The real meaning of Gallipoli and the Anzacs has never been better put than it was by the bloke who beat us; Turkish PM, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

Someone may have edited this video to show Australia in a better light, by making it seem as if we have always shown our support towards our involvement in world wars, when in actual fact, many people opposed our association with WW1, WW2, the Vietnam War and conscription.
KLI0001's comment, May 22, 2013 8:53 PM
I think that the person who put this video online was in favour for Anzac day and really likes it. he wanted to post a video to promote it but could only find this video showing bothsides. He only wanted the first part so that's why he edited the last part of the video.
yan0035's comment, May 22, 2013 9:43 PM
The video is split between two parts, the positive involvement of Australia in World War 1 and the negative effects. The person who cut the video, wanted only to show the section which agreed with his argument, and did not show the other side of the story.

*that moment when you realise that the most highly regarded anzac hero wasn't an aussie*

 

Should we be 'celebrating' the ANZAC soliders or more or less commemorating them?

This song shows a good insight of the mental affects that occur to the soldgiers at war.
