I didn't realise unethical and unscrupulous sham writers exist in oceania. If you dare tell China to behave, then you should learn to behave first. And in your own home.
To the Editor,
It was with the greatest
disappointment and dismay that I read Ian McPhedran’s article in your
newspaper this morning, releasing the name of our most recent combat
fatality before official release by Defence and by his family. The Army
and the Defence Force have well established protocols for the release of
names and personal details in these circumstances; protocols with which
your journalists are very familiar but have clearly chosen to ignore.
The family in this instance, whose
lives are currently consumed with their own grief, had asked Army to
wait to release his details so that they could deal with this terrible
loss in their way. You have robbed them of this right. Such actions are
unconscionable and un-Australian. Our only concern is a desire to look
after those of the grieving family of a courageous soldier. Their trust
has been betrayed by the selfish act of a journalist intent on being
Chief of Army
