(REUTERS) "I am not running away from the fact that I had previously said I did not contemplate a major (troop) increase. I admit quite openly that we have changed our position," Howard told Australian Broadcasting Corp radio. "I acknowledge that I'll be criticized for that but in the end I've got to take decisions that I believe are right in the interests of this country and broader Western interests in the Middle East."
Well Howard, you are taking the long hard road called leadership. Them may hate you today...and probably tomorrow but their respect will come around after they realize that the Aussie's have contributed to the greater cause of Iraqi freedom (and perhaps kill a couple of terrorists as well).
The deployment was necessary after the Dutch decided to leave the southern region of Iraq. Japan and Britain both called on Howard to send more troops, and his willingness to help out is not being met with friendly results in the Outback.
A telephone survey of 17,000 people by Channel Ten television found 71 percent opposed the deployment compared with 29 percent in favor.
Ironically though the press in Australia is defending the move. Makes me almost want to move over there with the kangaroos and the friendly MSM. What could be better? Selah!
