Strong anti-war article by Labor MP Carmen Lawrence
"The rhetoric of Bush administration invites us to believe that they are good international citizens, interested only in bringing democracy to downtrodden people and preventing the development of weapons of mass destruction. Sadly, neither is true. And the United States has reserved to itself the right to act as it chooses. The Howard Government not only endorses this stance, but angered our neighbours when Howard recently indicated that he believed he would be justified in bombing our neighbours in order to hit terrorist targets."

Resigning from the frontbench and speaking her mind are the best things she could have done. More Labor MPs should also find the courage to speak their minds on an issue which must be of concern to many of them.
