one little step at the time, and before you know it we'll have a US style dictatorship.
Brother, I lived in a communist country, and believe me Canada ain't commie. Not by a long shot.made Man said:Beats communism in disguise.
At least Harper has the balls to actually put his money where his mouth is... his first trip was to A-stan... and not just for 2 hours ala Cretien... also he didnt wear a helmet bacwards :laughing. Instead of the usual fiberal blabbering about non-issues.
no of course not. I'd let Afghanis decide who they want.If they want Taliban back, so be it..As long as they get a chanse to change their mind every 4 years, like we do.made Man said:There's no true communist country and never will be. Hence the "in disguise".
I also lived in a "communist" country.
A-Stan is NATO's "pet project". Canada just happened to have more troops there ATM. Or would you rather still have taliban as a government there?
Jester666 said:what I meant about Canada not being a commie country, is that y'know, free speach and all that.
Canada is more like Sweden or Finland really, we simply still care a bit about social programs, healthcare etc.
it's a great country to live in too. We all bellyake, but all things and complains aside, we have it pretty sweet. Nice roof over our heads, hot clean water, good cheap plentifull food, pretty much everybody can afford a vehicle, relatively solid healthcare system, pretty good schools(pricey though)
and so on.
when one looks at fundamentals-as in being well fed, safe, worm, free - Canada is pretty high above any commie or sudo commie country that ever existed in the history of this world.
I know somebody who runs a manufacturing facility in both China and in Canada. He says we are a lot closer to communism than they are.Jester666 said:Brother, I lived in a communist country, and believe me Canada ain't commie. Not by a long shot.
what do you care, you don't live there? since when did the taliban become a concern of anybody in can/usa?made Man said:Or would you rather still have taliban as a government there?
I don't buy that.. most of his ministers have a lot of political experience. Would you argue that Peter Mackay and Jim Flaherty are inexperienced? No way.. this is a Prime Minister that is micromanaging and essentially rendering his MPs as useless puppets.REVELATIONS said:As far as Harper goes, theyve had quite a few goof ups with the press lately due to their inexperience in the cabinets that the ministers were appointed to (execpt for Emerson) that somehting like this almost becomes a necessity to keep them in unison. Once the ministers gain some experience, I'm sure things will change.
Something to do with the whole WTC thing?radmtnbkr said:what do you care, you don't live there? since when did the taliban become a concern of anybody in can/usa?
and out of this what has changed? absolutely nothing...made Man said:I guess you prefer your women wearing dirkas, being beheaded for helping wifes of other men, being stoned to death if they were raped. The only reason why they managed that long is because they kept the population in fear. Now there's a new kid on the block with bigger guns,
yes it is and i guess that dropping 5 ton bombs on wedding parties is a lot easier than going after "insurgents", the taliban or whatever else plagues the afghan people.made Man said:I guess fighting someone who out-everything you is harder than publicly executing women at soccer stadiums.
kosovo, a uncontrolled region that was the gateway between the east and europe for drugs. when milosevic decided to end that game the full weight of NATO was brought against a small country and he was jailed for it. his crime was fucking with the flow of drugs and cash, not "ethnic cleansing".made Man said:Kosovo? There were 2 peoples wanting peace but not knowing how to achieve it.
please, nothing more than a photo op. when the mission is over the people will be abandonded and they will be worse off in the end.made Man said:http://www.combatcamera.forces.gc.ca/netpub/server.np?find&defaultjoin=and&field=Keywords&op=contains&value=Afghanistan&site=combatcamera&catalog=photos&template=results_e.np&sorton=IPTC - DateCreated&ascending=0&offset=0
browse that website for a little bit and you'll know why.
Just in case you wont.
Under taliban they wont even get close to a school.
Both sides did "ethnic cleansing". In Russia they had things on the news about Chroats killing Serbs, here it is the other way around.

the only reason anyone gives a fuck is cause the media has pumped it into our brains that they are bad and should be overthrown.
there are shitty governments the world over, why are we so concerned about this one? i find it an amazing coincidence that once the poppy fields were destroyed that the taliban suddenly became a problem.
i also find it a coincidence that now that uncle sam is there the poppy fields are larger than ever.
u.s. intervention in columbia, kosovo, nicaragua, afghanistan, honduras, guatemala, panama, and on and on and on. anyone recognize a trend here?
uncle sam is the worlds largest pusher...
