War of words between PM Howard & Senator Obama has sparked yesterday When PM Howard openly declared his hope that Obama won't win and won't become
the U.S. president. He said that if Obama wins, it would be disastrous for the war on terrorism. Obama spokesman says "It's easy to talk tough when
it's not your country or your troops making the sacrifices,''
Mr Obama, speaking at a packed press conference in Iowa today, said if MrHoward was concerned about the situation in Iraq he should send 20,000
Australian troops to the strife-torn nation.
would also note that we have close to 140,000 troops on the ground now and my understanding is that Mr Howard has deployed 1400,''Mr Obama, who next
year could become the first African American to be elected US president, said.
"So, if he's ginned up to fight the good fight in Iraq, I would suggest he calls up another 20,000 Australians and sends them up to Iraq.
"Otherwise, it's just a bunch of empty rhetoric.''
