RBA Governor Phil Lowe has given the green light for the Australian Army to deploy it’s M1 Abrams tanks to prevent unrest, when bank bail-in legislation is enacted later this year.
Following similar scenes in China, the tanks will be deployed out the front of the RBA and most major banks before bail-in laws are enacted and Australian deposits are confiscated around September.
“We thank the ADF for their assistance in these uncertain times. We thought inflation might have been the trigger for martial law but they got plenty of practice during COVID,” Lowe said.
“We can’t use these tanks in most situations in Australia domestically but we’ve finally found their one purpose – crushing urban civil unrest from years of economic mismanagement.”
Lowe has also hinted UN ‘blue helmet’ troops stand ready to back up the ADF and eventually assume control of operations if things get out of hand.
