Murtha to Howard (much as a wife beater to a neighbor who has called him on it): "Hey--I'm doing a good job of betraying my own country and selling out its soldiers, thank you! I don't need no stinkin' Aussie to wreck my buzz!"
US veteran joins chorus of
outrage at Howard Michael Gawenda Herald Correspondent in Washington February 14, 2007
THE leading critic of the Iraq war in the US House of Representatives has demanded that John Howard stay out of US domestic politics.
He defended the presidential contender Barack Obama's suggestion that if Mr Howard was keen on the war, he should send more Australian troops to Iraq.
John Murtha, a decorated Marine veteran who is close to military commanders (I still want to see the list of military commanders that Murtha is "close to"--ed), and who galvanised leading Democrats into demanding a phased withdrawal from Iraq, said he appreciated that Australia had been a good ally, but that it was US soldiers whose lives were being sacrificed in Iraq and US taxpayers who were paying for the war.
Question: If Murtha is so concerned about the money we're spending and about our soldiers, why is he so hell-bent on our defeat and on undermining their mission at every turn?
It is precisely because Australia has been such a staunch ally in the GWOT that Murtha has his fatboy panties in a wad.
What's the matter, Jihad Jack-- does the truth that Prime Minister Howard Speaks hit a little too close to home?
Murtha not only has "joined the chorus" of America-haters and seditionists who advocate for our defeat for political gain;
Hell--he's the fucking conductor.
