Howard's Last Chance

Open letter to John Howard, Prime Minister of Australia.

Dear Sir,
As you are probably aware, there are elections due in Australia on 2007-11-24. Here is a speech I recommend you make to the Australian people. I doubt it will work, because of the gross immorality of the Australian people, but at least you will be able to go on record as having done the right thing.

Fellow Australians,

We stand at an important crossroad in world history. I won't bother talking about what a great economy our policies have created, because that is beyond dispute. I will instead concentrate on the greatest moral issue of our time, and quite probably history.

Somehow, despite decades of having a culture that is opposed to racism, the Labor party has managed to convince people to believe that freedom for brown people is of no value. This is probably a hangover from the days of Vietnam when the Labor party yawned as millions of South Vietnamese allies were sent to communist gulags or drowned trying to escape a cruel dictatorship.

My fellow Australians, this is something that every Australian should be disgusted about Kevin Rudd believes that if the Iraqis return to having a government that rapes women and chops off the tongues of Iraqi men, that Australia should be a disinterested party. He hasn't quite explained why it's OK to give brown people in Indonesia aid after the tsunami, to help their standard of living, but it's not OK to give aid to Iraq to ensure basic human rights are protected. I'd hate to see the world through Rudd's eyes, that's for sure.

If Rudd abandons the Iraqi people, as he has said he will, Australia will go down in history as an immoral nation. At the moment, when people try to accuse Australia of immorality, they have to dredge up things from the past, or simply fabricate things in the present, because they can't actually find anything that current Australians are doing wrong. That will radically change if you elect Rudd. It will be your generation that did the grossly immoral act of betraying an ally. And it will be your generation that spat in the face of past veterans by showing that Australians are cowards who run from a fight.

I pledge the exact opposite. I pledge that Australia will ensure that Iraq remains free, and, listen carefully - regardless of whether the Americans turn out to be cowards and abandon their Iraqi allies themselves. In Vietnam, it was Australia who blinked first. I swear that on my watch, Australia will not be less brave or moral than the Americans. And if the Americans pull out and we find that Australia does not have the military might to protect the Iraqis from whatever danger they face, then we will call in favours from around the world and get them to assist us in our mission, as we assisted them in the past.

Fellow Australians, Rudd has tried to claim that we went to Iraq to steal oil. I can assure you that that couldn't be further from the truth. Only an imbecile like Rudd would not understand that oil is sold at market prices, and from Australia's perspective, it doesn't make any difference whether Iraq is a democracy or a dictatorship (at least as far as the oil is concerned). Nor is it under our "control". Oil is a fungible commodity and it doesn't make any difference who Maliki sells oil to, and he pumps it at the same rate that Saddam does - ie the maximum capacity. This action of liberating Iraq has been paid for by the Australian taxpayer, with no strings attached. Rudd just knows that he would never unselfishly help anyone, so projects his own sociopathic tendencies onto me and my government.

Now Australia has a stark choice to make. Does it go down in history as racist cowardly traitors, or does it go down as defender of the free world? Our ancestors spilled a lot of blood in previous wars to win our deserved reputation of defenders of the free world. If that reputation is lost, it will be lost by our generation, not theirs. There's nothing more I can say. You either believe that brown people have the right to not be raped etc, or you believe that some races are inferior and don't deserve the same rights you currently enjoy. Please don't vote for a white supremacist like Rudd. Vote for freedom instead. I can guarantee you that God is not on Rudd's side. Nor is science.
