    Blind Faith

    Stardate 6132.67

    Stephen Harper's lack of ability to maintain any sort of classical diplomatic stance when it comes to foreign affairs like the current Middle East crisis is almost embarassing. He is ready to blame everyone for everything, except Israel. In fact, he goes so far as to actually blame the UN for leaving the Observation post manned while the crisis is going on! Well gee whiz, I think *that* is exactly why they are there!
    "We want to find out why this United Nations post was attacked and also why it remained manned during what is now, more or less, a war during obvious danger to these individuals," said Harper.
    He also did not condemn Israel's show of force.
    "I think this event is obviously a terrible tragedy," he said. "But that doesn't change the right of a country to defend itself against terrorists and violent attacks."
    The unwarranted attacks on the UN outpost came after at least 10 calls were made to Israeli troops, pleading for them to stop bombing the well-marked Observation compound. One Canadian is feared dead and 3 others are confirmed. The Canadian, Major Paeta "Wolf" Hess-von Kruedener loved his work according to friends and family, and Harper blaming the UN for not pulling their men out is a slap in the face of Wolf's family and peers.

    In other statements, harper says he doubts they attacked the base on purpose since they are cooperating with Canada in our evacuation efforts. Wow. Like the Israelis knew we had a guy at the Observation post. This just stinks. Excessive force, civilian targets, UN bases. This has got to stop, and our leadership has to see this for what it really is, and it sure as hell isn't defense.

    Next time one of our soldiers dies in Afghanistan, remind me to ask H-Dawg why our troops haven't been pulled out, since the region is obviously in a state of "pretty much war".

    As an aside, a poll on CTV suggests that 59% of voters believe the attack was intentional.
