she is saying is that "We are guilty of not ensuring the necessary equipment or qualified trained personnel in the field of fire fighting and disaster management, your taxes have been spent elsewhere. We don't have the necessary fresh water supplies as we have all in some way privatized them to the best bidders among those with whom we are in cahoots with and I am here trying to look like I really care, even if I and those before me did absolutely NOTHING to ensure the safety of life and property."
Again, politicians giving their spin and the mainstream media not stating it as it really is, but assisting the lies and disinformation being put out there by those in power.
I rest my case.
