Good move, dumb comment

The US House of Representatives voted to pass the Free Trade Agreement with Australia today. Good stuff. However:

Moreover, the agreement would reward Australia for its support of US military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. The economic pact, said House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas is "strengthening an alliance that is as strong as any in the world".

"Australia has been a true friend and ally," said Jennifer Dunn.

"They've been there when it counted the most, on the shores of Normandy, on the streets of Baghdad."

err yeah, except Australia wasn't there on the shores of Normandy, that would be Britain and Canada.
