Twisting in the Wind

Who was it that placed the lives of Canadian Soldiers in danger by canceling an order for new helicopters, forcing them to fly in known dangerous ,antiquated Sea Kings? Who was it that purchased USED submarines at a cut rate from the UK that placed Canadian military personnel at risk? Who was it that did not fund the Canadian military at a point that it was at least sustainable? Who was it that sent our troops to Afghanistan in uniforms that stood out so badly that the soldiers had to modify them on their own so they were not instant targets? Who is yelling and screaming about how Taliban prisoners are being treated, not by Canadians I might add, but by the people we are handing them over to? Those same prisoners that Ignatieff of all people should know, are NOT covered under the "Geneva Conventions" that Ignatieff wants us to uphold. The answer to all the above questions is, as PM Harper quite fairly stipulates in this quote...

"I can understand the passion that the leader of the Opposition and members of his party feel for the Taliban prisoners. I just wish occasionally they would show the same passion for Canadian soldiers."

is the Liberal Party of Canada.

It must really pi$$ CBC off when we link to old stories, no?

Good catch on all the links (and your point).

I'm not so sure about that Candace, If they were pissed off about it they could purge their servers of all of it in no time. However they also know that the info is still out there on other sites so what would be the point?

What I find more amazing, is that the liberals cannot seem to fathom that all this information is out there to prove points just like this one. Welcome to the info age people....wake up!
