Breaking: Cons Helped Overthrow the Ukrainian Government
Lordy. And to think I didn't take Stephen Harper seriously when he claimed he was leading the fight to "liberate" Ukraine.
Who knew that he actually helped bring down a duly elected government?
For crass political purposes.
Or as others might say, was used as a hapless pawn.
Canada’s embassy in Kyiv was used as a haven for several days by anti-government protesters during the uprising that toppled the regime of former president Viktor Yanukovych.
The Harper government never fully acknowledged — during the upheaval or since — the depth and extent of the security breach, which has had far-reaching implications on how Canadians are perceived in the region.
And while diplomats wonder about the implications.
Some of Canada’s European allies, speaking on background because of the sensitivity of the subject, said the fact protesters were allowed to stay for so long and operate freely made it appear Canada was an active participant in regime change, and not just lending morale support.
I wonder whether those who used us as pawns were these guys...
Or these guys...
You know, the Right Sector neo-Nazis we are helping to train.
And if so how do the Cons explain this one?
Soldiers and police have been locked in a standoff with a nationalist militia in western Ukraine after a gun and grenade battle that left at least two dead. Tensions have been rising between the government and the Right Sector militia that has helped it fight pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country.
Is that a debacle or what?
And of course the biggest question I have is this one:
Is it OK under the provisions of Bill C-51 to help overthrow a foreign government?
And if not when will the Cons be arrested?
The Harper regime, doing ANYTHING to try to win the ethnic vote.
Making a mockery out of our once proud peacekeeping tradition.
And disgracing their country in the eyes of the world...
