Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

The Aussie Conservative Blog supports the tenacious, principled, consistently conservative political activism of Cory Bernardi, along with his Australian Conservatives party.

More British troops could be on their way to Afghanistan as Nato considers mission boost

As more NATO troops are heading to Afghanistan, and with Australian military personnel still remaining in this tormented land, the million dollar question which has eluded Western leaders since 2001 still remains: what would/does victory in Afghanistan look like?
