Taliban hail rogue Afghan soldier as hero


www.smh.com.au

The renegade Afghan soldier who shot and killed an Australian digger is reportedly being hailed as a hero by the Taliban.

Lance Corporal Andrew Jones was shot as he stood sentry duty in the Chora Valley with a supposed ally, who then escaped.

According to tribal elders in the region, the Afghan soldier has since been adorned with fake flowers by a Taliban commander and paraded around as a hero on the back of a motorbike, News Ltd reports.

so how does the government explain this to the families.

how do they explain that their son was sent over to a war zone and killed. in a battle.....NO. Im sorry mr and mrs Jones...your son was shot in the back while on point duty by a mongrel who we gave weapons too, helped train up, allowed him into the safety of our bases and he then shoots our brave soldier in the back!

when will this madness end. bring them all home now. the enemy wont fight like men as they know they cant beat us in a fair fight.

Its odd though how the other side will use the same rational, "dirty mongrels that invaded our country"

has nothing to do with winning a fair fight, it would only be fair if they had billions and fighter jets too, they fight how they do to "WIN" either way I agree that the US should pull out but not because the other team wont play fair in war.

Simple fact is we shouldn't have been there in the first place..
We have slaughtered countless thousands of innocent civilians while supposedly saving them from the Taliban..
We may have killed this guys entire family for all I know..

Though I don't condone this Afghans actions, I can see why the allies are despised by many Afghans..

Not like I respect soldiers for being led to wars like children to candy
But hmmm you are paying for this crap to happen.
Why is America even in pakistan? To stop opium growth?
Or thats what you are lead to believe in whilst they smuggle tons of heroin into US Borders.

I don't like the way Americans always ask for a good leader to "lead" them when
they should take things into their hands and stop being the sheep.

i can see all the above points of view. i agree if the shoe was on the other foot, and they were in our country we would do all we could.

in that case ..... i review my above statements but i still think we should come home. bring all the troops home and leave them to their own in fighting. its just vietnam/korea all over.

op this is possibly the dumbest thing i've read today, you speak of a fair fight. well tell me whats fair about american fighters, strategic bombers and tactical jets dropping bombs on the enemy from the air? are you fighting like men?

as much as I hate the taliban your comment is ignorant, the taliban are fighting with no technology. your army on the other hand has the best technology and they still choose to kill off the enemy from the air.

Small point, but where does it state he was shot in the back??
Or is that merely to make it sound more sinister?

What a load of crap!
Australian ASIO spies at their best here.

To the Taliban this Australian is just another infidel soldier, he is nothing special. How many Americans, Afghani military, english etc etc are killed daily?

To believe this man who shot an Australian is being hailed is a load of crap.

This is the Australian Government/ASIO attempting to agit8 the Australian population into backing this war.

Support for this ill fated war is losing ground, and with each death it just loses further ground, so why not try to enrage the public by thinking an Australians death is being applauded.

I know you kind of retracted part of this statement, but this is the kind of thinking which leads me to feel utter despair.

Are you seriously trying to say that the allies fight fair? They never invade a country with an army equal to or stronger than their own. Can you even tell me that they respect the Geneva convention?

Here, let me remind you some of the things they do:

:Let's start with a quote from Kissinger: "Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy."

YES....yes i did retract part of my original statement. please, maybe its the fact that im going through the death of a boy very close to me who died mothers day aged 14 that i just cant handle any death at the moment that just seems so sensless. any death of someone young, no matter what just seems a absolute waste. why cant we stop the deaths and the killing....for christ sake we are supposed to be the superior species. just freaking stop it all on both sides.

did you actually use the word mongrel?

you should be ashamed

I too am sorry for your loss, but you should consider that a fair amount of people who actually live in that country have lost their loved ones too.

People who never asked for our brave soldiers, or brave soldiers from anywhere, to be there in the first place. Many times their lost loved ones were innocents - all lost at the hands of brave soldiers.

War is not a pretty thing bellagirl. Our need to feel righteous and superior is sometimes the only thing that sees us through. These attempts to rationalize only polish the ugly off the surface of a war just long enough for us to feel OK about our involvement.

Maybe we will actually be a superior species, and all the death and killing will stop when we can treat everyone on this planet with respect and lose this notion that some of us are not only superior, but 'more' superior.
