Kathy from Austin reviews the news:
God, I just love John Howard. His news conference with Tony Blair has been playing on all the cable news channels here in the states. As is typical with these gatherings, a reporter asked the Australian Prime Minister a dumb ass question that indicated blame should be placed as usual, on the victims due to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Howard hit it out of the park in blunt, no nonsense language. He pointed out that 9/11, Bali and other atrocities had been committed PRIOR to Iraq and that in fact, OBL had tied his hatred of Australia to the East Timor operation. He then went on to school this stupid reporter about his tendency to blame victims instead of the terrorists. Tony Blair was left to respond that he agreed “100%” and could not have said it better. John Howard: ya gotta love a guy who calls a spade a spade.
