Rescuers at the scene of a refugee boat accident near Australia’s Christmas Island.

A boat carrying 130 asylum-seekers has capsized near Australia’s Christmas Island in a second such incident this week.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority announced earlier that two merchant vessels had been dispatched to the scene on a rescue operation.

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard said at least 125 people have been rescued so far.

On June 24, another boat carrying Indonesian asylum seekers sank south of the Sunda Strait in Indonesia. Rescuers managed to save 110 people. Seventeen bodies have been recovered. The rest are still unaccounted for.

The incident on Wednesday is the latest in a series of refugee boat disasters in recent years. Most of the vessels are poorly maintained and overloaded, carrying migrants in search of a better life in Australia.

Indonesia suffers from a weak and unsafe naval transportation network. Its 240-million-strong population is heavily dependent on the means of travel, though.

    The governments of the countries from where these asylum seekers come from need to make their countries more livable so that their destitute citizens don’t become boat people and risk their lives.If only these destitute people that come to Australia for a better way of life would understand that they will not have a better way of life in Australia because they have no job skills that are in demand and when one of these asylum seekers get a job it is a minimum wage job and they will need some government subsidys.Another problem with these types of migrants is that they don’t have any money when arriving to Australia to buy or rent a house and will have to be confined to a detention center.

    • WeisseTodt

      I would just sink the boat, then they become fish food, that is better than living in Mexico or Indonesia

      Not that dire and more of a reason to come is that they get housing, benefits and all sorts of welfare support. Why bother to work. Far more comfortable than living in Indonesia. Thus, the vast majority are economic migrants that are breaching Australia borders, are illegal and jumping the quo. Many pay large sums to get on the boat. They could use the resource to apply formally and be refused as a number of them have previously before that booked a boat trip.

The bleeding hearts and other clowns fail to see the risk to Australia of not maintaining the integrity of countries borders. Even, when in detention they have committed crimes – many people here don’t want them and certainly don’t want them living near them.

  • Jeri

    I like WeisseTodt’s solution. Its simple.

    THIS IS AN INVASION! Screw “asylum seekers”.

  • Damien

    None of us can really understand their reasons unless we put ourselves into their shoes. What would you do if you were borned in those countries that people are fleeing? What would you do when you loose all hopes in your country, or your family is executed, or simply you know you’ll die staying there. Would you just except your faith and die? Or would you try to escape? Sure, you can say screw them and kill them as soon as they arrive at your beaches. What makes you different than them? Just borned in a different country.

    • Nexus789

      Mate…I tell you what you put them up at your gaff. Your feed them and take the risk that they are not what they seem.

      Also you will find many of them have already applied through normal channels to migrate to Australia and have been rejected and pay thousands to get on a boat while at the same time destroying their documents. They are ECONOMIC migrants and they know they will get free housing, benefits and welfare if they are let in.

    Damion,

    Go play your violin somewhere else. And wait until you’ve had children and struggled a bit in life.

    Life is not fair. There will ALWAYS be those in poverty and those in need.

    And if you look around you, you will see, unless you are blind, that it is ALWAYS the darker skinned people who have the cesspit nations. (and even Western cities, when they reach critical mass.)

    And no! Don’t you even try to blame White people for that. We bought them sanitation and a much higher standard of life than they had before our arrival.

    We educated and fed them and they turn on us DEMANDING more!

    Their burgeoning population attests that the net effect of my race has been a positive for THEM and and extreme negative FOR MY RACE.

    You cannot blame me, NOR DO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE IN THIS NATION HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEMAND THAT ALL OF US BE BURDENED WITH THESE MASSES, who in spite of everything Western society has tried to teach them, they still cannot self rule without great oppression.

    Now we can argue the finer points and go on endlessly, but the overall and over arching validity of my statement stands the test of historical documentation.

    If you want to throw your own money at those poor starving masses, then feel free. But if you advocate that others be forced to do the same, then you are a thug and a thief.

    You do realize that there are people IN THIS COUNTRY AND OTHER NATIONS OF THE WEST, who are barely making do. They have to do without food sometimes. They will not go on welfare because they do not believe in stealing.

    Why aren’t Americans worried about Americans? WTF is up with all this bleeding heart crap FOR EVERYONE ELSE, and screw fellow Americans?

    Or how about all the nations of the West? The entire WORLD is blessed because of the unique nature of the West (Philosophy, art, science). And if White people are ALWAYS targeted for assimilation or destruction, who will build the great nations after we are gone?

    Who will stop them from being as they were – Cannibals, and sadists (AND THAT IS A FACT!)

    Never does the bleeding heart look past what “feeeeeeeeeeeeeeels good” at the moment.

    Never does the bleeding heart look ahead.

    And never looking back at their actions, they skip merrily along, leaving even greater destruction in their wake.

  • Damien

    So you’re saying they should stay where they are and die. Fine. Just know that we are living in a world where we let less fortunate people die. Know that you are contributing to that world. I would feel very sad that we all have this level of thinking. They should die before they crowd our cities and ruin our economies. Maybe you’re the realist and I’m the violin player. If your idea is implemented, we’ll have great seperation between rich and poor. While poor dies out of hunger, we’ll live our lives with more than enough resources and no care about what’s happening in other side of the world. Good for our race, bad for our species. I want to belong to group of species that actually care for each other. But I know you don’t like that tune.

    • Nexus789

      Yes…

    • Nexus789

      They are not in any danger in any of the countries they are coming from.

  • Damien

    Also wanted to say something about Americans thinking about Americans first. America teaches the world how everything is money and marketing. America leads the world on outsourcing. Exporting the labor out to cheap places, caring only about business and profit. Not a care about what will the unemployes people will do in their neigborhoods or country. Worse part is, there is no hope that this will change anytime soon. We will need a catastrophic meltdown of our economic system to realize we’re fcking ourselves in our own arses.

    I swear to g-d you LIEberals are all alike. I NEVER SAID THAT IDIOT. Go back to school. Get some reading comprehension under your belt.

    I AM SAYING THAT THEY MUST DO THE SAME THING THAT I HAD TO DO AND APPARENTLY EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET EXCEPT YOU LIEBERALS, ‘CAUSE YOU WHINE AND THINK LIKE SPOILED ROTTEN BRATS WHO’VE NEVER HAD TO PAY YOUR OWN WAY!

    Other people in other countries will either tolerate the oppression OR THEY WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT OTHER THAT COMING TO OTHER PEOPLES’ NATIONS…

    Where they IMMEDIATELY set about DESTROYING THE NATIVE WESTERN CULTURE AND COUNTRY. DEMANDING NOW THAT EVEN THEIR BENEFACTORS MUST SUFFER FOR THEIR BENEFIT…

    Because what they really want it an easy life. If they really wanted to be free from oppression…THEY WOULD FIGHT FOR IT LIKE EVERY SAXON HAS HAD TO DO.

    You want ME AND MY PEOPLE, to build the great societies and then establish a socialistic NIGHTMARE that these interlopers can then suck ME AND MY PEOPLE DRY.

    YOU LIEberals are evil LIARS. You hate MY PEOPLE and that makes you my enemy. You HIDE behind compassion like all subversives, but that does not fool me one bit.

    This is the EXACT SAME THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO EVERY GREAT SOCIETY MY RACE HAS BUILT.

    NOT THIS TIME. THIS TIME WE WILL FIGHT PEOPLE LIKE YOU. YOU WILL NOT DESTROY THIS NATION. THERE IS NO PLACE LEFT FOR US TO MOVE AND CREATE YET ANOTHER GREAT NATION FOR OTHER RACES TO DESTROY.

    I am NOT A BLEEDING HEART LIEberal. But I have MORE LOVE and MORE COMPASSION for the people doing the heavy lifting than others who also seem to need to mooch off my kinspeople.

    You LIEberals LIE…you say you love, but you do not! You hate my people and my race and think that WE should ALWAYS be the ones providing the food, clothing, shelter and form of government THEY NEITHER UNDERSTAND NOR APPRECIATE AND WOULD IMMEDIATELY SET OUT TO DESTROY!

    Unless a person is White, SCREW THE HUNGRY TIRED AND POOR. THEY ARE THAT WAY FOR A REASON. THE REASON NEVER CHANGES. AND LEFT TO THE OWN DEVICES, THAT IS EXACTLY HOW THEY WOULD NORMALLY LIVE OUT THEIR LIVES.

    GROW UP!

    Except this has nothing to do with “America” as evidenced by the fact that this article is about Australia…or haven’t you heard?

    Where ever my race has gone, they have always fed the world. We invent, then the blacks TRY to take credit. We create wonderful things and the jew immediately seeks to use it in the most evil ways. We work hard, and the lesser races stand around DEMANDING that we give them a cut of our hard work.

    THESE THINGS WILL STOP IN ALL WESTERN LANDS AND WE WILL START BY ELIMINATING EDOM (THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES JEWS)

    With the literal children of the devil out of the way, the television and other air waves will be cleared of their filth and the banks will be restored to a sound manner WITHOUT JEWISH USURY!

    We will clear the lands of the West of this FILTH infesting it! Then the lesser races will have a choice, move to your native lands (blacks BACK TO AFREAKA; Oriental, BACK TO THE ORIENT.

    My Western culture and my White race is absolutely superior to ANY and ALL other races and cultures. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXIST JUST AS THE BLACKS CLAIM THEY DO, THE CHINESE CLAIM THEY DO AND THE JEWS CLAIM THEY DO (a claim they are NOT entitled to nor will they get!)

  • Gasser

    No one ever mentions the almighty orgasm factor that produces the overpopulation syndrome that is fueled by many justifications…I could go on and on but those that need to be educated about not crapping in their water well’s have not the capacity to comprehend and will take us all down in a short time…also remember Fukushima is spewing slow death world wide, this will drastically thin out the planets population in the next 10-20 years.

    • Damien

      Gasser,

      You’re absolutely right, if nothing else does, overpopulation will kill us anyway. And it will come from the least educated, least regulated people of the earth. I don’t think those people are to blame. They are living in sub-animal conditions and will act like sub-animals. We can’t expect them to act like educated, cultured people. It will take them forever to get where we are without our help. Only people with small understanding (like James above) would blame them.

      Also about Fukushima, if that thing causes some kind of a mass extinction, who is to blame? Japan? US? Or the idea of generating electricity by nuclear reaction? Not considering the dangers involved?

  • Damien

    James,

    “My Western culture and my White race is absolutely superior to ANY and ALL other races and cultures.”

    Aaaa, how about a good old FUCK YOU AND YOUR CULTURE!!
    Without the jews and blacks, you wouldn’t even exist. I don’t like zionists any more than you do, but I know they bought all your politicians and you’re their slaves. You’ll work to ensure the security of Zion. Bow to your Zionists maseters and don’t complain because they are listening.

  • Damien

    James,

    “We educated and fed them and they turn on us DEMANDING more!”

    You hunted them in africa, brought them over to your county as slaves, didn’t even pay them for the work they do. Demanding more? All they wanted was to be treated equal, but to you it is demanding more.
    Admit it man, you’re as racist as one can get. You think your white race is superior to all others, but even you know, you’re full of shit. One thing history showed us that there is no superior race or country for eternity. Your dominance of the world will too come to an end, sooner or later. I think it already showing signs of collapse. See how your racist attitude will reward you in a new world.

  • graham

    the vast majority of australians welcome and support asians and africans coming to this vast brown land of ours, we have plenty of room, apart from scare mongering of 5% racists who politicians and media want to here, the other 95% of us dont get heard because its not sensationalism

  • I would do just nothing they are only Subhumans and they should live where they came from. Australia is doing the right thing by not picking them up or transporting these animals away from the civilized entities.
