Warriors vs Australia’s CoverUps, War Crimes and Thug Culture

Warriors vs Australia’s CoverUps, War Crimes and Thug Culture

War crimes committed by the losers are punished and pilloried in news articles, books documentaries, movies while military coverups of atrocities by the victors are standard issue for evading justice.
