Thank You John Howard
I have always been a great fan of Australia's John Howard. Like Tony Blair, he had balls of steel and the character to back it up. A great man, a great leader, and a great friend to the US and its Armed Forces.
Thank you for showing the world how a real leader should act when faced with adversity. Howard guaranteed Australia's role as a key player on the world stage for the 21st Century. He transformed Australia's once stagnant economy into an Asian power house, no matter how much the Labor Party tried to weaken it and weaken Howard. He was a true champion of freedom for all.
Thank you John Howard.
From Jules Crittenden -
"All I have to say is that in his 11 years, Howard not only built the economy at home but advanced Australia, a small, remote nation, as a moral force in the South Pacific, Asia and the world. There are a lot of other small nations out there that could stand to learn from Australia’s example. "
"The nations leading the fight against terrorism have balls nearly the size of my own, and terrorists have despised us for decades over this and many other reasons."

John Howard is definitely an unsung friend of the United States.11:54 AM
My heart sank when I learned the Australian election outcome.
His successor totally buys into the "global warming" fiasco, plans to sign the Kyoto treaty, and will undoubtedly begin pulling Australian troops from Iraq as soon as he takes office.
It is a sad day for the US as well as for Australia.
I'm not worried much about Kyoto. They're already drafting its successor because they realized it did so little to actually help the environment. All it ended up doing was hurting nations economically.
If the new one can find a way to make green-energy affordable, and allow nations to adopt those energy sources at their own pace without hurting their economic growth, I might consider supporting it.
Anything's gotta be better then Kyoto. It was a waste of paper.
Howard was a great guy. I was in Australia during his 2004 elections and his adversaries were brutalizing the guy for having troops in Iraq. The Aussies out here are some of the best trained, hardest fighting men and women in the world.
They will be missed. I hope to serve with them again some day.
