(Obama spokesperson Robert) Gibbs went on to say that Howard was not in a position to be overly critical.
"If Prime Minister Howard truly believes what he says, perhaps his country should find its way to contribute more than just 1,400 troops so some American troops can come home," he said. "It's easy to talk tough when it's not your country or your troops making the sacrifices."
Really, that is a very true statement.
But one should also take Obama's anti-war stance in the same context; it was easy for him and his fellow leftists to "talk tough" about not removing Saddam and not getting after the corruption-ridden UN who was facilitating his brutality and genocide when it was Iraq and millions of Iraqis making the sacrifices for his "peace".
What makes it really amusing is that he throws public hissy fits about the US needing to militarily intervene in Darfur to stop the genocide there -- which Saddam made look like a bunch of middle-school girls spreading gossip in comparison. But then again, that's typical; the media has publicized Darfur, and covered up for Saddam Hussein.
As the Democrat adage goes, it's not the number of bodies that matter; it's the number of TV cameras.
