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.
