Bush Fires

Already this summer we have seen quite significant bush fire events across Australia with loss of life, property, infrastructure, domestic/native animals and a high risk burden put upon emergency services and of course lets not forget, many volunteers.
I read in this Forum recently that a DC 10 & a C130 were leased & on standby to be used in the event of a breakout similar to that we have seen recently.
At this stage I haven't seen any Media Footage of these resources being utilised to help combat these situations.
Could almost guarantee that if there was the slightest 'sneeze' of a disaster on the International scene, quite likely $20m would be made available straight away.
Would start to think that it's time to forget all the political correctness/intent & policy and get a touch of reality and look after the ones that matter the most, AUSTRALIANS.
This is not a new or unique problem, it flows across all levels of Government, Federal/State/Local and has done since way back when, it's all about the mighty vote.
Unfortunately can't see any change to the current system in the near future.
