Perhaps the use of the word coalition was a bit harsh

Eh, calling people idiots on the state level just makes yourself seem dumb. Bush is an idiot, but I'm not sure what's idiotic about anything she's calling idiotic. And even if it was, you don't say that when you're part of the government.

Ya, I have know doubt that the PM will get an apology out of her by next week. The last thing the Liberals need is and other scandal right now.


What would the world be like if Canadians always said what they were thinking................

The CNN version is much better. When someone down south figures out we are just north of Montana we are going to be in big trouble.

Not very diplomatic and she definitely doesn't seem to want to progress very far in Paul Martin's government. Still, she is a member of parliament and she can say whatever she wants. There is the neglected principle that she can voice anything she wants in the House despite being a member of Martin's party.

As for missile defense, it really is something that is not going to work except in specific cases. Far from being a shield, it won't protect against the real threats against the U.S. and can be easily circumvented.

There is very little chance that a rogue state will be able to launch a ballistic missile at the U.S. without detection in which case there are conventional means to stop the launch.

Countries with lots of missiles like China and Russia are not going to be stopped by the missile defense because they have more than enough missiles to blanket the whole western hemisphere. The missile defense as envisioned by the Pentagon would not be effective against WWIII.

It has failed test after test. Its few successes have been in under very tightly controlled circumstances including planting a GPS in the nose of the target missile so that the interceptor can find it.

Terrorists won't have the resources to launch a ballistic missile. On the other hand, it is far more effective to simply plant a nuke in a container being shipped to a U.S. port. Millions of containers pass through western ports every day and not even one percent of them are actually physically checked. With odds like that, al Qaeda can use UPS.

Martin has been advised properly on all these points. His reasoning for proceeding is that Canada has to put an oar in the water as part of the NORAD alliance. The principle is that it's better to be in the same room as the nutcases with a chance to convince them not to press the button than to be on the outside.

As long as they don't figure out we are also just north of Michigan and New York I am happy
