has Downer lost the last of his few remaining marbles?
In today's Sydney Morning Herald, our Minister For Foreign Foul-ups, Alexander (The Great) Downer is quoted as having lost the plot entirely.
His idiotic statements are based on some pretty idiotic assumptions:
Idiotic assumption #1: The Iraqi government can rein in the insurgents.
Idiotic assumption #2: The Iraqi government is so worried about an Australian troop pull-out that it will suddenly develop the ability to walk on water (i.e. rein in the insurgents.)
Idiotic assumption #3: The majority of Iraqi people want us there.
Idiotic assumption #4: The majority of Australian people still believe Downer, HoWARd, & Co.
But then, Downer's always been very good at making idiotic statements, hasn't he?
