Tony Abbott Internationally Ridiculed over “Goodies and Baddies” Speech
The bloody war in Syria has been called a case of “goodies” versus “baddies” by Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
As world leaders gathered in Switzerland to try to find a solution to the complex mess, Tony Abbott gave his take on the situation.
“The difficulty in Syria is that – as I famously, perhaps infamously said during the election campaign – it often seems like a case that involves baddies versus baddies” he said.
“I guess the best way for all of them to demonstrate that at least some of them are goodies is to lay down their arms and try to ensure that the conflict… starts to subside.”
Last time Abbott invoked the analogy he was lampooned as being the “John Wayne school of international relations” by political opponent Kevin Rudd.
Over 100,000 Syrians been killed in the dispute between the goodies and baddies.
