Australian troops under fire in Iraq;

Australian soldiers in Iraq have come under fire for the first time since their deployment to the Al Muthanna province.

Howard will take a beating if anything serious occurs. The debate over the Iraq war fizzed out before it was resolved. Who cares about thousands of dead Iraqis (yeah, but they're damned stoked there ain't no Saddam in power, no more!), not us, but a dead Aussie? We'll freak. Bali style.
