Gods speed to the 5 Aussie warriors that paid the ultimate sacrifice yesterday.
For gods sake bring them all home now..Don't wait like Vietnam.
The British marched into Afghanastan with 4000 soldiers and left with 4.
No doubting the bravery of the fine soldiers but I do doubt the logic of politicans.
As the Post above ^^ May they rest in peace.
Regards Errol 43
I only feel sorry for their families.
It's a tough one, but I want us to get out of this war, it cant be won, it wont be won. RIP the fallen
Lest we Forget
Condolences to all friends and families for their losses.
I feel ashamed that Australians allowed politicians to send our soldiers to a phoney war that has absolutely nothing to do with Australia.
Hey Luke ^^^^^^^^ drunk post!
I agree. If people hadn't listened to their lies we wouldn't even be discussing this, they would still be alive.
Spot on Errol. Condolences to those families and loved ones left behind
With you there wilrocks, how those responsible for sending them there can lay their head down and sleep at night.
You know what I think is ironic? We are possibly getting boat people refugees from Afghanistan, due to them being displaced by this war that we're fighting, and we're looking at ways to 'stop the boats'.
One way might be to stop fighting people on their soil and contributing to the displacement.
+1 Bingo !
What ever noble sentiments were behind going there in the first place was not thought through. Get our troops home, and so it quickly.
That is a long bow to draw. The fighting is going to continue regardless of wether we are there or not. We are supporting a side that is far less likely to persecute innocent civilians because they want to live thier lives a certain way. To leave and reduce the pressure on the Taliban, who if allowed to become even stronger, would only increase the pressure on people to flee thier home country.
Wether we should be there or not is a side point, the case that our presence inflates refugee numbers is a very weak one.
I love how the news tells us the whole nation is mourning over these 3 that died..
Haha oh really?
PS: I'm really trying to hold in my true feelings.... so far so good.
Nuke the lot of them.
No no tell us what you really think.
Ernster, would you please explain exactly what you mean by this, and also explain your meaning of post # 3.
