Those dead soldiers, Stephen? Yeah, they're yours. Own them.
Once upon a time, Canada's commitment in Afghanistan was scheduled to be completed, well, right around now, wasn't it? February/March 2009? I'm too lazy to look it up but it sure seemed to be about now.
Then Il Douche pushed to have that mission extended until 2011. Yeah, that was Stephen Harper's doing. Hell, that was even one of his official accomplishments according to official fluffer and poster girl for leakproof, adult diapers Sandy Crux. And now ... oh, dear.
So let me put this as diplomcatically as I can, Stephen. From here on out, any dead Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan are yours. You own them. You pushed to have this mission extended, and now you're admitting that, well, it doesn't look like anything there is ever going to change so, in effect, you're getting your kicks out of two more years of dead Canadian troops because you wanted to play boy soldier and since you were too much of a pants-pissing little turd to go over and get shot at personally, you decided to do the next best thing and send over others to die for you so you could feel macho.
(And it's not like dead Canadian troops are even a bad thing, right, Steve? Apparently, getting the occasional Canadian soldier offed has its upside. But I digress. Onward.)
In any event, Steve, starting now, dead Canadian soldiers belong to you and you alone. And when (if?) we finally pull out of Afghanistan in 2011 and nothing will have changed, we can look back on two years worth of additional dead Canadians and we'll know -- yes, we will -- that they're dead because that's just one of the ways you got your jollies.
Two years worth of dead soldiers, Stephen. I'm sure you'll be very happy together. Well, you'll be. They won't. They'll be dead, remember?
Would someone like to start a list?
OOPSIE: Now that Fat Steve has openly admitted that we're not going to win over there, someone might want to wake up Papa Junker and clue him in.
CLASS PROJECT: It's interesting that Harper is only now figuring out that the "war" in Afghanistan is unwinnable. Wouldn't it be fun to go back and see who might have been trying to explain this to him over the last several months? Wouldn't it be just hilarious if it was, say, "Taliban Jack" Layton?
I have no idea, I just think digging up something like that would have tremendous entertainment value.
