Paul,

"In Scorched Earth, Black Snow: Britain and Australia in the Korean War, 1950, Second-Lieutenant Owen Light, who was an officer with the Argylls in the conflict, describes ordering his men to kill wounded North Korean soldiers lying among the dead on the battlefield because they allegedly had live hand-grenades concealed beneath their bodies."

That's not a war crime it's just common sense.

The Argylls are not Australian soldiers, surprised?

Hi Issy,

The book I refer to is available, I obtained a copy some time back from my local library. At the time I gave you more excerpts detailing atrocities committed by Australians in Korea. Until the advent of body cams and mobile phones, much of theses things came down to one persons word against another. Read it if you wish and judge for yourself.

Paul,

The book is not evidence, it is 'hearsay', likewise your link to the Australian which was nothing but allegations; allegations are not evidence.

If you won't get a spellcheck at least get a dictionary.

Hi Issy,

What you claim as hearsay, others might claim as uncorroborated evidence. As we know the lies and the cover-ups often prevent these things from being tested in a court of law. Many a criminal has gotten away behind the shroud of secrecy that exists within the army.

More hearsay; don't you know what the word evidence means?
