One of the things that worries me the most about Stephen Harper is the way he loves to play soldier, or Great Warrior Leader. One day he's Stalin, the next day he's Harpo of Kandahar, and the next moment he's Napoleon.
Because what else could explain this egomaniacal eruption?
“And history will record this: that it was the good work of Canada’s Armed Services – your work – working with our allies, that enabled the Libyan people to remove Gaddafi from power.
“Last week a NATO official told the world's press that Canada had indeed, and I quote, ‘punched above its weight’
“That’s what others say.
“This is what I say:
“Soldier for soldier, sailor for sailor, airman for airman, the Canadian Armed Forces are the best in the world.
“Congratulations, and on behalf of all of us, thank you and God bless all of you. God bless Canada.”
Jesus. Jesus. Gimme a break. I'm glad the degenerate tyrant was ousted, although that wasn't our mandate. And yes, I was cheering on the rebels all the way, because they're wildest bunch of freedom fighters I have ever seen.
But please.....raining bombs and missiles down on Gaddafi's forces was as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. So why is Harper puffing himself up like a blow fish, or a blimp? Trying to sound like
Gawd. Even tiny DENMARK beat us? We're right
Yes, yes, I know it's a well known fact that those who were nerds when they were young, like Harper was, often have warrior fantasies. Who among us doesn't know at least one little Napoleon?
But who can explain why he is quoting the hunchback Lichtenberg?????
"A handful of soldiers is always better than a mouthful of arguments."
OMG. Never mind. I'm sorry I asked that question.
Although I rather like this one:
Whom was Lichtenberg describing when he wrote, “Whenever he composes a critical review, I have been told he gets an enormous erection”? And of whom, you find yourself wondering, could it be true today? Hmm?
Because I can't help feeling that something horribly similar is at work here. If you know what I mean eh? Judging by his triumphalist speech, and his obvious state of arousal, I can only conclude that Nerd Harper likes playing soldier because it...um.... excites him. Praise the Lord and pass the Viagra !!!!
And to make matters worse, if that's possible, we're ALL going to pay for it.
I mean does anybody think that having our little Napoleon wander around the world making belligerent statements, and threatening to go it alone, and attack any country he feels like... with our tiny army... is going to make our country safer or make us more enemies?
And how many BILLIONS is he planning to spend on this twisted fantasy? Even as our economy is contracting, and he's preparing to slash social services.
Oompah. Oompah. Oompah. Was there ever a Canadian Prime Minister so ridiculous and so DANGEROUS?
All hail Great Warrior Leader !!!!!
Today Libya, tomorrow the world !!!!!
God bless Big Oil !!!!
God save The Queen !!!!!!!!
