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.

Clintoon needs to mind his own business instead of sticking his nose in ours.

Hillier himself almost took a "hit" today while he was in a "friendly discussion" with a single elderly native.

When Layton referred to changed circumstances since the troops arrived in Kandahar perhaps he was referring to fact that Afghanistan could be complete trap. The countrymen on the one hand want help in rebuilding but at sametime they entertain long hatred after Clinton ordered indiscriminate boming where tens of thousands of Afghans perished and thens of thousands more starved to death.

I say any foreign intervention now is despised. That is why a sixteen year old Afghan boy took to axing one of our soldiers. He was a regular Afghan citizen, not a Taliban or Al qaeda.

Our Canadian soldiers have simply been sent on a "suicide mission" at behest of two parties and like Clinton and Bush, the war machines make the profits for some.

Canadians should ask which some?

The electorate must speak to this in debate on floor. The Afghans themselves in all likelihood hold same ideas as Taliban and Al quada.

First off I want to commend PM Stephen Harper for going to Afghanistan in a display of support for our troops. I very much doubt we would see Paul Martin, or Jack Layton doing the same thing, especially with so little fanfare as Harper has made of this move. This is leadership, and I hope that Canadians recognize it as such.
To be fair, Jack Layton was calling for a debate on the Afghan deployment before the last election when the Liberals first announced it. What is really hypocritcal are people like Ujjah Dosanjh from the Liberals standing up now and demanding that this deployment be debated.
Everyone who is demanding a debate in the House because of the shift of troops from Kabul to Khandahar is playing politics and demeaning the lives of those Canadians that have been lost in Afghanistan. Do we need a debate? I think we do when the time comes up to discuss our role at the end of this year long deployment. But until that time we need to stop this petty political nonsence, especially from the Liberals, but also from the loony lefties at the CBC, and show that we support the Canadian troops on the ground in Afghanistan.

Does anyone remember the photo-op of Clinton on his stint in Africa being surrounded by enthusiastic countrymen trying to welcome him and inadvertently pressing too close? The look of terror on his face was incredible. And he's pounding out at $150,000./speech that he's so proud Canada's in Afghanistan now hunting the Taliban/Al qaeda AND rebuilding infrastructure. WHAT A HERO!
And Canadians are paying for this and lapping it up. Intelligence deficit or what. The war economy is just SO EXCITING. Defense contract bucks rolling in big time. So darn exciting. Taxpayers get excited too. THINK please
