Obama and Australia’s Howard – Opposing Views


I am so furious at the elected officials we have in Congress. MoveOn.org is flooding the networks with an ad insisting that the Republicans won’t allow debate over the troop surge. I have been watching the Senate on CSPN2. The Democrats have done everything they can to keep discussion from happening. The only way the Republicans can get a word in is to frame everything as a “question!”

Obama has now entered the Presidential race. He wants to pull all the troops out in a matter of months if he is elected. Hillary and all the rest of the Democrats are all speaking out against the war. The spectacle is so bad that Prime Minister Howard in Australia chastised our politicians. He said that they were endangering the troop’s efforts and their lives. Obama was specifically mentioned. His reply to Howard was effectively butt out. You have no business interfering in American politics!

I believe Howard has a very valid point. The enemy hears the political discord and it doesn’t take a “brain surgeon” to see that the enemy is following our politics closely. Prime Minister Howard even went to so far as to say that the terrorists want Obama to win. I agree!

There is another aspect to all the political turmoil caused by the unreasonable Democratic demands for withdrawal. We are not the only country that is a member of the coalition. In  my opinion there is no way the remainder of the coalition can complete the mission in Iraq and Afghanistan if American troops are withdrawn.

The same terrorist that are emboldened to step up their attacks against American troops are also attacking the rest of the coalition forces and Iraqi with equal furor. While we are on the topic of withdrawal I have some related additional thoughts.

When the Lenin, Stalin, Marx crowd and Ted Kennedy used Watergate as the straw that broke the camal’s back and forced troop withdrawal from Vietnam they also cut the funds to both Vietnam and Cambodia. As a result of these actions over two and a half million people were massacred.

Recently Senator Kennedy was asked about the resulting deaths. Kennedy never did give a direct answer though the reporter prompted him several times. He actually minimized the number of deaths. Had I been conducting the interview I would have simply asked Senator Kennedy how it felt to be responsible for the genocide of 2.5 million people?

In my opinion Senator Kennedy, specifically, and all those other minions who caused our troops to pull out of Vietnam and subsequently cut those funds are guilty of mass murder. They are at least guilty of depraved indifference. 

So tell me Senator Kennedy? How does it feel to know that your actions caused 2.5 million Vietnamese and Cambodians to be murdered? How does it feel to know that because of your radical ideology, over 50,000 American troops gave their lives for absolutely nothing?

Now we face another challenge to freedom within our own nation. Every other word out of their mouth is about the failings of the war. These people would like for us to think that their dissatisfaction slowly evolved. In fact, the groups behind the so called “peace movement” began making their plans the first week after the Twin Towers fell.

Just how many people have to die needlessly at home and abroad  because of people who hide behind “peace” as they try to tear down the fabric of our nation? How many people must die internationally because the international sponsers  of these groups are also doing the same thing throughout the world?

  1. I found your comments very thought provoking and insightful. I do not agree with all you wrote. But, I did agree with most. What impressed me was your non hostile approach to a very emotional and often heated subject. You not only ask for dialogue at this point in the war effort, but you demonstrate how we can begin that task. My hat is off to you!

  2. It’s late in Dallas, Texas. I can’t sleep and the web pages keep scrolling as my fingers find their search pages. Presto, I find this article and start my pondering thoughts.

    First off, I am an Australian that has moved to the US – 16 years ago. I am like most Australian’s that are very proud of my country. However, the place I call home is both Australia and the US. “Ozzies and the Yanks” are both kindred souls and have a fighting spirit, these are traits that connect us to be percieved and both powerful and respectable. These are traits that were widely respected by the globe, but sadely it seems, this respect has withered. The global polls indicate clearly that the majority of countries do not support the current reqigm in the US and it is a time for change. Similarily, the majority of Australians and Brit’s are requesting the same change in their own governments and surprisingly the Polish have the same noise. There is a clear message here – our wonderful alies all agree it’s time to move on!! However, our governments that placed us there are still resistent in change.

    The war right now and support of the war is not about Iraq but in the fight for democracy and unity. We of the people should have the right, as the people, to vote our preferences. Remember clearly, The preference was not to move to war with Iraq but we decided to proceed. It does not matter how we found ourselves in the situation as the fight has has had many positive results. What is important, is that it never happens again and we get our troops out safely and allow Iraq to manage their land.

    The unity of my countries should never be questioned, the support of Australia towards Us and vise/versa should never be challenged. Do not question this loyalty – as I have seen both lands and walked and talked to both people! Without such a bond of my countries we would not have our freedoms.

    Notwithstanding, it is time for change in my leaders. It is time to protect our economies and securities through deplomicy by utilizing our power in mind, values and truth. The power of muscle is better utilized by reflection and not by demonstration.

    My simple prediction is change will happen to both my governments.

  3. […] An Aussie wants to know if we’re going to cut and run again??? Hear hear! If Mr Obama is ever elected, America should expect less assistance from friendly nations like Australia. If Australia contributes, and Mr Obama disparages the contribution as ‘not enough’, all the while planning to withdraw himself, what are nations like Australia to do? It would be irrational for them to contribute at all; one does not enter a war with a flip-flopper who demands more from others while planning to withdraw.While people like Mr Obama have support, America will either find itself fighting Vietnam over and over, or will withdraw into its borders, and won’t realize its folly until someone smuggles a nuclear bomb into Manhattan, and detonates it.

  4. And who could blame them. You must be willing to stand for something. You must be willing to fight for your freedom to keep it when necessary. I am ashamed of my country’s politician’s most of the time. They lack honesty, integrity, and guts!
