Come Home Soon

I must say I think that how both the Wood family and the Australian government are handling the terrible situation of Mr. Woods captivity in Iraq in the best possible way.

The fact that Mr. Downer is not interfering in attempts by the Wood family to free their brother, despite the possibility that money may be exchanging hands is commendible. I applaud the involvement of the Sheik, despite his ill-diciplined language, I hope his involvement works.

I pray that Mr. Wood makes it out of there, and I wish our troops home.

It is interesting that Mr. Downer and Mr Hill are intimating that Australia may pull its troops out by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Defence Minister Robert Hill and Foreign Minister Alexander Downer
appear to have softened their stance on Australia's involvement in the coalition
of the willing, saying Australia might pull out of Iraq by the end of the year
It does conveniently coincide with the mooted Japanese withdrawal at the same time, and it does suggest that the Government would like to finish up there as soon as it can.
