From Associated Press:
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd told Parliament that Australia must learn from the mistakes of former leader John Howard, who sent 2,000 troops to support US and British forces in the Iraq invasion in 2003…
Rudd will welcome troops home at a parade in the east coast city of Brisbane on June 28.
It took less than six months for Australia to make the decision to pull out their troops out of Iraq. Why on earth is our Gordon Brown dithering over something, which in the eyes of many people, seem so straightforward? Why does he feel that he has to keep our forces in Iraq?
