A report on alleged war crimes in Afghanistan by Australia was released. China trolled Australia on Twitter about it.
Last month, Australia released the Brereton report, the result of a four-year inquiry into war crimes committed by the nation’s elite Special Air Services while fighting in Afghanistan.
Among the report’s allegations was that soldiers were involved in the murder of 39 Afghan civilians, none of which occurred during battle. Allegations of systematic Killings by Australia’s Soldiers. Those orders to Kill allegedly came from top Australian Officials, the report claims. Senior commanders allegedly prompted junior officers to kill prisoners in a process called “blooding,” and weapons were planted on the dead captives to justify their executions.
One of the most grisly killings involved an allegation that “describes two ’14-year-old boys suspected of being Taliban sympathizers had their throats slit.
Chinese artists depicted the killings of those two children. In return, Australia demanded an apology for the artist’s depiction of the incident.
Western media went on a blitz screen in order to carry the message for Australia and make the artwork and not the crimes of war as the center of conversation.
