That's The Sound Of...

"Liberal defence critic John McKay said he was worried about handing too much control over Canadian capabilities to the U.S. "The thing that comes to mind immediately is the vulnerabilities that come with sharing your sovereignty with the Americans, which is essentially what you're doing," he said.

By participating in such a program, he said, there's a risk of making Canada more likely to become involved in future U.S. military operations."

How in hell does Canada participating in a Western allied comm. satellite program "share sovereignty with America"? If the Conservatives wanted to have a multi-billion dollar program of Canadian-owned, Canadian-access-only satellites, these Liberals would be the first ones squawking about the unnecessary much higher cost of a Canada-only satellite network. "Why isn't the Conservative Govt looking at a shared network, with shared costs?" would be the first words out of the mouths of their two-faces.

Using that fallacious logic, Canada's bilateral NORAD membership and multilateral NATO membership are also "sharing sovereignty".

Then, there's the facet of anything in which Canada works with the US is inherently bad and suspect. That's not statesmanship, it's base pandering to the tiresome thread of anti-Americanism that unfortunately exists in certain Canadian areas. Going postal, indeed.

Well, you know, according to our lefties, anything the Yanks do, we must do the polar opposite in order to assert our independence. If that's not complete dependence on American policy, I don't know what is. If America does A we must do B, ergo, we are completely dependent on whatever the American position might be. Leftie logic at its finest.

And besides, we all need a bit of comic relief once in a while. What else are the Liberals good for? Rise up, Canada! Rise up!
