The Ideologically driven and perfectly contrived and newfound importance of militarism and the way in which he is determined to desensitise us and enure us to absurdity, is in itself absurd. But it seems to be working. For several weeks now, needless rumblings of war with Syria have been growing. They are also chomping at the bit to get on with helping the Americans make a case for war against Iran. And mindblowingly, it is under the guise of their enemy attempting to build nuclear weapons. Yes folks, weapons of mass destruction. These Neo-con types will try anything twice.
Harper Land, With rising unemployment, exploding welfare rolls, recently exposed ministerial corruption, repressive crime bills, loss of rights, suppression of dissent, attacks on unions, frivilous court cases, a tightening grip on all government institutions, the leader's obsessive and insatiable need to solidify all of Harper Land's political power into the hands of the Propaganda and Misinformation Office or PMO, and the Harper government's guilty plea (and pathetically small fine) in a scheme that helped them steal the 2006 Federal election. The list is inarguably depressing and getting more so every day!

And their one complaint about this expensive (again, at least $500,000.oo) day of pomp and ceremony so far has been the MSM's rather milktoast lament that there has been no such recognition of the Afghanistan war? Is it ^NOT obvious that there should ^NOT have been any
such event even for this one?
Seriously? The main stream media is worried that the Afghan veterans did not get a real pony? Or that the new kid got the icecream? At least Craig Oliver of CTV asked, or rather, suggested, that "some" (he didn't say who, exactly) were asking:
"Just what are we celebrating here? The mission in Libya, or the (Harper) government"?
Feel the Raw Power!
Sure, it is loud, but they are not about to drop a bomb here.
NOT that it would hurt anyone if they did.
Canadian bombs only hit real targets, they never hurt civillians.
We have NATO's word on that!
"Conservatives cashing in on the Quick and 'casualty free' mission in Libya" ~ Roger Smith here ~ CTV That statement went absolutely unchallenged. But I challenge it now.
And, over at CBCNN, no one in the studio so much as blinked when John Ivison, a much too common guest on CBC's "Power and Politics" said of the Libyan campaign, simply that: "Nobody died". He stumbled on like he always does, in near complete agreement of all things Harper.
We all knew that he meant: No 'Canadian' died. But I have a confession to make. I blinked. That was not what he said. In spite of the pathetic fact that it has become acceptable in Harper Land to count only Canadian and NATO casualties. "No one died" is what he said and I blinked.
Sadly, we are not expected to object to this inhumanity, and might even be sanctioned for wondering why it has become normal to act in such a callous, insensitive and frankly, disturbing manner.
Are we to believe that those we kill with bombs are not human, do not amount to anything, are somehow not worthy of counting? Well, actually if we are to believe NATO, there really were no Libyan casualties. In other words, Nobody died. We are to believe that even though Canadians alone, dropped some 700 high tech missiles and bombs that no one not actually targeted, died.
The 'reported' number of bombs dropped in the (official) name of protecting citizens in Libya by Canadians is itself, unlike those bombs, still dropping. According to recent reports and again today by Roger Smith of CTV, the number has now been pegged at 700, with a total of about 1000 sortees and not the 1450 missions and 1500 drops that was reported earlier.
Harper's now 'arch enemy', the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, got a little closer to the truth, but not much. Terry Milewski, at least said: No 'Canadian' casualities. He at least seems to get that some of us watch these things closely.
If you think that I am exaggerating NATO's statements that none of the thousands of bombs and missiles killed anyone not targetted, I admit that I have been doing just that. Here is a video which claims the they have stepped up to the plate and admitted that all of those bombs actually killed nine civilians. I kid you not. Nine!
Of course that was reported by Russian Television:
So there ya have it. The Russians are saying that NATO is admitting to only NINE civilian deaths, but surely this is only the Russians. Harper has warned us about the Russians. Surely I was able to find evidence that they have been very open about these killings and that NATO is being more open than these Russsians (Who want our north, lol) are letting on.
Surely NATO is more open then that.
So, come on, proud Harper Landers, remember the Fifties. Hold your heads high. Celebrate war, and bask in displays of military might. Hang the Queen's portrait in your classrooms, embasies, legislatures, post offices, offices, government buildings, poutine shops, chip trucks, out houses, and barns.
Remember that a silent Harper Lander is a happy Harper Lander and that a Happy Harper Lander will wait forever for a good hockey book, and then pretend to like it even if they secretly know it is just another lie.
Speak well of our 'dear leader' for he has your best interests in his benevolent big giant head, he holds the future of your children in his very athletic hands, the very value of your existance in his strong arms and just like that kind old gentleman , Santa Claus, he knows where you live. Don't let that scare you. How else could he bring all that joy?
Bottom Line: The MSM stupidly says this is about honouring the Libyan campaign and ^NOT honouring the Afghan War heroes. Again, that is spinning bull shit. This story is about Stephen Joseph Harper strutting pompously onto the front steps of OUR House of Commons and absolutely wasting half a million dollars of OUR money so that OUR airforce could honour him.
Stephen Harper is a Royal Pain in the Assembly.
