I'm sure most of you would know about the Australian guy who was killed recently in Iraq.
Now, the media is making it seem like a terrible tradgedy, and the top politions are going on about how aweful it is.
I on the other hand, have very little sympathy, and my anger about the issue.
Yes it is absolutely terrible that the guy died. It's sad for any member of a family to die.
He joined the army. This means he knew full well that if there was a war he would get called into it. That means it was his JOB! When he was killed during the war, he died at work. Lots of people have died due to work related accidents, yet when they do get killed, they don't get called a hero, and the PM doesn't turn up to their funeral. Why is their death so much less important than anybody elses?
Also, when these politions rave on about how much of a disaster it is, I can't help but think "What on earth did you expect?". I mean, they sent their troops into a WAR. In a war people get killed. Did they think they could just walk into another country, start blowing everything up, terrifying civilians, and killing people and have everybody just sit back and let them? I don't fucking think so!
What do other people think? Is it just me?
