I don't think there is anything our soldiers could do to upset the Prime Minister. A video has surfaced showing Australian Army personnel binge drinking, and one soldier is dressed in KKK regalia. (made in 2004) The PM's official stance is that the soldiers were just letting of some steam. he also urged the public not to over-react. He said:
"I have some understanding of the disposition of people in these situations to let off a bit of steam. I just think people can over-react with these things. People get into a lather and sweat and so on ... let's be sensible about this."
