Think about life without the US: Armitage
"The US Deputy Secretary of State, Richard Armitage, has suggested that Australians imagine living without the American alliance, further increasing Bush Administration pressure on Mark Latham."
www.smh.com.au...

As if the U.S. will cancel the Aus/U.S. alliance if Labour are elected later this year.

Well, looks like the threats worked...
Latham in retreat on Iraq troops

"MARK LATHAM is retreating on his promise to pull Australian troops out of Iraq by Christmas, suggesting almost a third of the contingent could stay on under a Labor government to guard diplomats in Baghdad."
www.news.com.au...

And a 1 2 3 4...

Latham is threatening himself by enlisting the help of idiots like Peter Garret.

Majority withdrawal is a start.

BTW how does Peter Garrett's IQ stand up against Kano's?

armatige, i will vote for whomever i see fit to vote for, i wont hesitate to elect Latham.

mainly because i dont like howard because howard is soo far up bush's arse that he cant see throught the brown stains on his glasses.

anyway, what buisiness is it of his anyway, you dont see and aussie pollies saying "dont elect john kerry" or "dont reelect george bush" do ya.

i would rather the billions of $$$ spent on war goes to hospitals, training for the unemployed, conservation and reducing greenhouse gasses.

oh And a 1 2 3 4...

After watching the interview on TV there was a undercurrent of threat in what he had to say. I think thats a poor and very disgraceful attitude to take to a close ally who has supported the US in every war since world war two. To say to a partner of I think 60 years now (forgive me if I am wrong) after a opposition party in Australia says they are thinking about pulling the troops out if they are elected that they will leave us on are own and to think of what that means in this world is a threat.

Regardless if you support the whole Iraq thing or not to threaten like that is not appropriate behavior. I only hope is the attitude of one man and not the administration or this is a shocking abandonment of old and loyal friends for currant political gain.
