  1. Another 2 gone in a fight for terrorism! Or that is what we are lead to believe, at the end of the day though, 20 Aussies have been murdered by these crazy Taliban.Is it worth the worlds resources for the next 10, 20 50 years to fight these people?

    • Is it right that innocent people get bombed and survivors suffer the rest of there life i a nightmare? No.Is it right for us to be there and fight for the good? Yes. If we don’t take the fight there it will be to late when it comes to our very own doorstep. They kill their own children so there is nothing stopping them from killing ours. It’s bad enough boat people are arriving and setting up here already, some will be ok but the majority will be our worst nightmare. Converting is their way of recruiting.

      The Battle against Islam has started long ago and they will stop at nothing because they are fanatics. Governments will do nothing because some one somewhere is making a pretty penny. Their rules are bollocks and UN treaties mean nothing, this is war and if we do nothing be ready to be placed on the list of soon to be conquered. All the do gooders are blind and ignorant and think they are some one special, nothing will come of them except enemies. We deserve to live freely yet these people find loop holes so they can promote Islam and create Australian/American homegrown terrorists.

      There comes a time when war is the only option. End of the day all we can do is keep our brothers safe to continue the fight and our families safe to live in this great country of ours. For if we don’t stand up and fight no one will.

  2. Hi Trooper, your comment is probably the most logic and well written since I started this blog mate. I never seek to divulge anyone’s true identity but I gather by your user name maybe you have a insiders view of the situation.

    If you would like to add more or even write an article it would be my pleasure to accommodate that so we can get the view from the inside…
    Thanks for stopping by

  3. “The Battle against Islam”?! WTF? Are you an idiot or do you actually want to try and murder 2bn people? Or are you so stupid, “Trooper” (who I hope has just played Mario Kart a bit too often rather than actually representing Australia, Robbo), as you forget how little Australia has even existed comparatively?

  4. Radical Islam has declared war on the West. Like it or not! We can choose to keep our military at home and wait for them to bring the fight to us (like they already have in Bali, London, Spain, Kelya, 9/11, etc., etc.), or we can go on the front foot and take the fight to them on their home turf.

    We didn’t choose this war, but we have to face up to the fact that we are at war and deal with it! Losing some of our wonderful heros is tragic. Their bravery on the front line is required to keep the war “over there” instead of letting the radicals bring it “over here”.

  5. James you are obviously one of these people who have their heads shoved up their own rrrrs! I for one haven’t noticed the buddists of the world putting fight on other countries. Nor any other religion for that matter! Islam is supposed to be a ‘gentle’ religion but many of it’s followers are hell bent on HATE. The old world teachings haven’t been bought up to the modern times due to the fact that these mob hadn’t allowed the simple thing of EDUCATION to be given to their people. James if these crew looked after their own then our boys wouldn’t need to be there stopping the looneys with no education and a mission of hate towards modernisation. Like it or not our worlds are getting smaller and population greater.. Most wish for peace, and are willing to fight the COWARDS who are the Taliban and the like that are flying the Muslim flag.

    • Unbelievable how stupid and ignorant all u people are. Saying that Muslims are extremists. Christianity is supposed to be a gentle religion but that hasn’t stopped millions of people being killed in the name of Jesus over the past 2 millenia. George Bush and all the extremist Christians believe this war has been ordained by their God. There are just as many, if not more, extremist Christians than Muslims. If we pulled out of this illegal war in Afghanistan they will never come here and attack us. We are the foreign imperialist oppressor, not them. So they bomb western targets once every few years. So what? Does that mean we should bomb the shit out of them everyday for the next 50 years. Who knows how many of these attacks by extremist Muslims aren’t done by the CIA to convince idiots like u that this war is justified. The majority of Australians are against this war. If there weren’t blood thirsty, bogan morons joining the army this war wouldn’t happen. If u join the army to go overseas to try and kill people and get killed in the process I would call that karma. War is murder. All soldiers fighting in foreign lands in illegal wars deserve to die. Australian troops out!

  7. Every Aussie life lost in afghanistan is belittled by the fact that we have failed to pull the Americans Back from their 10 year lawless revengefest and have infact started to embrace the same attitude. The Commonwealth has only one law under which a life may be taken. The Perp must have resisted Arrest under charge of Treason.
    That requires (1) A Warrant charging the perp with Treason, and (2) an obligation on our part to cropduct Afghanistan every day in some Soviet Era Sleepgas while we round every last one of the bastards up and then ship them off to Trial and deportation to Antartica for Life.
    For any Commonwealth Citizen to fail to conform to this process of Law, you will have committed an act in violation of Section 1: Treason.
    The Whole thing has degenerated into one group of rabid dogs fighting it out with another. That sort of contempt for the Law from the trash at the top should piss us all off.

  9. With a partner in Afghanistan, (Tarin Kowt) as we speak, I appreciate this Roll of Honor. They are amazing people who will always be in my thoughts, as well as their families.
    I just feel like I should mention, next season it’s rumoured it will be the worse season yet. . As the Taliban are becoming more desperate and also into a lot more money (through poppy season). Luckily, my partner will be home soon, but a lot of military personel aren’t so fortunate. I just want to say a bit thank you to all the men who have served and are serving as we speak. 6RAR had a really terrible run, and my heart goes out to them and their families, as well as whoever replaces them. Stay safe and take care. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I take my hat off to them all, as they are serving in a dangerous place. Cannot tell from one minute to the next, what fate has in hand. They face a very smart & determined enemy, similarities ( Like in Vietnam ) fighting a war in different kind of way, in the enemies own backyard. In time The Aussies & Americans will adapt & overcome. Unfortunately to overcome & adapt, lives will be lost on both sides. In this day & age I cannot think why we humans haven’t learnt from the past, In wars that have been fought!! The world is a big place & I cannot think why we all cannot live in peace??

    • It started with the Soviet war from 1979- 1989. Afghanistan were invaded and their lives turned upside down. 1.3million Afghan people died and many more fled to Afghanistan. The place was in ruins. When this ended all the people had left were the weapons and ammo. The children grew up hating the western world. With the history involved in this, no wonder the country turned to crap. By the way, I am NOT defending their actions. I’m just telling you how this started in the first place.

    I’m not here to have ago you. I read that your partner is over in Afghanistan. May he & all the others there be safe. I don’t claim to know it all. I read allot, about this, oh & I watch Michael Moore.
    Yeah some of this may go back to the Soviet Invasion but I do think America has allot more to answer for!! It goes allot Deeper. ( You only have to look at What they done in Vietnam ) Its goes allot deeper than we a lead to believe. George W Bush, & his Father & the Bin la-dens. Its all about Money & oil, double dealings, Oh & I forgot, the CIA, & Saddam Hussein, & payback!!. Yeah the Aussies now in Afghanistan, as well as the Yanks are being killed by American Weaponry supplied to the Taliban by the AMERICANS To defeat the Russians back in the 80s. ( Now Russia & America are Buddy Buddy for now ) George W BUSH thought Getting OSAMA would be easy, it hasn’t turned out that way. ( We will Smoke him em out he says ) OSAMA may or may not be dead, but he has them Rattled. Lessons haven’t been learnt from Vietnam, sending in the jets & bombing the crap outta the place, aint going to win it for them, in the end,the poor old solider & his dog have to go on in & finish the business off. In war there is money too be made, & there a few American politicians with huge Investments & interests In businesses that Benefit from this war!! What I have written may be all Bullshit?? I just read what I read. Watch what I watch. Take it all in. A sleeping Giant will awaken soon, That being China, in time A line will be drawn in the Sand.. Sides will be taken. Time will tell..

  12. Well SADLY to say we have lost another BRAVE DIGGER to the fighting in Afghanistan.
    The dead soldier, Sergeant Brett Wood, 32, is the 24th Australian to die in action in Afghanistan since 2001. 174 now have been wounded in action.
    Highly decorated & will be greatly missed by family & his mates!!
    The question being asked again, should we pull our troops out??
    Then I read on the other side of the page that Politicians think they are ( OVERWORKED )
    By saying that I mean the POLITICIANS that is.
    Then below THAT ARTICLE, THEY WANT TO CUT DANGER MONEY BEING EARNED BY THE DIGGERS, WHILST OVERSEAS??
    Then I read KEVIN RUDD has racked up ABOUT 250000 kms in Travel.
    Gees at what cost??
    Where in the hell is this country headed??
    On the question of pulling our troops out, that’s a hard one to comprehend.
    But to think back to Gallipoli, 25th April 1915, what was it a 8 month Campaign, 8700 killed, 28000 wounded, on Aussie side, New Zealand 7500 wounded, 2700, killed.
    Turkish 215000 wounded, 8700 killed. Legends made & lost.
    ( My figures may be wrong ) Was that worth it???
    We did in the end pull out, ingeniously sneakily & very smartly. I know its a different era & century, but this Afghanistan War is going nowhere!!
    Its just tit for tat. To may Innocent lives on both sides being lost, & for what??
    AMERICA????? Seems to me its going to go on for much longer yet, even with Bin Laden dead. As far as Im concerned you cant trust the Afghanis!!
    Yeah there are good ones, but how can we tell?? Just Like Americans!!

    @RobHullsMP I’m curious. Do you know who introduced that very dangerous law in Victoria that protects sex offenders and paedophiles and not the victims?

    I doubt if I will get a reply. Would you happen to know which political party did it.

    Reference horse racing scams. I written a bit about them myself on my website. Have a read of the notes under http://racestrat.com.au/index.php/news.

  21. I trained Greg Sher on a army driving course not long be for he went to afghanistan, ive never been a great soldier and never popular among my fellow soldiers however, he was one of them men that stood up for me when others were putting me down and i will always be grateful for what he did for me he was a great man and will always have my respect wish i could have known him better as if thats just a small exprience of what character was like then people who knew him better must have even better things to say about him.
    even though he was born in south africa he was a true aussie.

  23. To any of the people above that are knocking our brave Aussie hero soldiers who have sacrificed and gave their lives for the freedom of our peace from terrorism and the radial Islamic ramblings by the middle eastern fanatics in Australia, and in war torn Afghanistan against all the odds, of the odd angry shot by a unstoppable Taliban army.
    Please stop and look at what these few Killed in Action brave warrior solders had to go through long before they were posted and sent off to a far away war zone of danger to fight the war on terrorism in Afghanistan.
    The Special Air Service of SAS, recruit Solder has to mandatory go through the enduring living hell, of the SAS or the Special Forces Commando test to get the right to wear the Who Dares Wins light brown fawn or the Double Diamond Green Beret!………The all ready experienced ADF Soldier from other Aussie regiments are required to have the most superior fitness test, mental ability and psychological conditioning, the toughest of survival training a human being can endure, leadership tests, and carrying military equipment of unbearable weight in the toughest of terrain possible on earth!. And this is only the basic training, the solder has to pass before they are accepted into the SAS for their intensive anti terrorism and survival training to prepare them for combat in a foreign combat zone in any part of the world of hostility for which they must be prepared to give their life for!
    Out of a more than 100 experienced Soldiers that volunteer to be a Special Forces Green Beret or a Special Air Service Soldier it is not uncommon that less than 10 recruits will make it to the Commando Training. These Men and Women of the SAS are the elite among all soldiers, because of the superior combat and survival training they receive from already serving SAS, combat instructors. This is the reason they are despatched to the most dangerous of Military war torn and terrorist prone combat or war zones, and tragically in many cases a has been in Afghanistan – Been Killed In Action, and even awarded Australias Highest Bravery and Valor Award : The Victoria Cross and the Star of Courage. ! ,…….. Please respect all these brave men and Australian Heroes of our Australia Defence Forces on the above page that have gave their lives for our peace and freedom!
    Thanks also and a salute to Robbo for putting this emotionally moving Roll of Honour of these modern day ANZAC,s…on the Aussie Criminals site. To show that not every thing today is bad, and these chosen few heroes will keep reminding us all that for every bad criminal there are still the best of the best of men who will sacrifice their life in the line of duty for the safety of us all. Dedicated to Corporal Cameron Baird of the 2nd Commando Regiment and his family on the presentation of the 100th Victoria Cross to him an Australian Soldier, and to one of the bravest of the brave soldiers who served and was because of his bravery Killed in Action in Afghanistan. Lest we Forget……………………………………………………

  24. Thanks Steve for backing me up here.

    These blokes were backing us up.They fight on behalf of you and I. It was a long time ago but they used to call men/boys up, by age name whatever, it was called Conscription.

    Remember that folks, and they were killed by criminals overseas.Early on in building my site it coincided with the so called war against terrorism, that ending up being a decade in Afghanistan.

    As I was documenting crimes against Aussies, I figured well these blokes are getting knocked over by urban criminals and they deserve to be here and have their own page

    I may have stuffed up a few things along the way on this site, but the creation of this page years ago is my proudest.

  25. Would it be possible Robbo, to put on this Roll of Honour page to our Australian Soldiers that have served in Afghanistan. The Sixty Minutes interview on Corporal Mark Donaldson of the Special Air Service -SAS, who was the first combat soldier who fought in Afghanistan to be awarded the Victoria Cross for Valour……His Combat Dog was killed in Action…. Mark Donaldson was also a victim of crime, and a wild boy before he joined the Australian Defence Force. Cheers, this guy is an Australian Role model………Also there is a Sixty Minutes interview with Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith , awarded the Victoria Cross.with the SAS in Afghanistan….And who is now helping Returned Soldiers from Afghanistan cope with Post Trumatic Stress Disorder!..PTSD. Cheers.
