elite sol­diers are said to have killed at least 39 pris­on­ers or civil­ians, accord­ing to the inves­ti­ga­tion report. They are accused of hav­ing an “ego­cen­tric war­rior cul­ture”. The chief is now address­ing the Afghan peo­ple. Accord­ing to an inves­ti­ga­tion report, Aus­tralian sol­diers have com­mit­ted while serv­ing in Afghanistan. 25 mem­bers of a spe­cial unit had “ille­gal­ly” killed at least 39 pris­on­ers or civil­ians, said the chief of the Aus­tralian Defense Forces, Angus Camp­bell, now in Can­ber­ra, when he pub­lished a report on the behav­ior of Aus­tralian sol­diers in the in Afghanistan. Such a “shame­ful bal­ance sheet” of an “ego­cen­tric war­rior cul­ture” was revealed. The results indi­cat­ed “most seri­ous vio­la­tions” of mil­i­tary behav­ior and pro­fes­sion­al val­ues. For the report, the Inspec­tor Gen­er­al of the Aus­tralian Mil­i­tary fol­lowed up on indi­ca­tions of unlaw­ful killings and vio­la­tions of inter­na­tion­al mar­tial law between 2005 and 2016. More than 330 wit­ness­es were heard and inves­ti­ga­tions opened in at least 55 cas­es.

The report out­lines a cul­ture of “tox­ic com­pet­i­tive think­ing” with­in the task force that has result­ed in some sol­diers short­en­ing pro­ce­dures, ignor­ing and bow­ing to rules, Camp­bell said. None of these “unlaw­ful killings” hap­pened “in the heat of the moment”. “Every per­son spo­ken to dur­ing this inves­ti­ga­tion under­stood the inter­na­tion­al law of war and the rules of engage­ment under which they were deployed.”

Sus­pi­cious sol­diers are to be pros­e­cut­ed

“On behalf of the Aus­tralian Armed Forces, I sin­cere­ly and unre­served­ly apol­o­gize to the Afghan peo­ple for any wrong­do­ing,” said Camp­bell. He spoke out in favor of pros­e­cut­ing the sus­pect­ed sol­diers for war crimes. Prime Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son announced last week that a spe­cial inves­ti­ga­tor would inves­ti­gate alleged war crimes com­mit­ted by Aus­tralian sol­diers in Afghanistan and bring those respon­si­ble to jus­tice. He had pre­pared his com­pa­tri­ots for rev­e­la­tions that were dif­fi­cult to cope with — not just for active sol­diers and vet­er­ans. After the ter­ror­ist attacks of Sep­tem­ber 11, 2001, Aus­tralia sent more than 26,000 sol­diers to Afghanistan to fight along­side the US Army against Islamist mili­tias such as the Tal­iban and Al-Qae­da. In 2013, Aus­tralia with­drew its troops from the coun­try. Since then, seri­ous accu­sa­tions have been raised against elite Aus­tralian sol­diers. Among oth­er things, Aus­tralian troops were accused of killing a six-year-old in a house search.
