This is a very tragic loss, my heart goes out to the families. The problem the kiwi army has, is that our soldiers are so used to peace keeping duties. Our government has only let our SAS soldiers fight in a combat role. To save more kiwi soldiers lives send the SAS back in, as they have the actual combat experiance. The government has a lot to be blamed for this latest loss of kiwi lives. They new that our SAS looked after and watch the kiwi peace keepers backs in Afgan.

Tragic but what do we expect? This is a war and people die. The fault lies with our own PM for sending troops! Why are we there?? For what reason?? It costs NZ tax payer huge money and for what?? Just to risk the lives of our poor soldiers so John Key can get buddy buddy with US?? Shame on you John! Wars just create more hatred and bitterness, people remember their loved ones that have died on both sides, but particularly when you are the invader and aggressor! JK has dragged NZ right into the middle of this war - WHY??? We all know that US use war as a business and want to control the world which I think NZ should take no part in? The way US tortured its war prisoners was dreadful and barbaric so get ready for repercussion! The way US send drones to bomb civilian areas where "so called" terrorist are hiding killing and maiming women and children is criminal and barbaric so get ready for repercussion! And since NZ troops are supporting this it means NZ supports and agrees with this barbaric action!!
