Stephen Harper and the Mauling of the Military
He did so love to play soldier. For years he posed as a Great Warrior Leader.
He ordered our troops into the most dangerous part of Afghanistan without the proper equipment. He spent $20 billion dollars, cost us and the Afghans so many lives. He covered up torture, but still lost the war.
Then when he realized it wasn't winning him votes, he cut and run like he said he never would. He betrayed our wounded soldiers, cheated older veterans out of their pensions.
And now there will be no new armoured cars for the troops.
And no parkas for the cadets.
Military budget cuts are leaving cadets out in the cold, with a freeze on the purchase of parkas just as winter kicks in. A $2-million chop to the outfitting budget also means some of Canada’s 53,000 cadets will have to recycle and swap used uniforms, and to forgo military-issue gym gear.
The clothing crunch comes as the Canadian Forces are being ask to tuck and trim everywhere to help the Harper government slay the federal deficit by 2015.
Just so he can get a pot of money to bribe some key voters in the next election...
And all I can say is how cheap is that grubby little man? And how shameful his foul Cons.
Who would put their crass political interests before the needs of our soldiers, and the comfort and dignity of some of Canada's most idealistic young people. In a country as cold as this one.
And make us look like a Banana Republic.
But then why should anyone be surprised eh? When for Great Warrior Leader it was never about supporting our troops. It was always about supporting HIMSELF.
And his ghastly legacy is a trail of death and destruction, and the mauling of our proudest military traditions.
After almost two decades of service to Canada and the world, the Pearson Centre, formerly known as the Pearson Peacekeeping Centre, is shutting its doors this month. The Centre was established in 1994 by the Government of Canada and became the flagship of the nation’s commitment to UN peacekeeping, providing world-class training to peacekeepers from Canada and around the globe.
For he would destroy everything noble and decent and Canadian he touches...
Make an absolute idiot out of himself, and disgrace us all in the eyes of the world.
Cadets ATTEN-SHUN !!!!!
Meet Stephen Harper. NOT a Great Warrior Leader. Not a great Canadian leader either.
Just a poseur, a fraud, a grubby Con.
A miserable little wanker.
And a wonky WIENER...
