This makes it the second Australian killed in Afghanistan in about 2 weeks, and brings the total in the middle east (A-ghan and Iraq) to 5, and the second SAS member to be killed in the War on Terror.

My thoughts are with the mans family.

I'm sad for the man's family.

However...

I don't want to flame here but your thoughts should also be with the dozen of civilians who daily die there.

They didn't choose a dangerous job, but only a normal life...

Not wishing to flame anything either and what you say is perfectly true.

To have any member of one's family die at or near home is indeed very sad, and regrettable.

To have one's son/husband/father go to a foreign land on the other side of the World, and die there, is also indeed equally sad and regrettable.

Your point about the difference of choice is valid, as far as it goes. I guess the question is, how far? For many of us, and a least a proportion of the service personnel who go there, it could come down to belief in a cause though others, equally so, might see it differently.

No easy answers, but all these deaths are sad. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
