    Mogadon Mark very own foreign policy places Australia in a position of increased attacks by terrorist


    From Canberra Chief Political Correspondent Catherine McGrath reports.

    CATHERINE MCGRATH: This was Mark Latham defending Labor's record on Iraq, but also outlining his future support for the United States.

    Labor backed war in Afghanistan and would do so again.

    MARK LATHAM: We supported the deployment of Australia's military forces to the immediate conflict in Afghanistan and the wider war against terrorism. A clear-cut attack had occurred on the United States and a clear location was established for the source of that attack. Should another attack produce an identifiable source, we would be prepared to support similar action. That is a rock solid Labor commitment.

    Al Qaeda tape urges Muslims to hit US allies

    Senior Al Qaeda official Ayman al-Zawahri, in a purported audio tape aired on Friday, urged Muslims to set up an organised resistance to hit the interests of "crusader America" and its allies throughout the world, including Australia.

    "We should not wait until US, British, French, Jewish, South Korean, Hungarian or Polish forces enter Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen and Algeria before we resist," said the voice on the audio tape aired by Al Jazeera television.

    "Let us start resisting now. The interests of America, Britain, Australia, France, Poland, Norway, South Korea and Japan are spread everywhere.

    "They all took part in the invasion of Afghanistan, Iraq or Chechnya or enabled Israel to survive."
