Spirit Of 76

Obama is on marked time. The second he poses even the remotest thread to Hilary's campaign, he'll wake to find a large knife buried deep into his back.


I think the comment was in reference to the fact that a country with an investment of 2000 odd troops should not be telling a country with an investment of 100,000+ troops that it should stay and fight. Perhaps the subtlety is a little lost on you. or perhaps you could actually include his entire line

I would also note that we have close to 140,000 troops in Iraq and my understanding is Mr Howard has deployed 1400.
So if he is to fight the good fight in Iraq I would suggest that he calls up another 20,000 Australians and sends them to Iraq - otherwise it's just a bunch of empty rhetoric."

Based on relative populations Australia by Obama's challenge - should send in another 7,000 odd. But who says anyway that allies - showing support - have to have the same ratio as the people that started the war? Would Obama support the view that a rich man - paying more tax than a poor man - ought to have more say (more votes) on how that money is spent? I very much doubt it. Obama shows his nature by resort to this form of fallacious argument.


Well, for those that feel strongly about it here from the safety of NZ, its easy: Ship leaves from over there, pick up your rifle on the way.

John Boy

Its not so hard. He simply said to Howard that he could replace the US guys with Diggers if John wanted to persist with the war. I think, subject always to public opinion affecting his thoughts like it does, he wants the US troops out.

The Shrub

Simply the sort of straight talking put down that left Howard looking like a bag full of empty bluster -neatly summed up by Michelle Grattan this morning
