It sure beats the Candian contribution to world affairs recently. Oh yes, they wanted to put up a monument to draft dodgers. I forgot.
That monument was an effort of private citizens not of the Canadian Government. I really have no opinion other to say that we are free to do what we want in this country within the bounds of the law. And paying homage to conscientious objectors is much more valiant than voting draft “avoiders” like Cheney and Bush to office. So what is worse? Leaving the country because you have no option or getting your rich daddy to pull some strings? “It ain’t me…I’m no fortunate one.”
Canada's contribution in world affairs is centered around non-interference. We tend to not create situations that put our safety and national security at risk for the sake of exploitation and financial gain.
Afghanistan and Iraq? Are you trying to tell me that the issues are being resolved "on time"? And that the elections are truly democratic? Aren't there some parties that are outlawed? How can you call these democratic elections when you place limitations on the populace?
Korea is an example of a situation where US involvement not only missed the timetable, but deteriorated to the point where the entire effort was a waste of time as the countries were abruptly vacated. Ditto for Vietnam. And even for Iraq in Desert Storm.
Now back to the topic. I notice that an anti-Kerry group wishes to broadcast a made for TV
movie that discredits Kerry. The backers say it is a sincere movie that exposes a fatal character flaw in Kerry. Another example of a corrupt system if you ask me. Almost anyone can seemingly run around claiming what they want about candidates with vitally no fear of reprisal. How can that be?
I watched an interview on “FOX” (Yah…I don’t know why I bother watching….but its like watching a car accident) where the movie’s prime backer tried to disassociate the movie from the real purpose claiming the timing was coincidental. Perhaps a fair compromise would be to broadcast it back to back with Fahrenheit 911.
