John Baird and the Minister of Margaritas

I've always had my doubts about the wisdom of making John Baird our Foreign Affairs Minister, instead of the Minister of Margaritas.

But now I feel that even more strongly.

“Hitler wrote Mein Kampf more than a decade before he became Chancellor of Germany and they take these issues pretty seriously here. But it’s not just an Israeli question. The fear in the Arab world, in the entire region, the Gulf, and the entire Middle East is palpable on this issue. And it’s increasingly a significant security threat for the West: for Canada, the United States and our allies in Europe.”

Because although I loathe the fascist Iranian regime with every bone in my body, I much prefer to see it implode under the weight of sanctions, and the anger of its own people.

Rather than see us play into the hands of the monstrous Mullahs, and the hawks in Benjamin Netanyahu's settler regime, and trigger an all-out war in the Middle East. 

A war that would almost certainly plunge the world into a brutal recession, and inaugurate a new era of global terrorism.

So the last thing we need is the Con klown Baird ratcheting up war fever in the region when the situation is already so dangerous.

How dangerous? Read this terrifying story.

And then have a Margarita. Or three.

As the good doctor said in the last scene of The Bridge on the River Kwai.

"Madness, Madness." 

The Cons are already destroying Canada, please don't let them destroy the world...

hi Sassy...Baird is seriously out of his depths. Some of the best military minds in Israel think the idea is insane. So he is not helping Israelis, or any other people in that tormented part of the world. He's just parroting the words of the Netanyahu regime which is looking for a good excuse to deflect attention from Israel's other problems.
Also the fact that the fascist Mullahs are making such ugly and empty threats is because they are desperate. The sanctions are working, and they fear another revolution that could evict them from power.
Both they are and the Netanyahu regime are playing the same game. Trying to whip up their populations for political gain. And of course the Harperites are in there trying to stir up a war, so they can pose as Israel's best friend. When they are no such thing...
