Field Marshal Angus throws another shrimp on Bin Laden's barbie
The Aussies are fighting alongside NATO troops in Afghanistan, but they draw the line at eating alongside NATO troops, at least the Dutch ones!
"Australia's soldiers fighting in Afghanistan are up in arms, over Dutch food.
A special team of Australian military cooks had been rushed to Afghanistan to produce "Aussie food" after scores of soldiers complained about the Dutch-run mess at Tirin Kot military base, in southern Uruzgan province, parliament was told Wednesday.
"I think the issue is that it's not Aussie food, it's European food. It's true that people have been quite strong in their views about the European food," Australia's military commander Air Chief Marshal told lawmakers at a special defence budget hearing."
Yes people, you read that right. Air Chief Marshal Angus!
"Houston said the Dutch-prepared food was generally nutritious, but was not as fresh as Australians were generally accustomed to in their diets.
"We listen to our people. Our people have indicated that they'd like some Aussie food," Houston said."
If I was an Aussie soldier, I would press on this margin until Marshal Angus is worn out!
