PM accused of putting Australians at risk
"Despite Mr Howard's words to the contrary, Australian Democrats Leader Andrew Bartlett said the prime minister had guaranteed Australia's commitment to war against Iraq when he confirmed a military contingent would head to the region. "It is two-faced for the prime minister to continue to claim no decision has been made about joining a war with Iraq, while actually sending Australian troops," he said.

"Senator Bartlett said such a move was putting Australians in greater danger of being targeted by terrorists. "Mr Howard's gung-ho attitude is needlessly making all Australians a greater target for terrorists worldwide," he said."
