All this puts the profession of troops literally trained to kill in a bad light.

To paraphrase "Apocalypse Now" - is it like handing out speeding tickets in the Bathurst 1000?

Aidan,

I disagree with you. If I thought the way you do, I would have said so. If I want your advice, I'll let you know.

I've got a few questions.

Does anyone know something about Australia's
military justice system? I'm unclear as to who
prosecutes ADF members for serious criminal
conducts?

Are soldiers tried by a system of military tribunals?
By their peers? Or are they tried in Commonwealth
Criminal Courts?

How does it all work?

Once again this behaviour by Australians shows the senseless nature of war. Australia is far too eager to please, with our sycophantic cow-tailing to the United States. The on the ground culprits who carried out these murderous acts, and their manipulars, of course need to be punished, but just as guilty are the warmongering politicians who committed Australians to such an unjustifiable war. I ask why are we there?

I don't believe this is a one off, one war aberration, Australians just like others, have carried out all kinds of atrocities, in all wars we have slavishly involved ourselves in. Time to rethink our foreign policy direction, tear up ANZAS and go it alone.

So, ttbn, when China invades Australia and its soldiers shoot unarmed civilians, you won't fuss if the Chinese government does nothing to stop this? After all, you think that any country that goes after its own troops sent into danger to fight a totally unnecessary war is beyond the pale.
