Canadian Lefty Wusses Bitch-Slapped by Clinton
Can Jack Layton and the CBC shut-hell-up now about Canada's role in Afghanistan. Even the poster child for "Progressive" politics agrees with the UN sanctioned, NATO led, International mission in Afghanistan. From this story - Clinton thanks Canada for Afghanistan commitment:
"It's painful that you're losing people there and I'm sorry," Clinton said Thursday in a speech to 7,000 people at Rexall Place.
"But you've done a good thing for the cause of freedom and the stability of Canada.
"And as a citizen I am profoundly grateful that you've stayed the course and I appreciate it," he said to applause.
Now I don't always agree with this man, accept sometimes when he contradicts himself, but I agree 100% with his sentiments here. This mission is not about George Bush or Oil or any other 'lefty' or 'righty' politics. The mission is about increasing the stability and quality of life for the people of Afghanistan as well as taking away a base of operations to those that would throw the world into chaos in order to impose their fascist interpretation of Islam.
Lefties and Progressives everywhere, your leader has spoken. It's time to stop being a bunch of isolationists and resume your role and responsibilities as world citizens.
Update: Socialist Gulag has a good take on this as well.
