Public grief over deaths of 5 Australian soldiers is an occasion for propaganda
5 Australian soldiers killed and the media/government oligarchy are engaging in a paroxysm of fake grief - really just a form of propaganda.
Obama kills dozens of innocents in drone attacks every week and the media doesn't give a rat's backside.
They talk about "rogue attacks" as if this is some aberration which has no rational explanation, when in fact this is only to be expected since we invaded and occupied a sovereign nation. The current Afhhanistan government is a puppet regime, propped up by a combination of military force and copious amounts of money. It will fall in the end, like all imperial puppet governments have in the past.
A time may come when we are invaded and occupied - if the US empire retreats from our shores and we are left all alone as a western nation at the bottom end of Asia.
I wonder how much mercy we will get from our conquerors then?
