Referred to by some as Australia's Ann Coulter, Right-wing political commentator, Pierce Kramer, has written a controversial open letter to the Australian Prime Minister, Mr John Howard, advising him to distance himself as far as he can from U.S. President, George W. Bush, and get out of Iraq as quickly as possible.
In his advice, published at http://believeme.valuesaustralia.com, he claims that Bush is at the point of imploding. The signs, says Kramer, include his recent flip-flop on his previously stridently promoted policy, 'Stay the Course,' claiming in an interview with George Stephanopoulos that he had never been 'stay the course' although numerous examples of its use by himself and his spokespeople have been posted at Youtube, the social video site recently purchased by Google for $1.2Bn.
Kramer tells the PM that this is just one of the signs that Bush is in over his head. He also controversially claims that James Baker and Henry Kissinger have been sent in by Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush, to try to dig his son out of a desperate political hole.
In his open letter to the Australian Prime Minister, in more than usually strident and candid language, Kramer also refers to George W. Bush's religious convictions and the reference reported in the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, that Bush told Abu Abbas "God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East." His comment that Bush's religiosity is a sign of an impending "implosion" by a President no longer in control, is certain to attract a fierce backlash from supporters of both Bush and Howard.
Likening, with the President, the current Iraq crisis to Vietnam, Kramer urges Prime Minister Howard to get out of what he predicts will be a disaster before his government is implicated in a defeat like the Vietnam War which would lead to a loss of the momentum to the right which he suggests John Howard has been fostering.
