Republicans, in the minority for the first time in 12 years, issued emotional warnings of the consequences of undermining the president's policies in Iraq. "We will embolden terrorists in every corner in the world. We will give Iran free access to the Middle East," said Republican leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. "And who doesn't believe the the terrorists will just follow our troops home?"
Obviously, if the terrorist can't figure out how to get to America without following the troops home, what we should do is first have the the troops go to Australia. Then give them the slip. The terrorists will be stuck in the South Pacific.
Problem solved. Bonus: It will give John Howard something to worry about.
