Random Pagan Verse:
The High Priestess shall rule her coven as the representative of the Goddess,
and the High Priest shall support her as the representative of the God. The High Priestess will
choose any member of the coven to be her High Priest, if he has sufficient standing in the coven.
As the God Himself kissed our Ladys feet, gave Her the five-fold salute, and offered Her His power
because of Her youth and beauty, Her sweetness and kindness, Her wisdom and justice, Her humility,
gentleness and generosity, and shared His power with Her, so therefore the High Priestess should
always be aware that all power comes from Him; it is only lent, to be used wisely and justly.

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has sent four war planes into Syria for its first operational mission against Islamic State (Isis) fighters in the war-ravaged country. The Australian Air Task Group (ATG) returned to a base in the Middle East without firing any weapons in its first mission.

The ATG provided the aerial support as part of an international collaboration against IS. The Australian air force had previously supported strikes in neighbouring Iraq.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced on Wednesday that the Australian government would increase its intake of Syrian refugees by another 12,000, as well as expanding its air operations against terrorist forces. "Our planes are now striking at terrorist targets inside Syria as well as in Iraq too," Abbott said according to ABC News.

Fighting a 'death cult'

The fleet included two RAAF F/A-18 Hornets, an air-to-air refuelling aircraft, and an early warning and control aircraft combined during the mission but no weapons were released. "I emphasise that our aircraft will be targeting Daesh [IS], not the Assad regime, evil though it is," Abbott said.

"This is very much in Australia's national interest. Destroying this death cult is essential, not just to ending the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East but also to ending the threat to Australia and the wider world."

The decision to increase Australia's military presence in Syria follows Iraq's calls for international assistance in the region, as well as a formal request from the United States government for more military help. ATG Commander, Air Commodore Stu Bellingham said the RAAF Hornets searched points of interest in eastern Syria, whilst reporting to the international coalition's Combined Air Operations Centre.
