A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Deperation Redux

The Conservatives made fine, firm pledges of support to the Canadian Overstretched Forces during the recent elections. Now, faced with having to put our money where their mouths are (in the trough, usually), what have they done?

1)Re-affirmed the Liberal committment to the Navy by buying three more supply ships. To supply what and whom? We don't have much in the way of a navy at the moment. Of course there are some boats in the Persian Gulf . . .

2) Re-affirmed the Liberal committment to the Air Force in much the same way.

3) Re-affirmed that they don't think there's anything wrong with appointing a defence-industry lobbyist as Minister of National Defence, charged with spending National Defence money on defence-industry company contracts.

"In the great right of an excessive wrong" . . . Harper and cronies do something right, and it turns out it was all the idea of the previous government. Wonder if he'll give them any credit. Or kickbacks?

Harper and his cronies don't have original ideas; they steal from the Americans. If it turns out to be a Liberal policy, it's one they forgot to overturn on principle. Oh right, they don't have those either.

OT the navy still hasn't found that damn torpedo.
