When the going gets tough you find out who your friends are. A lot of people might not agree with why we went to Iraq in the first place. But that
is a mute point now. We are there, American soldiers are dying. No matter what Saddams intent or capablities where, we are now fighting
insurgents(terrorists) in Afganistan and Iraq. Better there than here! We have dealt the terrorist a huge blow by taking the fight to them. Something
they believe we did not have the stomach for. There has not been a terrorist attack in the USA since 9/11. France, Germany, Russia and Canada are not
our allies. The sooner we realize this the better off we will be. It takes a small gutsy nation like the Aussies to step up to the plate. The amount
of troops they are sending is not enough to affect the final outcome, but it is a mighty large symbol of support. Thanks Mates!
