Australian Prime Minister John Howard stated today during a radio interview that
following his and George W. Bush' recent election victories, the re-election of
Prime Minister Tony Blair would be seen as an endorsement of the military action
taken to oust Saddam Hussein' regime.
"Certainly it would," Mr Howard told ABC Radio National.
"I'm conflicted when it comes to the British election (but) I really wish Tony Blair well because he's been extremely courageous.
"I think of the three of us he had the most difficult internal task in relation to Iraq because his party was deeply divided and a large section of
his party was openly hostile to his decision."

This may be wishful thinking on the part of John Howard. In the case of the recent Australian election, Howard' Liberal Party won as a result of two
main reasons. One being a good economic track record and the fact that the opposition were 'light' on policies. And of course Howard and Bush will
back Blair, because a loss would be seen as a fracture of the coalition.
