Outrage of the Day

• Views: 819

John Kerry’s sister has gone to Australia, to tell the Australian people that the Howard government’s alliance with the Bush administration is putting them in danger. (Hat tip: Captain’s Quarters.)

This is certainly a new low for the Kerryites—undermining our alliances in the Iraq War while the war is going on, and pandering to the appeasement crowd in a blatant attempt to influence the Australian elections. I can’t say I’m shocked, but it does qualify as the outrage of the day.

JOHN Kerry’s campaign has warned Australians that the Howard Government’s support for the US in Iraq has made them a bigger target for international terrorists.

Diana Kerry, younger sister of the Democrat presidential candidate, told The Weekend Australian that the Bali bombing and the recent attack on the Australian embassy in Jakarta clearly showed the danger to Australians had increased.

“Australia has kept faith with the US and we are endangering the Australians now by this wanton disregard for international law and multilateral channels,” she said, referring to the invasion of Iraq.

Asked if she believed the terrorist threat to Australians was now greater because of the support for Republican George W. Bush, Ms Kerry said: “The most recent attack was on the Australian embassy in Jakarta — I would have to say that.”

Ms Kerry, who taught school in Indonesia for 15 years until 2000, is heading a campaign called Americans Overseas for Kerry which aims to secure the votes of Americans abroad — including the more than 100,000 living in Australia.
