In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Shades of grey.......

Shades of grey in an impossible war

October 03, 2010 - IT TOOK 17 months for this week's decision to be reached to bring charges including manslaughter against three Australian commandos, following the deaths of six civilians in Afghanistan in February 2009.

In telling contrast the moment that caused the deaths is measured in seconds.

Since the matter was referred to the Army's Director of Prosecutions, Brigadier Lyn McDade last November, rapid-fire debate has ricocheted between barracks back home and forward operating bases on the other side of the world.

The consensus is the development makes a war some say is impossible, that much harder.

A commando who took part in the operation recently described to me a typical day at the office.


Six locals were killed, among them the man shooting back, who it is understood was no Taliban leader but a farmer protecting his family. {read rest}
