Afghan betrayal cuts deep

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 31 August, 2012 - 8:49 AM
Should the killing of three Australian soldiers by an Afghan insurgent speed up our withdrawal from the area?

The killing of three Australian soldiers in Afghanistan by a rogue Afghansoldier has been labelled a massive betrayal of trust. Paul Murray spoke to military expert Ben Wadham from Flinders University about the insidious tactic.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Well, I am sure the entire world is terribly impressed with Julia Gillard from a personal perspective. However a national leader is expected to be something above ones personal desires and weaknesses. Unfortunately it is a lot more difficult to balance the accounts of a nation and present a credible account of a nation to the world as a whole than it is to spit watermelon seeds into a bowl of fried chicken. We have gone through a period of experimentation and tried new ground through several aspects in multiple nations over an extended period. The experiment has not only failed but it has brought the entire world to the brink of catastrophe. This will be the last time the people of the world are likely to venture into unknown territory and take such a risk for a very long time indeed. We will no doubt make similar mistakes and put further buffoons and dullards and cowards into office for a period to come. However it is becoming impossible to escape the fact that without honest, intelligent, impartial, strong and steadfast leadership, the world as a whole and every nation is ultimately doomed to financial and physical oblivion.
