PURPOSE BEING SERVED BY CANADIAN FORCES IN LIBYA?

240 $100 000.00 apiece bombs have been used since Canadian planes have been in Libya.
1 300 have been ordered, 1 300 X $100 000 = $130 000 000.00

What will the extra 1000 plus more than replacement bombs be used for?
Canada's defence or facilitating regime change(s)?

Most certainly not as neutral peacekeepers, for according to reports:

Canadian frigate ordered to let ship full of weapons continue to Libya despite arms embargo
Experts say the incident raises serious concerns about NATO's application of the UN Security Council resolutions.
This means that NATO, and by extension the Canadian troops and equipment assigned to Canada's Libya operation, could be interpreting
the protection of all Libyan civilians as the selective enforcement of the arms embargo against only the Gaddafi loyalists.

Subject:  All our 'leaders' have to do is come up with a 'plausible excuse' to kill--and we follow???
 
Again we have been lied to by our 'leaders'.  Civilians in Libya are being attacked and killed but that is ok?  They are not as dead as if Gadhafi had shot them???  What NATO country did Gadhafi attack that warrants this attack by NATO?  How did we as Canadians allow our country to be 'leading' this murderous action against a defenseless nation?  How many more people will die from the DU used in these bombs, and yet Canada is proudly leading this massacre of innocents.  What have we become and how do we stop it???

Hello, Joe;

Some of your readers might be interested in my post "Why Harper won - and Canada's Parliament Lost: A Letter to the Globe and Mail."  I wrote it on May 6th.  It's perhaps even more relevant today in the light of Harper scrapping the public subsidy for votes cast (by you and me).  Thanks.

Here is the link: http://www.joergedyrkton.blogspot.com

Yours,
Joerge Dyrkton, D.Phil.

Inserting assassination squads into a foreign country to take out undesirables, and risking the collateral deaths of innocents, unfortunately sets a precedent which others may well imitate.  When hit teams from unfriendly countries start taking out American and Canadian VIPs, let's see if our publics find these missions acceptable, or suddenly discover them to be legally and morally appalling.

With Harper's majority tied with Ontario, only NDP has a stake in Quebec
 
Re "PM can calm Quebec fears," by Chantal Hebert (May 21).
 
PM Stephen Harper has formed his majority government by winning more seats in Ontario than all the seats he has won in the Western provinces combined and despite losing all but five seats in Quebec. He has finally replicated the performance of Jean Chretien who formed three back-to-back majorities by winning 100 of Ontario's 103 seats, despite losing most seats to the Bloc in Quebec and to the Reform/CA in the West. After sweeping Canada's most populous province, the Liberal needed only marginal seats elsewhere to form a majority.
 
But the Liberals took Ontario for granted and neglected the province that gave them three majorities. It must be strange that while the Liberals were pouring  millions of dollars in Quebec in the name of sponsorship programs, Ontario was facing a financial crunch. This is why the Liberals won only 11 seats in the last election. Unless the Liberals regain their lost grounds in Ontario, they might become an endangered species politically.
 
Unlike the Liberals, PM Stephen Harper understands that his majority is tied with his fortunes in Ontario. Quebec is of marginal importance as long as he can sweep Ontario and the West. However, for the NDP, Quebec has been crucial to its emergence as the Official Opposition. It must keep the Bloc out to retain its new position. In future elections, Ontario will be the battleground between the Conservatives and the Liberals and only the NDP will have a major stake in Quebec. If it can retain its new position, the NDP will replace the Bloc permanently as the voice of Quebec's francophone majority.
