Carr urged to bring Australian troops home from Afghanistan
Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown today urged Foreign Minister Bob Carr to extract Australian combat troops from Afghanistan this year.
"We should be thinking more independently about our foreign policy. My first entreaty to Senator Carr is: do what you can to bring our troops home from this morass in Afghanistan," Senator Brown said.
"All the polls are showing that the people would support the foreign minister if we bring the troops home."
