Howard Wins In Australia!!

John Howard, the Australian Prime Minister who has stood beside America in the war on terror, has won re-election over Mark Latham, the anti-war candidate who had promised to pull out Australian troops if elected. Not only did he win, it looks as though he increased his party's majority. This is fantatstic news for Australia and fantastic news for the war in Iraq. Hopefully it is a harbinger of news for the Bush administration as they fight to lead the world against the evil's of Islamic terror.

Had Howard lost the election, the media in this country would have jumped on the news as proof that the electorate in America is ready to dump Bush because fo teh war in Iraq. Now Howard won, the press will not be able to spin the election as a fereendum on the war in Iraq, so they will most likely ignore it entirely.
