JOHN Howard will today rule out an imminent withdrawal of Australian combat troops from Iraq, staking an election-year position on staying the course in the Middle East.
The Prime Minister will spell out an unambiguous commitment to a long-term Australian military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In a major security speech, Mr Howard will stress the stark consequences of a failure by the US and its allies to secure Iraq.
He will argue that the military coalition cannot allow weariness, frustration or political convenience to dictate strategy in Iraq.

He really gets it right. Australia is blessed to have him as its Prime Minister.
