Russia's been at war with the US for years – they just didn't know it


COMMENT Even Donald J. Trump, who'd been blocking his ears to the evidence for years, is coming around to acknowledge the depth and forcefulness of the Russian challenge to the US and its allies.

It's taken a while, but it seems that the US is starting to grasp the nature of the campaign that Russia has been waging against it for years.

Amazing photos on a special day your mates with you in spirit thank you for your service.

Thank you

My Brother In Law led the Queensland Police contingent in the Brisbane ANZAC Parade for a couple of years running some years ago. Respect for these people.

It was always a challenge and an honour to write the operation orders for this and the many other major City Anzac Day events in my time at Metro Area Office - 1967 to '82.

It should be called the no more Nazis march. That was the whole point you know

Get rid of the Nazis. Not let them in Australian government hello idiots

Cops are tops

Congratulations a job well down

This Contingent ,Smart ,Proud ,Tough

Let the traditions continue!

Great experience for me as guest of Manly Warringah Pipe Band! I was really touched and as Swiss a never forgetable day!!! 🇦🇺🇨🇭

Around Australia today, Anzac Day services are being held at dawn to remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in war and in service for their country. The spirit of Anzac and its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice continue to live on and have become an important part of our national identity. Hundreds of services and marches are held around the country throughout the day today including the National Ceremony held at the Australian War Memorial in Visit Canberra. If you’re heading to Canberra sometime, allow a few hours to visit the Memorial; it’s open 364 days and entry is via gold coin donation.

Once when I was in OZ, I was talking to some other Americans about going to see Fort Scratchley and a guy said "Australia has an army?" Being an American veteran, I said "Please don't say that in public. Everywhere we've been, they were with us and I can't in good conscience protect you from the mess you will find yourself in." Thank you for your service around the world.

My Great Uncle. After surviving Gallipoli he died at Moquet Farm France 8th August 1916 aged 21. Lest We Forget.

Visited this memorial a few days ago. Today is Anzac day, April 25.

Been there last year, beautiful place, just like we have here at Ypres Belgium, the Menin Gate.

At the going down of the sun, we will remember them. In memory of my grandfather Os Turnbull who fought at Gallipoli and in France. He came back with what is now known as PTSD - but sadly was never treated because nobody knew what to do........

We visited the Australian War Memorial in Dec 2016, it was very moving.

Thank you Boys, we will notforget

Thinking of my Aussie friends as they commerate Anzac Day

In Memory of my Uncle Henry Anthony Jowett Flying Officer RAAF WW2 who died at the age of 27 The Uncle I never got to meet as he died so young. Lest we forget these brave soldiers who gave their lives for our peace

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives . . . You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours . . . You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well." Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK

Thank you to all the vets for your service and sacrifice, god bless!!

استرالیا همیشه احمق بوده و خواهد ماند. تاریخ انگلیس شوم، قتل و کشتار در سراسر جهان است. اشتباه که دوباره نه صد باره میخواهد تکرار کند. اینبار همرای من و دگر مهاجرین میکند.

One of my best memories of any trip I have taken is having the honor to attend a pre-dawn ceremony, then the Brisbane parade, of ANZAC Day 2016. I dearly want to return Down Under and experience it again some day.

To our NZ neighbours and comrades across the ditch - Lest We Forget. 😓

yes..early here..but ANZAC day in AU and NZ..we remember in the U.S...

Learned this poem 50 years ago as a schoolgirl in Perth. Powerful. Never forget.

I have so many relatives who served in the services both women and men. My grandfather at the Western Front, my dad over the skies of Europe. To them I thank you. To all those that continue to serve this country I thank you

We visited the one in Melbourne too ...very nice...loved the flame always lit...

Thank You All For Your Service, Rest In Peace !!!

From the botton of my heart I send condolences and many blessings to all . Rest in Peace.

ANZAC Day much meaning and importance for the two Antipodean countries. No greater sacrifice

When I was growing up in Brisbane in the 70s and 80s, I never saw or heard mention of poppies, but they are all over war memorials today. I know their origin from the battlefields of France, but when were they introduced into ANZAC celebrations?

We're all Australians now. . Australia takes her pen In hand, To write a line to you, To let you fellows understand, How proud we are of you. . From shearing shed and cattle run, From Broome to Hobson’s Bay, Each native-born Australian son, Stands straighter up today. . The man who used to ‘hump his drum’ on far-out Queensland runs, Is fighting side by side with some, Tasmanian farmer’s sons. . The fisher-boys dropped sail and oar to grimly stand the test, Along that storm-swept Turkish shore with miners from the West. . The old state jealousies of yore, Are dead as Pharaoh’s sow, We’re not State children any more, We’re all Australians now!. . Our six-starred flag that used to fly, Half-shyly to the breeze, Unknown where older nations ply, Their trade on foreign seas. . Flies out to meet the morning blue, With vict’ry at the prow, For that’s the flag the Sydney flew, The wide seas know it now!. . The mettle that a race can show, Is proved with shot and steel, And now we know what nations know, And feel what nations feel. . The honoured graves beneath the crest, Of Gaba Tepe hill, May hold our bravest and our best, But we have brave men still. . With all our petty quarrels done, Dissentions overthrown, We have, through what you boys have done, A history of our own. . Our old world diff’rences are dead, Like weeds beneath the plough, For English, Scot, and Irish-bred, They’re all Australians now!. . So now we’ll toast the Third Brigade, That led Australia’s van, For never shall their glory fade, In minds Australian. . Fight on, fight on, unflinchingly, Till right and justice reign. Fight on, fight on, till victory, Shall send you home again. . And with Australia’s flag shall fly, A spray of wattle bough, To symbolize our unity, We’re all Australians now. . A B (Banjo) Paterson.

Google recently took the Street View trekker to Christmas Island Tourism and joined the island’s red crabs as they marched in the millions from the forest to the sea for their annual migration. Starting today on Google Maps Street View and Google Earth, you can explore Christmas Island's unique wildlife, dazzling ocean vistas and lush rainforests, including the grand finale of the red crab migration—the spawning. The red crabs wait all year for this very moment—and the precise alignment of the rains, moon and tides—to release their eggs at the coastal waters. Photo: Google

Christmas Island Tourism's "nowhere else in the world" attraction is its annual red crab migration, in which 60 million red land crabs make their way from their burrows in the forests down to the coast to spawn at the beginning of the wet season, forming carpets of crabs miles long. It's a spectacle that Sir David Attenborough has described as one of the greatest natural wonders on earth. Migration time is usually in late October and November, but you will see thousands carpeting the landscape at any time of year, especially in the forests. Photo: Faulkner Photography

Ioana... bucket list item?

Good morning Australia! This image is called "Get stuck in traffic"! Amazing nature!

Love this! See pictures of it on the internet every year. Never get tired of it!

I have never seen so many crabs in the one place!

I watched this on my saved programs on Foxtel only last night, so interesting.

This could be the origin of the phrase “Holy Crab!!!”

Omg! How beautiful is your country ! If I ever have the time and money I am going to see this country !

Minjung Jo really want to see them

Saw this on a David Attenborough program, many years ago.

That's my kind of traffic jam ;)

Dawn Irl..this is a bit crabbie 😂😂😂😂

Joshua Denney - something for you to look forward to.

Used to live there for years in Government House. Dad was the Manager of the Island it is an amazing place to grow up.

My son visited Christmas Island when he was on Patrol Boats and said if you stood still long enough they would be all over you.

Butter, garlic, and a boiling pot of water. Game on!!

Neat. Had lil crabs coming from a lagoon to our outdoor tree home floor in a jungle at Costa Rica.The night was alive with jungle insect sounds and scruffling sounds of crabs moving about.

Soma Mazumder I know you might cringe... But add this also in our bucket list 😁

Amy and Geoff!! I'm going to have to be sedated the entire time when I visit. 😲😟😭😨😰😬😳🤠🙏💊

Nicole C Smith or run them all over accidentally because one was trying to get through the crack in the sliding door all night.

I think they're cool and all but that many of them all around me could make me strongly want to get away haha :P

With the right alarmist caption and a share into some environmentalist groups, we can incite a global warming panic (!)

We'd like to apologise for this shot. Wayne's not normally in such a bad mood - he's just not his usual happy self on Mondays, which is understandable! Thankfully, the other turtles that live on Visit Queensland, Australia's Great Barrier Reef Marine Park are very polite and love to swim with humans. We're really not sure why Wayne's got his knickers in such a knot (even on a Monday), as he lives in the beautiful clear waters surrounding Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort in the Southern Great Barrier Reef, which is basically paradise. Oh well, lucky tomorrow is a Tuesday! Photo: Mark Fitz Photography

Haha! Love it!!! My dream to see turtles and baby turtles. Save the turtle!!!

Wayne and I are *definitely* on the same page about Mondays! ;-)

Yes, even turtles 🐢🐢🐢 can get pi*sed off sometime. We should treat them with respect.😉😉😉
