Justin Trudeau, the New Military Mission, and the Madness of Rona Ambrose
Now I understand why Justin Trudeau took his time before unveiling our new military mission in Iraq and Syria.
For it was worth the wait.
It's far more rational and sophisticated than the Con's one dimensional bombing mission.
Much bigger than Rona Ambrose had hoped.
And far more Canadian.
Canada’s fighter jets will end combat operations within the next two weeks and be replaced by an enlarged and riskier military training mission and a new humanitarian focus on the refugee crisis engulfing the region.
For not only will we end our largely symbolic bombing campaign, and stop killing people including innocent civilians.
Not only will we increase our help to our allies on the ground, where the war against ISIS will be won.
We will also do more to help the millions of desperate refugees fleeing ISIS and our bombs.
The Canadian plan includes a substantial $1.1-billion in humanitarian and development aid to help countries such as Lebanon and Jordan cope with the flood of refugees. It includes $840-million for water, shelter, medicine and sanitation and $270-million for social services.
So although it still is a combat mission, for we will be sending our troops into danger, it makes much more sense than Stephen Harper's War for Votes plan....
But just don't tell his wretched stooge Rona Ambrose that, for she just doesn't get it.
Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose says it's "shameful" that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is pulling back from the combat mission against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, even as the United States lauds the new Canadian contribution.
"Mr. Trudeau likes to say 'Canada is back,' when in fact we are stepping back," Ambrose told reporters in Moncton, N.B.
But does have the nerve to call Justin Trudeau"shameless." Which coming from a Con is both shameless and meaningless.
She does have the nerve to claim that he is ending the mission, when in fact it's being expanded.
And she clearly doesn't know what she's talking about, as is only too clear in the following video.
Where Rosemary Barton bats her around like a ping pong ball...
And Ambrose is reduced to clinging to her solitary talking point, or her ignorance, like a drowning person clings to an anvil.
And what she seems to be most ignorant about, is why Justin Trudeau is ending the bombing mission.
For as we all know, she'll bomb ANYTHING...
Even though Trudeau promised to end the bombing during the election campaign, and unlike Cons, other more decent people and parties actually keep their promises.
But since unfortunately Justin Trudeau can't explain the main reason we're ending our bombing mission in plain English, lest he offend our glorious allies.
I thought I might try to explain why we're doing that to the ridiculous Rona in plain Canadian:
The reason we're abandoning our bombing mission is because killing people in foreign lands, including innocent civilians, is inconsistent with our Canadian values.
For either we have values or we don't.
Those who don't, and have the values of war mongers and would act as butchers of women and children, shouldn't call themselves Canadians.
And when she tweets garbage like this...
Ambrose, as usual, has the situation ass backwards.
We're not taking a shameful step backward from our proud traditions. We're taking a step forward in the direction of our proud traditions as peacekeepers.
Whether Ambrose likes it or not we are taking back our Canada.
And if she is so obsessed with raining down bombs on others then she should just DO IT...
But we know our mission.
Deploy electoral reform.
Reduce the Cons to rubble in the next election.
And drive those foul war mongers from power FOREVER...
