The Australian Senate passed a non-confidence motion against the Prime Minister John Howard today in connection with the deployment of Australian troops against Iraq. The motion is the first resolution of this type in the Australian history. The opposition accuses Mr. Howard of sending Australian soldiers to war without consulting the nation, the Parliament and without a sanction from the United Nations.
At the same time, United States initiated the deployment of two dozen B-52 and B-1 bombers to Guam in the anticipation of a possible military intervention in North Korea. Regular withdrawals of US soldiers from South Korean bases have been cancelled.
