Australia too. Bunch of SASR soldiers might have been committing war crimes, the whistleblower is the only one facing charges.
SASR 2ND battalion has been disbanded and the report from the inspector general of the defence forces - which even if only half true - is damming as fuck and 39 troopers have been referred to the Australian Federal Police for investigation. I mean it could all still end in a fuckin’ whitewash but no one has (yet) gotten off Scott Free.

Edit: misunderstood 2nd Battalion as two battalions.

Wasn’t it 2nd battalion, not two battalions?

I think they did the soldiers who did the right thing dirty. I don’t like punishing a whole bunch of people who weren’t involved
They aren’t going to toss innocent troopers out of the service. Apart from being a gross overreaction it would be an appalling waste of the money spent training them to their elite level. In all probability a new battalion comprising of those not involved (or uncharitably, not known to be involved) in this travesty will be stood up to replace it.

Plus, they probably don’t want to cut them lose because that then puts fifty odd men with skills, training, contacts and truckloads of spite onto the open market for any number of rich and nefarious actors to take advantage of.
