War Update

More fear and loathing on the campaign trail. Howard and Nelson are trying to make Iraq a security issue for the election.

Two Iraq War updates make it just that more difficult:

  • GetUp! are raising funds to place an ad on TV by Louise Barry, Australian survivor of the 2005 London terrorist attacks, urging John Howard to rethink our involvement in the Iraq war. You can view the video for free online and then contribute at:

  • Another senior US Republican Senator Pete Domenici has called for the withdrawal of troops by next March, making the third to do so recently. Bush and Howard are becoming increasingly isolated in their stick it out at any costs approach.
The latest terrorist attacks and their Oz connections remind us that the disaster in the Middle East is not simply about evil people who hate us. The last six and a half years under Bush have taken us further away from resolving the Palestine-Israel conflict. Nor have the Howard policies made Australia a safer and more secure place.

Bad joke:
How any Liberal Defence Ministers does it take to change a light globe?
Answer: Just one, to spin the bayonet.

Anonymous said... is a similar GetUp! initiative with a collection of videos, of which one will be produced as a television ad.
