Brown nosing does pay...

Howard to receive US presidential award
Tuesday, January 06, 2009 » 09:45am



Former prime minister John Howard will receive the US Presidential Medal of Freedom at a White House ceremony next week.

The award is said to be the highest civilian honour bestowed by a United States president.

Mr Howard is being honoured for his role in fighting terrorism and for standing by the US as an ally during his 11 years as prime minister.

'Yes, I am honoured by it, more because of the compliment it pays to our country Australia,' Mr Howard told ABC Radio.

'It's an indication of the very close relationship between our two countries and I'm very pleased that during the time as prime minister I was able to contribute too.'

It was testament to the very obvious personal warmth between himself and President George W Bush.

Former British prime minister Tony Blair and Columbia's president Alvaro Uribe will also receive medals in the ceremony.

Mr Bush has awarded 78 of the medals during his two terms as US president.

Wow.

Well Howard was more of an Australian than you would ever be 420 SE.

Coming from you, why thank you very much.

I'd a whole lot rather be ignorant than an idiot. There ain't no 12 step for stupid there Zitgeist.

So, 420 SE, are you ashamed that the Aussie Army joined the Allies in Iraq?
