As we all know Jason Kenney is a raging Cold War warrior, who is always going after the Russians, with his big mouth as his weapon.
To satisfy his inner religious fanatic, and pander to the ethnic vote.
And when he's not lying compulsively, he's always bragging about Canada's expanding power...

But sadly when the moment came to save Canadians stranded in Yemen yesterday, it wasn't one of those big-bellied babies who flew to the rescue.
It was the Russians.
The federal government is confirming that an undisclosed number of Canadians have been taken out of Yemen, amid Russian state media reports that the Kremlin had helped them leave.
Russian news agency TASS reported Friday that two Russian planes brought 284 people from Yemen to Moscow on Thursday including Canadian and Polish citizens.
So you can imagine how Kenney must be feeling...
Which explains why there was not a word from him about the rescue. And from the office of Rob Nicholson, now posing as a Foreign Minister, not even a word of acknowledgement.
Foreign Affairs spokesman John Babcock said in an email on Saturday they are aware that Canadians departed from Yemen safely.
Babcock would not confirm Russian involvement, but said Canada’s ability to provide any consular assistance in Yemen is “extremely limited.”
So much for manners, so much for class, and so much for Kenney's expanding global reach. Those Cons are indeed low creatures, and they do blow smoke out of every orifice.
But then what do you expect? When they can't even TALK about Yemen, because it's their ally Saudi Arabia who is savagely bombing that shattered country, and causing the Canadians to flee....
The situation is a humanitarian nightmare. The Russians are the ones calling for a ceasefire.
The United Nations Security Council is considering Russia's call for a pause in Saudi-led air strikes in Yemen.
The Red Cross has reported a dire situation, with the streets of the city "strewn with dead bodies" and the wounded "streaming" into hospitals and clinics.
And despite the desperate situation even Djibouti is able to get its own citizens out.
A Pakistani aircraft will fly to the capital Sanaa on Sunday to pick up 170 people. More than 800 Pakistani citizens have already left. Flights from China, Egypt, Sudan and Djibouti are also scheduled for Sunday.
While Kenney sits or squats on the tarmac with his big bellied friend...
And they're the ones who are supposed to be keeping us SAFER?
But then again, what do we expect? When this whole expanded mission into Syria has been mounted exclusively to please their rabid base, who want them to save the Christians in that country.
When we can't even save our own pilots if their planes go down there...
From the hands or the cages of ISIS.
And really what more can anyone say?
Except that it is a nightmare, it is a bad joke.
And they are Con clowns....

Who are prepared to sacrifice the lives of our flyers, and make us more likely to be hit by a terrorist attack, for crass political purposes.
And since that is as low as ANY government can go.
We really must get rid of those filthy Cons and their depraved leader.
Before they degrade us further...
