Now THAT'S an Ally!
Pime Minister of Australia, John Howard, praised the USA in a speech at the Council of Foreign Relations in Chicago yesterday.
"Without American leadership, the trials and tragedies of recent years could be but a prelude of darker days to come," Mr Howard said in an address yesterday to the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations. "With American leadership, we can build a better world — not just for us, but for all."

Howard has been a staunch ally and we in America should take note and remember his efforts. The Auzzies are a great people and are probably the closest to "American" in their outlook than any other country, including England.
"To the voices of anti-Americanism around the world, to those who shout 'Yankee go home', let me offer some quiet advice: be careful what you wish for."
How right he is. The USA has been a beacon of liberty, prosperity and freedom since the first boat full of landed on our shores.
Every American should keep John Howard in our prayers and he should occupy a special place in our hearts. And we should remember, as well, the people of Australia.
