Australian Prime Minister John Howard slammed Senator Barack Obama’s plan to withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq. Howard made the remarks on Sunday, a day after Obama announced his plans to run for president in 2008.

Obama said the country’s first priority should be to end the war in Iraq and to remove U.S. troops from the country by March 31, 2008.
