Ahh it appears I must bow down to your insults. yours are ok, mine are obviously the stuff of hades.
you know what, I don't care what you think. What I said in my post stands.
If you don't like it, too bad really, I stand up for the men and women of this country who put their lives on the line. you choose not to. And denigrate them. Your posts stand, mine fall.
GO with it. We need more left wing shoe shiners around this place. All knowing how to do war, but always from the home arm chair.

Setting aside the rights or wrongs of Australia's involvement in the Afghan conflict.It would appear that the unit in question received "intelligence" on the location of Taliban fighters/supporters who had been involved in recent"blue on green" attacks involving Australian forces.Now,it shouldn't come as any great surprise that in a combat zone,errors are made,that is a given,and it may(or may not) be the case that innocents were targetted by Australian forces,but instead of castigating the troops themselves,who are fighting in an incredibly difficult environment,you need to keep the pressure up on those who would send them there,at least you Australians seem to be one of the few nations who don't buy into all the Jingoistic bull# that seems to be the norm these days.
Now, if only we in the UK could grow a collective pair and join you in your condemnation.edit on 3-9-2012 by nake13 because: -edit on 3-9-2012 by nake13 because: .
