Another three Australian soldiers dead in an Afghanistan war that the majority of Australians don’t think is worth fighting. And still no dissenting voices within the two major political parties. You particularly have to wonder where all the peaceniks within the Labor Party have gone to.
No one it seems wants to appear disloyal to the troops putting their lives at risk so all the political talk outside of the Greens is about saying the course for the great cause of combating terrorism. Politicians like Bob Brown who are prepared to say we should not be there at all are in short supply and will be until one of our leaders has the courage to tell our military that we were wrong to send them in the first place and more wrong to keep them there so long.
