The Incredible Shrinking Steve Harper
Golly. If Stephen Harper's stature on the world stage keeps shrinking we're going to have to swap that magnifying glass for a microscope eh?
Yesterday we found out how low he has sunk. When the New York Times accused him of muzzling scientists in a monstrous attempt to "guarantee public ignorance."
Today we found out how small he has shrunk.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper struck a skeptical chord on any “so-called rapprochement” at the United Nations between the United States and Iran, just hours after the U.S. president held out what observers saw as an olive branch to the Iranian leadership.
Because there he was, disappointment written all over his face, throwing cold water on one of the best hopes for peace in that region we've seen in ages. Lecturing Obama in a ridiculous manner.
“I certainly would not fault President Obama and our allies for trying, but my sincere advice would be when it comes to the government of Iran we should carefully monitor deeds far more than words.”
Or just being SCEPTICAL, like surprise surprise, the Likud hawks in Israel.
Because Benny Netanyahu is VERY disappointed.
He wants Obama to BOMB Rouhani not talk to him.
Because he's a crazy warmonger eh?
Are these people professionals? Are they seriously concerned about Iran? Do they honestly believe that no one in the Islamic Republic can ever be safely trusted—or, alternatively, are they genuinely concerned that Iran’s leadership change its ways and be brought back into the community of nations? If the answer to any of those questions is “yes”—then what on earth were they thinking?
And as we all know, what Benny wants Steve is only too willing to surrender...
His ass, his dignity, and OUR honour.
Because once we were a force for peace in the region, and proud members of the United Nations, that we helped create.
But now we're led by a Likud bum boy, who likes to give the U.N. a chubby finger. Even if it makes Canada look even more like a pariah nation.
Foreign-policy experts say Canada's actions at the UN have done its reputation more harm than good. "Canada couldn't get elected dogcatcher at the United Nations today," said Ian Smilie, who chairs the Diamond Development Initiative.
"I don't think any of us could have imagined even three or four years ago that Canada would be in the doghouse as much as it is in relation to the United Nations," Smilie said.
And makes Great Stooge Leader look even more diminished...
Or even more of a MANIAC.
And of course leaves us cringing at the idea of John Baird addressing the General Assembly.
Because that could be really ugly AND embarrassing eh?
And of course leaves me wondering what happened to our once big and proud country? How low have we fallen?
How did a grubby little man like Stephen Harper ever become a Canadian Prime Minister? And will those ghastly Cons EVER stop shaming us in the eyes of the world?
Oh well, the good news is this latest shabby episode will only make Harper look even more pathetic, even more of a loser. And we will use the burning humiliation of today, to motivate Canadians to take their country back tomorrow.
We will defeat that foul Con regime, and its tiny shameless leader.
If the police don't arrest him before the next election.
And one of the captive kittens in his basement doesn't get him first...
