What are we doing in Iraq?

After last week bomb attack on the Australian Embassy in Iraq, the government said the Embassy would be moved inside the green zone soon. Then yesterday six of our boys get injuried in a bomb attack a long way away from the Embassy. The troops are offically there to guard the embassy and escort diplomates around the place. So it reasonable to ask the question what are they actually doing?
If they are joining in general patrols then we have to ask, is that the reason the embassy has not been moved into the green zone earlier. Persumable in the green zone the embassy would require fewer troops to protect it. Or are the Americans keeping us out, for the same reason? Just something to chew over.

    We wouldn't want Australian troops actually doing something to help real Iraqi people, rather than looking after jet setting snobbish bureacrats, would we?

    I just want to make sure they are equiped for task they allocated. Protecting an embassy would require different equipment than patrolling a wider area. I just hope we are being told the truth.
