You've been around and should know how confused I get, help me with this one.
This is where Canadian troops may have been sent by Harpers goverment.....
I cant help thinking for his own glorification on the world stage....
I understood that the UN was looking for about three thousand soldiers
from various countries. If Canada only sends a portion of that, how does Canada or Harper get glorified? I can see a little appreciation for helping
out, but glory?
As well as to bolster western hedgemony on the Conitinent.....
To bolster hegemony means that hegemony has to be there in the first
place. I didn't think the west had predominant control or influence over Africa. China is influential, so is Al-Qaeda. Is the west really running
the show in Africa?
The french will likely make short work of these forces, but to what end?
We haven't done very well in making any kind of work, short
or otherwise, of the Islamist forces anywhere. Why here? And if the French can do it, I propose putting them in charge of a US Division or two and
letting them clean up the entire Middle-east.
Social justice is the only thing that will really stop the fighting by rebels all over the planet...and this is highly unlikely
Would you tell me, fairly specifically if you can, what "Social Justice" means? It's used all over the world and seems to mean
nice things, but it's awfully vague.
