Australia is to Iowa as...
The Labor party, led by Kevin Rudd won a big victory in Australia today. John Howard is out as Australia's Prime Minister and Mr. Rudd has pledged to immediately pull Australian troops out of Iraq and to sign the Kyoto Agreement.
Australia has 550 troops in Iraq right now. There are 950 in Afghanistan as of mid-2007. Will they stay or go? It may not seem like a big thing, but is a a foreshadowing of things to come?
