It’s not like John Howard said anything that we haven’t already heard from the Al Qaeda terrorists themselves.
Australia’s National 9 News aired this report on John Howard’s reaction to Obama’s call to flee Iraq by March of next year and the democratic plan to fight terror:
Really… Was this really so surprising?
After all, Al Qaeda was openly rooting for democrats in 2006 and celebrated the Republican loss after the election.
And, they weren’t the only enemy of America that celebrated the democrat’s win.
So did Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, and North Korea!
The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Howard’s slam on the democratic cut and run plan:
The conservative leader said on commercial television that Senator Obama’s pledges on Iraq were good news only for insurgents operating in the war-ravaged country.
“I think he’s wrong. I think that will just encourage those who want to completely destabilise and destroy Iraq, and create chaos and a victory for the terrorists to hang on and hope for an Obama victory,” Mr Howard told the Nine Network.
“If I were running al-Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008 and be praying as many times as possible for a victory not only for Obama but also for the Democrats.”

Update: (Sunday 11:40 PM) The video was not playing at YouTube for a while but it looks like it may be available again now. I took “barak obama” off the tags line so maybe YouTube will allow it to play for a while.
