Greens slam government's plan to send more Australians to Iraq violence

Senator Brown, Monday, September 4, 2006

"The Government's decision to send an extra 40 Australian troops to Iraq is wrong and culpable," Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.

"Mr Howard is helping make up for the Bush administration's plan to withdraw more US troops as US domestic support has slumped," Senator Brown said.

"The bloodbath in Baghdad is appalling and Australian troops should be withdrawn," Senator Brown said.
