This is rather fascinating. if this were Israel and this occurred in the Gaza it would be called what it is 'murder pure and simple'.
But in the land of Oz where we can do no wrong and we are just fundamentally 'Good Blokes'-this gets wrapped up in euphemistic clinical language and 'covering one -rse' with terms like 'rules of engagement'-to appear in an article or two and then be forgotten forever....like it never occurred.
Something tells me however that the bullets in the 'Kiddies' came from the Australian army weaponry.

It was bound to happen eventually, as horrible as it is. Compared to other armed forces the Australians seem to have a near impeccable record and im sure like most war time civilian casualties are incurred it wasnt meant to happen, but 5 kids to one insurgent isnt the best ratio. Sadly while there is armed conflict anywhere there will always be these tradgedies.

why is it now people always compare Afganistan and other countries to Israel?
Afganistan isnt a Land Grab where people from the United States, UK, Jordon, Australia and other countries have gone into to take land from the afgan people.

This Sucks big time and should be looked into
to many families are being Killed in afganistand by air strikes and other forms by US and other forces.
Also the Teleban seem to have gotton some balls from somewhere as they are starting to get more active in attacks
