U.S. To Aussie Troops: "Rudd's A Pussy; We Got Your Back"

The U.S. is planning to send extra forces to provide security for Australian troops in Afghanistan after the Rudd government declined to send any more.

This will solve the immediate problem looming for the 1,550 Australian soldiers when the Dutch forces providing security withdraw later this year.

A retired Australian general, the former chief of operations for coalition forces in Iraq, Jim Molan, said: ''For the U.S. to replace the Dutch would be an abrogation of Australia's responsibilities.

''Once again, the U.S. cavalry is galloping to our rescue. It's wrong to say that Australia cannot do it, or that the U.S. doesn't need the Australians. We can do it, and the U.S. desperately needs troops.''
