      Australia the safest place to live! FACT!!!

      Forget all the stats check out the movies where do people always bomb, always attack?! America, Britain etc you never see an attack on Australia.

      Now Australia may have crime etc but when aliens come a calling and attack I know where I want to be, how about you?

      Geoffrey there was a terrorist attack on the Turkish consulate in Melbourne in 1986 and the bombings at the bomb that went off outside the Australian embassy in Jakarta in 2004 was clearly directed at Australia,as were the Bali bombings.
      The fact that we haven't had a major terrorist attack in Australia is more down to good luck and good intelligence than the fact that we aren't a target.
      I'm afraid that like it or not Australia is as much at risk of a terrorist attack as most western nations.

      I agree in principle Geoff, but Australia is extremely aware of the possibilities, here on the coast security (the Ports and Gas Works) has become more stringent "in the event of attacks" and the Bali bombings were in a way an attack on the Australian people. A huge percentage of Australians frequent Bali so its an easy target imo.
      Give it time Geoff (unfortunately) Susie

      Don't let facts and stats get in the way Nigel, we are talking real life here and in the MOVIES Australia is never attacked! We all know movies are real life don't we?

      I thought maybe a little light heartedness was needed

      The scary thing is that people really do believe Australia is vastly safer than somewhere like the UK.

      The statistics don't support that conclusion at all.

      But you're right. Aliens and their like tend not to bother attacking Australia. What would be the point, after all?!

      Lol - very funny Geoff, I loved this one. Good to know i'm safe from aliens and terrorist attacks and that my JetStar flight will never get highjacked. Just need to watch out for the hoons and bogans

      Thanks for putting a smile on my face - it will keep me going through all the chores I have to do today.

      Sydney got blown up in Independence Day, so I think as long as you live anywhere but Sydney you'll be OK.
      Phew!
