Canadians attacked in the Middle East

For those who believe that peacekeeping is a badge terrorists respect (yes that means Carolyn Parish and her supporters):

Group claims Sinai peacekeeper attack

"The lions of jihad ... pounced on a vehicle of the multinational force, killing three Israelis and two Canadians and wounding two others," claimed the internet statement, whose authenticity could not be confirmed

However It appears that they were only slightly hurt though...Thank god.

In Iraq we have Paul Martin contradicting himself in the same statement regarding the death of Zaid Meerwali:

"It is with both profound sadness and abhorrence that I learned of the circumstances of his death," Martin said.

"Canada vehemently condemns this barbaric crime, and remains committed to working both bilaterally and multilaterally to help build a prosperous and peaceful democracy in Iraq."

Bullshit! Canadians for the most part are too busy blaming Bush for the whole violence (the one that the Iraqi insurgents are carrying out) to care about the overall situation in Iraq. Anyway, here comes the contradiction:

Martin reminded Canadians against traveling to Iraq.

"Any Canadians in Iraq should leave," he said. "The situation remains volatile and the government of Canada cannot provide consular assistance to Canadian citizens in distress."

In other words, Canada wants to help...but it doesn't want to do anything over there. The article continues:

There is no Canadian embassy in Iraq.

Now how exactly do you plan to help Iraq without having any kind of political dialogue with the country?

Its the classical Paul Martin school of Foreign policy, speak loudly and carry and short stick.

I would argue that PMPM's argument is speak loudly and carry NO STICK.

If there was an embassy, that would give credibility to what America and her allies have done there.

Oh god, im sure you would love to see action against Iran, you Arab dog, but just know that we Iranians are not weak like you incompetent Arabs. SO you can advocate dropping bombs on Iran all you want, our word counts

They didn't even defend their citizens that were tortured to death in Iran why would they help Iraq? they have become useless demagoues that can't even defend their own borders let alone project force.

Arabian dissent,

" Arabian Knight, you rock!!"
You bet!

This is fantastic, finally a blogger from Quebec supporting the war.
I am speechless, "completement bouche bée"!
I'm from Quebec and I know about 6 people who support the efforts in Iraq.
Still very uspet at our Nation for not supporting our friends and neighbours in this most important mission of our time.

Hope to God Canada wakes up, fast!!!

Hey, Louise,
Thanks for the link to Arabian Dissent.

Oh come on. Martin is better than Chretien. His stance was speak softly and carry a wet noodle. Or stick your tongue out at the giant next door and go na-na-na-na-na-na-an and whine when the giant doesn't start crying and beg forgiveness.

If Bush attacks Iran, israel will be gone. All the US needs to do is fund a student democratic movement. Freedom for Iranians is their responsibility and will require a revolution.

Bush, as you say, won't attack Iran.
It's politically insane and there are other ways to deal with Iran.
Israel is also capable of dealing with Iran militarly, and they will if needed.
Iranians are well aware of the power of freedom, that helps in any regime revolution.

Hey, Candace, I clicked on your name and I see we are neighbours. I live a half hour south of you. Small world.
