General Cosgrove

 

Major General  Peter Cosgrove is an 'Australian  treasure!' 
General Cosgrove  was interviewed on the radio recently.  
This is a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove

who was  about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military Headquarters. 





FEMALE  INTERVIEWER:
 

So, General Cosgrove, what things are you  going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL  COSGROVE:
 

We're going to teach them climbing,  canoeing, archery and shooting. 

FEMALE  INTERVIEWER: 
 

Shooting! That's a bit  irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
 

I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle  range.

FEMALE  INTERVIEWER:
Don't you admit that this is a terribly  dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
  

I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline  before they even touch a firearm. 

FEMALE  INTERVIEWER:
   

But you're equipping them to become  violent killers.

GENERAL  COSGROVE:
  

Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a  prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

 

The  radiocast went silent for 46  seconds and when it returned, the interview was  over.
