COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN SPUTNIK
As a Canadian, I am sorry for this.
But, in a way, such acts by our government are just public declarations of its weakness.
Canada is effectively a colony of the United States, and only a rare Canadian leader is able to work against America's stupid pressures.
Such a leader was Pierre Trudeau, late father of our current Prime Minister.
Justin, for all his charm and apparent decency, is simply not made of the same stuff as his father.
But, then again, American demands today are being made by a Neocon-led government at such a pace and intensity that even Justin's father would find himself in difficulty.
The world's bully just seems to generate unhappiness in whatever it touches.
