death masks: too arrogant...

death masks

Australia's Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Angus Campbell, has issued a directive that prohibits the wearing of 'death' symbols. 

Lieutenant General Campbell said the practice was arrogant, ill-considered and that it eroded the ethos of the Army.

The directive was circulated as an internal minute on April 17, and later posted to unofficial social media pages for commentary.

Several symbols were specifically prohibited because of their violent, murderous and vigilante symbolism including the Grim Reaper, the Skull and Crossbones, Spartans, and the Phantom or Punisher.

The commission was given evidence from a 2015 document for CBA’s Count Financial business that showed multiple examples of financial advisers charging ongoing service fees to clients who had died.

killing the wrong man...

The Australians swept into the village of Nawjoy looking for one man.

His name was Mawlawi Sher Mohammad.

"They had blackened faces, grey guns and red beards," remembers his neighbour Abdul Azim.

By the time the SAS left Nawjoy that day — January 7, 2013 — Mawlawi Sher Mohammad lay dead in his own stable, where villagers say he was taken and shot.

But the Australians had killed the wrong man.

The man left in the hay in the stable was not the SAS's Taliban objective.

ABC Investigations understands the dead man was a civilian who shared the same name as the Taliban target and he was killed in cold blood.

The village Imam, Mawlawi Sher Mohammad, had that morning been teaching the children of Nawjoy.

Often, in such cases, the "intelligence" is wrong and the brass think its correct and give the order to "eliminate". As usual, the soldiers will get the stick for killing the wrong man, while the brass enjoy their gin and tonic on the verandah... The brass should face the music — up to the political class, including the Prime Minister, that who ordered troops where they should not be.
