Australian Military Conflicts

Australian troops have represented our country in many conflicts during our short history. Unfortunately as I write we still have troops fighting wars in Afganistan and Iraq. Like the Vietnam war the general Australian population do not believe the war in Iraq is justified but as in the past our troops have performed the job handed to them despite public critisism for doing their job. Today (26/4/2008) the former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad called for Western leaders including former Australian prime minister John Howard and US President George Bush to be charged with war crimes over the Iraq war. I say its about time.
