On the 347th day since he was sworn in as Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott has this country participating in someone else's civil war
Prime Minister Tony Abbott was a minister in the Howard federal government when Australia formed part of the unlawful invasion force in Iraq 2003.
This invasion created the circumstances which led to the current Iraq civil war.
Now Tony Abbott has abandoned any pretence of reluctance and on 31 August 2014 has committed this country to entering this civil war as a military participant delivering weapons to one side in the sectarian armed conflict.
Hypocritically calling this entry into the war a humanitarian mission.
All because he and his government are increasingly unpopular with the majority of voters at home and he hopes to deflect them with jingoism, fifes and drums.
