    Perhaps the Taliban will also set up a compensation fund for the families of their victims, including the families of all the Australian, American, British, Russian, et al servicemen they killed; and the families of the victims of 9/11; and the families of all the Afghan women they stoned, beheaded, bombed, etc….

    But of course, victimisation only goes one way doesn’t it.

    100s, 1000s more victims’ families expected to come forward.

    Surely there should be trials before apologies to the Afghanistan prime minister and compensation offers are made and medals “stripped” from soldiers.

    Why is this all the wrong way about?

    Sounds somewhat like VicPol elite, advertise for “victims” of the priesthood and baby will they will come. Throw in the odd million dollars in inducements, you’ll have a stampede.
    So why would anyone seriously think Afghanistan is different?

    How many innocent civilians do the Taliban kill per annum?

  6. Herodotus

    They are for the most part cold blooded killers child abusers and unreconstructed sexists, but let’s give them Afghanistan to terrorise from the palaces of government while we don the hair shirts and whip ourselves.

    Especially in a country where your religion allows telling lies to unbelievers?

    This just adds to the farce of this whole situation. What did Bereton expect when his investigation started trolling and paying for ‘witnesses’. How much of the ‘evidence’ it took him 4 years to collect will actually be admissible in a criminal court?

    The cry will soon be that “These courageous Afghan witnesses must be given refugee status in Australia, for their protection”.

    Since they are actively engaged in destroying a Western army, surely they would be heroes and heroines to the Taliban, and in absolutely no need of protection.

    Because the aim is to destroy our armed forces and our country. They are going about it quite methodically.

    I wouldn’t give any Afghan the perspiration off my brow.
    Least of all those who hide behind women and children, or in mufti, to do their dirty work.

    Indeed. Remember the Bringing Them Home report. Thousands of claims. Only one proven in court.

    This all happened years ago in Britain.Scumbag lawyer advertised in Afhganistan for anyone who had a relative “killed” etc. Naturally they had heaps of replies and service men who had served there were accused and faced years of proving their innocence. All lawyers costs paid for by the British taxpayer of course…. a nice little earner for them.

    Ha, classic. Actually, this week it was the Kuwaitis.

    What I like about the Lebs and co is they can’t wait to spend it on haircuts and high living.

    Wow how moronic is Scomo. When I was in Asia I saw another world, not the one I was raised in. People might be very friendly on the surface but held grudges for generations, denounce neighbours if they thought there was a gain, could be very cut throat and if someone was offering free money there would be some that lie through their teeth to get in. At first it shocked me, then it sunk in that due to the subsistence nature of the third world people will do whatever they need to survive. It still repulsed me but I understood where they were coming from much more and accepted that. Moral of the story, don’t offer free money in s%$#holes like Afghanistan as this is just the beginning. There will more claims, a lot more.

    As an after note, you are telling me that that with all the highly paid mandarins in Canberra especially in DFAT or ASIO/ASIS with experience in this field that not 1 piped and voiced concerns? I find that very hard to believe. Or is this a creation of the obese lightweight in Payne to look good?

    Indeed. Remember the Bringing Them Home report. Thousands of claims. Only one proven in court.

    The Aboriginal Legal Service insisted on the right to vet the list of those giving evidence to that circus. Anyone who had a different story to what the inquiry wanted to hear didn’t get to give evidence.

    From what I hear, DFAT personnel were too busy getting on the piss and bonking each other to care what was happening in the field.

    I’ll bet good money that will be the case.

    Well we have been lied to and bled dry by Afghanis for years .Just following on this insane culture of submission to Muslims that they take as their right.

  21. Entropy

    I think for DFAT it is a bit of learned behaviour and a bit of daddy worship for the British diplomatic service. All very Lawrence.
