Latest Australian News Headlines
John Howard should be charged with Crimes Against Humanity. Will he be. Not on your nelly. You or I would be, however PMs are protected species. We should not forget it was also John Howard who presided over the Australian wheat board scandal where money changed hands between the AWB and Saddam Hussein, which Saddam may have well used to buy arms to shoot and kill young Australians. Howard went into Iraq to suck up to the US and Israel, and the present Government continues the groveling and continues to put young Australian lives at risk for political reasons. Every now and then we hear a bleat of protest from the Greens over these wars without end, yet it seems they and the left anti War movement in this country agree with Labor blowing young Australian lives away to please Uncle Sam but not with the Libs doing the same. One might note that you won’t find many politician’s kids on the front line in Afghanistan, if any.
