"OTTAWA–Canada stood alone before a United Nations human rights council yesterday, the only one among 47 nations to oppose a motion condemning the Israeli military offensive in Gaza."
And then this;
UN Headquarters in Gaza hit by Israeli artillery.
I came across the article from the Star last evening while perusing the winged monkeys site looking for targets. In keeping with the usual theme over there, they were voicing support for der Party and it's position. No surprise there. I had to take some time to digest this, and try to analyze it rationally so I could make an attempt to write about it rationally. This morning, just before starting to write, I discovered the second article.
There is a lot to say, and I will start with kind of an odd thought, a line from our National Anthem;
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Question. Is that what our government is doing? Are they standing up for Canada and the values of Canadians? I know this issue has a great deal of varied opinions and views attached, but should we not look at the opinions being voiced around the World and be very serious when considering our government stood alone amidst 47 countries with it's position to oppose the UN motion? Are they so busy hunkered down with the billionaires and seeing visions of gold dancing in their heads, that they didn't notice even the Bushbots have stood aside in their unfettered support of Israels actions?
O Canada. O CPC Lords, I cannot help but feel you have lost your way, and you are dragging the rest down with you.
Then comes the news of yet another aggression against a UN facility, and not a minor outpost this time either. Perusing some of the disaffected Liberals blogs this a.m. reveals some who are questioning the sanity of Israel's Mr. Olmert. Not sure if they had heard about the UN headquarters yet. I didn't see any mention of it.
