Aussie Red's Un-Invited Opinion

So Australian PM John Howard, a hard core right winger and one of only a handful of "friends" George W. Bush has on the world stage, has taken the unusual step of giving his public opinion on American domestic politics. Perhaps fearing a global collapse of the right wing movement, Howard has stated :

"If I were running al Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008 and be praying as many times as possible for a victory, not only for Obama but also for the Democrats."

Sounds like the nonsense spewed by Dick Cheney or Anne Coulter doesn't it? Who the Hell asked him anyway? I guess it just goes to prove that ignorance knows no borders and the practice of smearing good people and distorting the truth is a trait all Reds share, no matter their nationality.

A spokeman for Barack Obama offered this reply:

"If Prime Minister Howard truly believes what he says, perhaps his country should find its way to contribute more than just 1,400 troops so some American troops can come home," he said. "It's easy to talk tough when it's not your country or your troops making the sacrifices."
