Three wise monkeys

Those three wise monkeys, Messrs Howard, Downer and Ruddock, must have been delighted at the alerting and alarming headline ‘Nuclear plant target for stolen rocket launchers’ (SMH Jan 6-7). Such alarmist tirades provide support for their way over the top anti-terrorist legislation which makes a mockery of the civil liberties they are supposed to protect.  The rocket launchers are less than 2 kilos of recyclable plastic which are thrown away after a single firing; the rockets stored in the launchers and the complete weapon would just about take out the average family car.
