Australia's 70 year old PM John Howard added new soldiers to the list of the countries war dead today.

"It is fitting that on Remembrance Day we honour our Iraqi War Dead who died to protect Iraq and us. One shot himself and the other was in someone else’s army,"

"Our fight in Iraq is another chapter in our countries proud military history of doing what other bigger countries tell us to do. From South Africa to Gallipoli to Iraq, we will continue to snivel and grovel before our betters."

At the end of the ceremony they blew their bugles and all went home.
