Take Bob Rae’s speech this week to the Canadian Club. He ripped into the Tories for “perverting” our foreign policy. This barely a week after Kinky Bob enabled the government to extend the Afghanistan mission until 2014.
When this inconvenient truth was presented to him by skeptical listeners, Kinky Bob huffed and puffed about how we had to listen to diplomats and NATO. No mention of the fact that the people who provide Bob with an office want no part of the mission.
Even former head cheese Stephane Dion can’t stomach Kinky Bob’s shaky logic. Ahead of the parliamentary debate on Afghanistan, Dion ridiculed the notion that training the Afghan army makes sense. Why train them, he said, when these are the same guys who sent the Soviet Red Army packing after nearly 10 years of futile war?”
