Travelling around the world of Liberal blogging pundits recently has been less than gratifying as most seem intent on garbling on about one bit of nonsense or another, except for the Mound of Sound guy who has done some earnest pieces on Afghan.
As many of the rest avoid anything that could be seen as even remotely relevant, to anything at all, some have chosen to have a yak about Stylish Steve's latest comments on the Afghani situation. Well, it seems ole Stevie buddy said we ain't a gonna win that there war by military means alone. Ya ok Stevie, anybody who knows his ass from a hole in the ground, knew that you don't win no war like that. The West only intended to fight another limited engagement action from the bastions, supplemented by occassional forays.
So what's the big surprise and why the whoopla? Every real Liberal has criticized Canadian involvement in Afghan, so why make a fuss when the Stylish One sends a signal that they are somewhat ready to stop lying to Canadians on this issue?
Don't criticize him, commend him here. Tell him, yes Denny, youse been a good boy. Your nose won't grow today.
Looking down the road, it appears that the Afghan pipeline scenario isn't such a high priority any longer. Neither are all those other lofty aspirations that were held out as justification. Well they never were actually, so let's just dispense with the bullshit once and for all.
Now, it's time to posture appropriately. Let Stevie posture us out of Afghan. Someone has or will load appropriate data before loosing him on the minds of mush.
Iggy will need his wife to orchestrate the vagueness of something of a position, and market her Stately commodity. She's got him this far. Sure as hell ain't his accumen, accuracy and astute powers of observation and analysis.
