You Will Like the War - OR ELSE!!

Stephen Harper and his band of right wing ideologues believe that they know better than the majority of Canadians. Here is how they see it. A resounding majority of Canadians do not like the current military mission we are undertaking in Afghanistan.

But Stephen Harper thinks Canadians are wrong and he is right. So, at YOUR expense, he has dispatched his Defense Minister, Gordon O'Connor on a Canada wide promotion to 'sell' the war to us.

Mr. O'Connor kicked off a cross-country public-relations blitz on the Afghan war by arguing in Vancouver that terrorists must not be allowed back to the country where the Taliban and al-Qaeda once flourished.

During the next election campaign (the sooner the better) Mr. Harper and his neo-Reformers will be shown that Canadians have it right and he has it wrong.

Shouldn't O'connor be trying to "sell us the war" in the House of Commons, in committee and in meaningful, debates with a binding vote.

Like the Dutch.

Our parliament rubber-stamped (barely) his extension through the last non-binding debate with two days notice and a 6 hour debate.

It took us over a week of pure debate (with a lot more lead up time than 2 days) to decided to get into WWII.

These guys are cowards - afraid they will lose to the will of the Canadian people.
