Mr Turnbull said the situation in Syria remained complex, and any review of the mission would look into whether there should have been better coordination.

I know right. It seems that everyone is getting in on the fight in Syria. This is where making pacts with other countries come back to haunt you. I am sure they have no direct business in Syria but are protecting and helping an ally.

"As soon as the coalition were advised that there were Syrian government personnel that had been affected by the strike, the operation was discontinued," Mr Turnbull told reporters in New York, echoing the earlier Defence statement."We regret the loss of life and injury to any Syrian personnel affected."

War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing. It's a shame that Australia was involved in this battle due to political agenda. There is very rarely a threat to the country, so I suppose they have to do something with their armed forces.

There are some people with some very deep pockets that would disagree with you. War is good for economy they would say. War is good for the military contractor businesses.,

The people you are speaking of Vovchenko are the scum of the earth who keep all of us in danger so they can make fast money. Makes me sick to my stomach.

Coordination between the US, which backs some Syrian rebels, and the Russian military, which backs the Syrian government, is a controversial issue. Russia has long insisted on it and, if the ceasefire brokered by the two nations holds, the two nations are supposed to start coordinating attacks on Islamic State. Russia says the incident is evidence the US has stubbornly refused to coordinate so far.

They will have some explaining to do in the up coming weeks. The US has put them in a bad position on this one. There was no intel that would suggest the target they were attacking was an ISIS stronghold. Let the Russians tell it, they knew it was the Syrian Army they were attacking.
