New defence minister for Oz appointed, in the form of Kevin Andrews.

He can be charitably described as an incompetent and dim Bible-bashing moonbat who shouldn't even be in Cabinet.

If only there was an emoticon for throwing-up.....

So Rob Anders has an Aussie cousin?

In short, yes. 

I think most of our troubles with procurement, retention, etc. can almost be substituted with "ADF" vice "CAF".  However, the ADF seems to be less fearful of Foreign Military Sales (C-17, etc.) which may or may not be Australian-ized. 

I also get this feeling that because the three services are separate (no combined Basic Training, little to no contact with the other services even in what we call "purple" trades), they understand each other even less than our elements understand each other.  This is little less so in the officer world as the ADF Academy (RMC) is Tri-Service. 
Have you seen any results from their Chief of Capability Development Group?
