Sorry if I'm going a little off topic here, but one thing I cannot stand is todays Australian soldiers being called, or calling themselves
"Diggers". That term was dedicated for a certain type of soldiers at a certain time. They dug the tunnels and ditches that they lived in and fought
from, hence the term "Digger's". None of todays Australian soldiers have any right to call themselves Diggers, and no one else should call them
that either. They are Australian soldiers yes, but until they perform the same deeds in the same environment and conditions as the real Digger's
endured, then they will just be Australian soldiers. I'm not saying they aren't as good as the Digger's, but they aren't Digger's in the true
sense of the word, therefore have no claim to this title !
But back on topic, it doesn't surprise me at all that a Government that agreed to illegally invade a country would then re-write the rules to escape
blame. Its been happening for over 100 years, why would they stop now when they keep getting away with it ?
