Aussies in Afghanistan

So there’s our soldiers, fighting in Afghanistan, seeing their mates being killed by whoever. Then the Department of Defence launches an inquiry into alleged inappropriate treatment of prisoners, but not because they were tortured but because there was, to quote the Chief of the Defence Force: “possible use of unauthorised questioning techniques … limited to inappropriate language”. Say what? Aussie solders swore at people who were trying to kill them. Who would have thought? The charge was brought by an ADF member: probably some base-camp clerk who’s never been “beyond the wire”. I wonder how the Taliban or Al-Qaeda would treat an Australian if captured?
