SAS trooper: soldiers shouldn’t be held to ‘Western moral standards’ | Daily Mail

A former SAS trooper says Australian soldiers can’t be held to ‘Western moral standards’ when fighting in Afghanistan.

The anonymous veteran hit out at recent reports of a damning Defence Force inquiry accusing the special forces regiment of war crimes.

Soldiers engaged in ‘unsanctioned and illegal application of violence on operations’, which showed a ‘disregard for human life and dignity’, the 2016 report alleged.

Claims included the execution of numerous Afghani civilians, one who was kicked off a cliff and another whose prosthetic leg was kept as a souvenir.
