Howard: We don't need the UN « Previous | |Next »
March 7, 2003

So John Howard is planning to spurn the UN. He reassures us citizens though Parliament that his 'government will never act in breach of international law.'

Well John Howard's conception of international law is that national interest prevails. Thats what the Tampa incident indicated. And Iraq? Well that might is right. We are just part of the US posse that is little more than a bunch of vigilantes with the UN. And we off to a hanging, to hanging a non-white.

Is it any wonder that others are saying whoa there. Hang about. Lets cool the macho/Rambo stuff for a moment.

But the posse is not really interested in listening. They are too fired up. They want a fight.

I am reliably informed that group(s) of prominent Australians are preparing to stop an illegal war cold through legal channels. Only problem is, Daryl Williams stands in the way.
