MHL said:Whether or not you agree with the war
It's not a war, though, it's a peacekeeping operation - at least in the official view of things. The rules are entirely different as is the conduct expected of soldiers. It's probably not a position they should be in, or a job they should have to do given that they're trained to fight an enemy rather than exercise restraint in the face of provocation, but unfortunately their government has put them in a position where if they break the rules, then they have to be punished for it in the eyes of the international community.
That's how it works, whether you like it or not. Don't blame the newspapers, blame the government for going in in the first place.
