I thought that it might be time for a history lesson.
As my readers know, I am forthright. Yet to be found wanting with the truth.
An Australian saved Britain and the US in world war two.
Without a doubt you would all be wearing different colours if not for the action of one lone Australian. The brave and no doubt mighty US Marine Corps would have at least a million more killed in battle if not for that same lone Australian.
He was a very bright man. Humble. I don't intend to debate his regrets about nuclear weapons because he insisted that solar power would eventually empower us all.
He once showed the proof on a napkin that the unused desert of South Australia could provide the power for Australia and several Asian nations. He was a promoter of solar power beyond all else.
The US knew diddly about nuclear weapons in WW2 before this Australian took the risky journey, risking a life that had developed radar and numerous other essential-for-victory technologies in England, as it was called, to run the gauntlet to America.
He was met with blank looks and dismissal more than once before one bright connected individual in the United States listened to him and thus the Manhattan project was born.
There would have been no bomb for the US had he not been courageous and tenacious as well as brilliant.
He saved your asses.
Julian Assange is an Australian. He is seriously brilliant. He'll be saving you this time. Like it or not yet again an Aussie to the rescue. Best not underestimate them.
Can you name the unmentioned Aussie who's lone actions and determination altered the course of world war two?
