Nothing ever comes out in a good way when diplomacy fails.
This government is sending a clear message. Canada does not approve Iran's policies and considers them a threat. By closing the diplomacy bridges,
not only do we put ourselves in the same position than those who are waiting to declare open war, but we show to the world that we support military
action over talks.
The pawns are slowly being placed across the checkerboard. Unless Iran becomes absolutely transparent regarding their nuclear facilities, which I
doubt, war is imminent. Most probably after the U.S. elections.
What bugs the heck out of me, in this situation, is that I don't really comprehend the reasons behind Harper's decision. While it is claimed that is
it because Iran is a threat to world peace, I tend to believe that the real agenda is somewhat different and is proactive in its support of the
corporate and military industrial complex.
And THAT, is not the Canada I grew up in.
