    Probably, and men like Cpl Roberts-Smith are prepared to make the supreme sacrifice so that these pissants are free to disrespect them. Sucks don't it.

    Fuck it, I'm gonna bite, this bloke has received the highest award for bravery in the Australian context, he is one of only three recipients of the modern award and has been assessed as showing "conspicuous bravery in the face of the enemy" I don't know if you have any links with the military mate, but the freedom you enjoy (so obviously by posting crap like that) has been hard won by the brave blokes like Cpl Roberts-Smith who consider such freedom to be worth them risking their lives to defend.

    Dismiss his status all you like, it only makes you look like more of a dick!

    How about the obvious, self sacrifice and courage are the most respectable human traits there are.

    I have, (the most expensive war movie ever made, actually cost more that the invasion of Greece and Crete) but didn't understand the reference. Perhaps I was being too basic?

    Sorry got the context wrong.

    It's the one downfall of forums, should posts be seen as a conversation or as independent replies to original topics.

    Fighting in a war that's has resulted in tens of thousands of civilian deaths. Don't spin crap about soldiers there sacrificing themselves for my safety, if anything our participation in that war has just made us a bigger terrorist target.

    I think using your own body as a shield so that an Afghan civilian attached to your unit can be safely treated for his wounds does count as self sacrifice. It's as if you don't actually know anything about what he was awarded the Victoria Cross for.

    Sounds like the Midland Hills RUFC might like to know the kind of member they have?

    To question our countries participation in a war is not something that should be laid at the feet of the men and women in uniform. The decision to send our Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen in to combat is a political decision and should you wish to criticize that decision, I would suggest you take it up with your local member of the Federal Parliament.

    To openly criticize a member in uniform because you don't agree with a political decision is abhorrent.

    agree,blame the Government;the troops just carry out the Governments orders

    Having said that, I believe it is about time the Australian government stopped being the US governments lap dog & develop our own foreign policy.Afghanistan,Iraq,Vietnam---great decisions by our government,weren't they?



    by the way,gutsy effort by the wallabies tonight
