Poll: - 82% Of Canadians Oppose Iraq War - Harper Wanted Canada In Iraq!

A huge majority of Canadians - fully 82% strongly oppose the War in Iraq. But let's not forget that Stephen Harper wanted Canadian soldiers to invade Iraq with Bush.

"It is inherently dangerous to allow a country such as Iraq to retain weapons of mass destruction, particularly in light of its past aggressive behaviour. If the world community fails to disarm Iraq, we fear that other rogue states will be encouraged to believe that they too can have these most deadly of weapons to systematically defy international resolutions and that the world will do nothing to stop them."
- Stephen Harper
(supporting the American invasion of Iraq)
House of Commons
March 20, 2003.
No weapons of mass destruction have been ever been found in Iraq.

Coming to the HoC this fall:


"It is inherently dangerous to allow a country such as Iran to retain weapons of mass destruction, particularly in light of its past aggressive behaviour. If the world community fails to disarm Iran, we fear that other rogue states will be encouraged to believe that they too can have these most deadly of weapons to systematically defy international resolutions and that the world will do nothing to stop them."


- Prime Minister Stephen Harper

* In March 2003, the Canadian Alliance was the only party in the Commons to vote against a Bloc Québécois resolution to stay out of the war. At the time, Harper said "in reading only the polls, indulging a juvenile and insecure anti-Americanism, this government has for the first time in our history left us outside our British and American allies in their time of need."

* "In the final analysis," he added, "disarming Iraq is necessary for the long-term security of the world, to the collective interest of our historic allies and, therefore, manifestly it is in the national interest of this country."

* A few days later, on March 28, 2003 as the invasion began, Harper wrote a letter to the Wall Street Journal in which he reiterated those views and said: "The Canadian Alliance – the official Opposition in Parliament – supports the American and British position because we share their concerns, their worries about the future if Iraq is left unattended to, and their fundamental vision of civilization and human values."

(Pesky CBC likely a Liberal plot)

Harper back pedaling:

On Iraq, while I support the removal of Saddam Hussein and applaud the efforts to establish democracy and freedom in Iraq, I would not commit Canadian troops to that country. I must admit great disappointment at the failure to substantiate pre-war intelligence information regarding Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction.
(Stephen Harper, letter to the Washington Times, December 11, 2005)

I supported the Liberal decision not to go to Iraq. Even if Chretien was being disingenuous regarding his intentions.

Notice that the two newspapers are conservative owned.

Wall Street Journal is part of Rupert Murdoch's empire--as is Fox news.

Washington Times--not the Post-- is run by Rev. Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church.
A recent statement for the Washington Times shows less than 100,000 daily circulation--hardly an influential or highly considered paper.

How can we put such a f**king guys as a Prime Minister ?
