You're lucky it wasn't pork Abdul!

Now no need for to be like that. We were only invading lands which you invaded. What's the problem?

Americans never invaded.
They 'intervened' to save threatened minority groups from 'persecution; and 'dictators'...

Sound familiar?

Anyway, for those that might be interested.

ANZAC Day is extremely important to the countries of Australia and New Zealand. Other countries commemorate it with the Australians such as Ireland, UK and France.

ANZAC Day does not only pertain to Gallipoli in modern day Turkey.

The ANZACS also served in Villers Brettoneux in France. Sadly, losses were even higher in France.

When the ANZACs stormed the ANZAC Cove beaches, the Australian Military was at war as a sovereign country. A legend and a country were born.

That's its significance, and it brings all Australians together to commemorate the fallen of all wars.

The Anzac spirit
The legend of Anzac was born on 25 April 1915, and was reaffirmed in eight months' fighting on Gallipoli. Although there was no military victory, the Australians displayed great courage, endurance, initiative, discipline, and mateship. Such qualities came to be seen as the Anzac spirit.

Many saw the Anzac spirit as having been born of egalitarianism and mutual support. According to the stereotype, the Anzac rejected unnecessary restrictions, possessed a sardonic sense of humour, was contemptuous of danger, and proved himself the equal of anyone on the battlefield.

Australians still invoke the Anzac spirit in times of conflict, danger and hardship.

The word "Anzac", however, has different meanings for different people, and so remains open to interpretation.

I wouldn't say that it was us that got bitch slapped.

Sure we lost that battle and had to tactically withdraw, but the ANZACs had your measure and Attaturk knew it too. At astute just kept sending his endless stream of troops to a quick death.

Did you know that it was ANZAC Troops who were the first to smash through the German Hindenburg Line this time under the Command of Australia's General Monash?

General Monash by the way was the first allied commander to reconfigure theatre operations from breast against machine gun fire to someone who refused to do this and instead use airpower and armour to cover the troops.

General Monash was never a fan of the British Officers over what they did. Neither was Churchill, Charles Bean or Keith Murdoch who explicitly told the British that their stuffy "Officers" are not worthy to have command over any Australian troops ever again.

General Monash was very much loved by the French and other allied countries.
