ONA SHOULD REALLY REVIEW ITS EMPLOYMENT POLICIES.

It's not that membership of the Young Liberals and the ALP and the Democrats and the Greens prove that you're a dimwit.

It's just statements like these:

Former defence analyst Andrew Wilkie says Australian troops should be removed immediately from Iraq to bring stability and peace to Iraqi civilians.

Now a Greens Party member who is standing in this year's federal election, Mr Wilkie says the presence of Coalition troops in Iraq is fuelling internal strife.

Because if we had really cared about Iraqis we would not have closed our borders to them.

He says the Government should focus on mending relationships with Indonesia and Malaysia rather than helping the US-led conflict in Iraq.
