Iraq war start George Bush gets John Howard Alexander Downer like dogs enthusiastically go walkies 2002-09-02
I believe this cartoon is one of the best I did about the Iraq War. Howard and Downer salivate at the thought of joining Bush’s Iraq War, which had so many disastrous consequences and ended weakening the US. It distracted the West from its efforts to capture Bin Laden and punish the Taliban for harbouring him. I’m writing this note in 2012, knowing that it ended in humiliation for Bush. It was done all in the name of the Australia-US alliance but we would have been better allies to refuse to go. The cartoon won a Quill Award.
