As the Ukraine crisis continues to escalate, and so does the warlike rhetoric in Europe.
"It is the fact that Russia is in a war state against Ukraine. That means it is in a state of war against a country which would like to be closely integrated with the EU. Practically Russia is in a state of war against Europe."
I'm glad to see that Obama and others in the U.S. are pointing out, that if you want to avoid escalating the situation further, and avoid a potentially catastrophic superpower confrontation.
It's vitally important that you measure your words.

I have no idea why anyone in the MSM would want to psychoanalyze Stephen Harper.
It seems something better left between a psychiatrist and his patient. Or in Harper's case a trembling shrink and his maniac.
But Paul Wells, who would be his Boswell and his Dr Welby, apparently could not be restrained.
And has made a desperate attempt to try to understand Harper's depraved obsession with Justin Trudeau

OK. I realize you are staring at that headline in disbelief. And wondering whether I've finally lost it.
But then so am I eh?
And I wrote it.
Because as bizarre, or as horrible, or as insane, or as obscene as it may be, it's true.
The situation in Ukraine couldn't be more ominous, with reports that some Russian troops have crossed into that country.
World leaders like Obama are calling for calm, refusing to call it an invasion, and ruling out military action.
The need for cooler heads to prevail has never been more urgent.
So what is our ghastly Con Foreign Minister John Baird doing?
Answer: blowing hot air out of every orifice, and fanning the flames of war.
With just three weeks to go before the independence referendum things are definitely heating up in Scotland.
Especially since the leader of the YES side was declared the winner of last Monday's TV debate.
And polls suggest the gap between the two sides is narrowing as the momentous decision approaches.

It was so beautiful and warm yesterday I wish I could have spent the whole day sunning myself on the beach, or swimming in Lake Ontario.
Because when I saw the lifeguard boys racing for home at the end of their shifts, I was reminded that summer will soon be following them.
Which was a really depressing thought eh?
Until I thought that maybe they were just racing to save Stephen Harper.
Because when it comes to the province of Ontario, he's definitely going under.
OK. Before I write another word, I want to make one thing perfectly clear eh? I'm biased.
I have ALWAYS had a very poor opinion of Peter Dumbo MacKay.
From the moment he was suckered into selling out the Progressive Conservative Party to the Reform Alliance.
And became Stephen Harper's hapless stooge, or useful idiot.
To the ghastly moment not long ago when he tried to smear the Chief Justice by accusing her of making an improper phone call she never made...

He thought he could disrespect all those dead and missing aboriginal women. He thought he could treat that holocaust as just random acts of violence.
He thought he could use his callous position to appeal to his bigot base.
He thought he could get away with it.
But today Canada's Premiers gave him a stinging slap in the face.
As you know I am increasingly concerned about Stephen Harper's state of mind.
Because it's pretty clear to me that he is showing signs of cracking under the strain of all those bad polls, and is becoming even more aggressive. Or even crazier.
For in just a few days he has managed to attack Justin Trudeau like a bat out of hell.
Rant and rave about how the elitist conspiracy is out to get him.
All but declare war on the Russians.
And now he's going after the MEDIA !!!!.
Well there he was, thundering over the tundra, on the last day of his Great Photo-Op Tour of the North.
Declaring that the greatest threat to his beloved Arctic are the Russians.
An emboldened Russia is a threat to it neighbours in the Arctic and Canada must be ready to respond to any Russian incursions in the region, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday as he ended his yearly tour of Canada's North.
And suggesting that only a strong military, under his strong leadership, can save the people who live in the True North Strong and Free.
His True North...
