The dwindling population of Realityville

Babble on.

The MSM won't soon be giving you a piece chock-full of actual, y'know, facts about Canada's involvement in Afghanistan. Like this one, which concludes with a statement not enough Canadians understand.

No matter how comfortable people are inside our borders at the moment, they should realize that the world has become a much more dangerous place, particularly since the collapse of the Soviet Union. You can stick your head in the sand and just not look at the problem, but you'll probably get your ass shot off. (Babbler's bold)

My question is when some intrepid reporter is going to call Jack Layton on the bullshit he's talking. You now have a primer, ladies and gents of the media. Educate yourselves and then start educating the public.

In other words, do your job.

Babble off.

Layton is a bit of a puzzle, that's for sure. The article you site is from January though, and yesterday I saw Layton on CPAC. He said the he only wanted a debate on what comes after this commitment is finished and he didn't want to wait until the last minute to discuss what comes next (which is a much more reasonable position). So, either he is "evolving" or someone sat him down and told him the facts.

Gawd, I hope so Greg.

It's not enough. We need a debate, but the debate is one where those who oppose our efforts in Afghanstan (and elsewhere) are require to explain and prove their positions. Mr Layton (and others) should be required to state explicitly his position, and back it up with facts; no more "I have questions", or "we need to discuss this". At this point, any one who "has questions" about our role is dissembling, or is tumesently ignorant and not qualified to comment.

Lead, follow or get out of the Canada's way.
