These two articles precisely point out that the Australians "get it". They understand the importance of the GWOT and that Iraq is an integral part of that war. No, there is no evidence linking Saddam and his ilk to 9/11. There is concrete proof that he financed the self-exploding morons in Palestine. He paid their families 25K a piece for the blood of their sons (and sometimes daughters).
I had an arguement with a leftist I know who honestly try to claim that this was not supporting terrorism, but rather, compensation for the IDF leveling their houses afterwards. Right. Sure.
I seriously doubt George Bush's re-election will be seen as a vindication of his foreign policy. More likely it will be a redux of the "angry white male" myth propigated after the 1994 elections. Either that or the claims of voter fraud will continue for another 4 years. God help me. I don't know if I can listen to that tripe anymore.
