Harper's Military Move
So while Stephen Harper wasn't able to get Canada into a fight in Iraq, he seems to have achieved something like that in Afganistan. I find it note worthy that our first aggressive military operation has been code named 'Peacekeeper'. That will make the folks back home feel more comfortable I am sure.
So what is Harper up to with his military strategy? Is it based on Republican ideology? Is it based on his vision of a 'war economy' being good for Canadian business.
Jack Layton has called for a full debate in the House of Commons on the nature of our mission, the timetable, budget implications and human resource commitment. If we are so anxious to bring democratic process to Afganistan, why is Harper so afraid to exercise it at home?
