In a "surprise" jaunt over to Afghanistan, weepy Pete decided to spend up some of those good, good tax payer dollars to visit the troops. Now that would be a fine, even noble thing were it not for the war mongering and politicking he did on behalf of Junior''s next war of choice. Using a Christmas visit to the troops as cover, the smug little fart took the opportunity to keep the war fires burning with claims of Iranian weapons flowing to the Taliban. CTV has coverage of the visit and quotes MacKay as saying: "Afghanistan has "very negative influences coming in from other countries -- Pakistan, certainly Iran in particular," he said. "We're very concerned that weapons are coming in from Iran, we're very concerned these weapons are going to the insurgents and keeping this issue alive."
I suppose in the wake of the NIE disrupting the flow of premium bullshit about the fabled Iranian nuclear weapons program, somebody had to get to spewing a fresh line of dung. And who better than Peter MacKay. Why, nobody would suspect Condi's sycophantic, milquetoast admirer of catapulting a man-sized portion of weapons grade propaganda. Consider this the first salvo in what will be a winter feces offensive. MacKay has now made a statement that will be repeated. He will of course keep muttering and yammering as he has been programmed to do but look for it to be picked up by the American slaughter porn fanatics. And the key piece of bullshit rationalization has already been uttered. With the proviso that Iran and the Taliban hated each other almost to the point of open conflict, all bets are now hedged on the 'enemy of my enemy is my friend' plan. Fucking yeah. Just like it worked in Iraq. Because the Shia and the Sunni both hated the American invaders so much that they put aside their differences and united their forces to fight the crusaders. Exactly. Bullshit.
Congratulations Minister of Defense, Peter MacKay, you have whored Christmas and used our troops to sow further seeds of discord in the world. After all, things wouldn't be complete without yet another mindless cauldron of slaughter and suffering in the ill conceived war on terror. I'm sure paunchy Steve tucked into his third, forth and fifth helpings of turkey secure in the knowledge that our troops were away from their families helping him play the tough on the world stage. Let me pose this question to the cock noggins running this absurd show, when are pissants like Peter MacKay going to address the role of the Saudis in all of this murderous folly? When is George Bush going to stop holding hands with the funders and bankers of this generational conflict? When are all of the tough guy arseholes like Harper going to shut their gaping pie-holes and work to bring peace to the Afghanis instead of more bloodshed? How many more Christmases will our soldiers be apart from their loved ones for the sake of political blunderers and buffoons, the fat of belly and head?
Screw you MacKay. How dare you use our forces as stage props for your sinister mission. So much for that Peace on Earth line, forget the good will to all men. Just another day, just another political opportunity to put one over. Fuckers.
