One Lives In Hope That One Day, Canada Will Have A Proper Socialist Party.
Anything would be better than Jack Layton's Afghan Fantasy: "That Jack Layton’s trippy prescriptions for the ills that ail Afghanistan are less a persistence of noble left-wing internationalist traditions and more along the lines of black-leotard interpretive dance from a post-modern alternative universe will not be a surprise to anyone who has followed the NDP leader’s pronouncements on the matter. . . In all my visits to Afghanistan, the one firm conviction I have reached is that Afghanistan’s democrats need less 'help,' not more, from the country’s neighbours, and more help, not less, in the form of hard-headed solidarity and objective support from proper democracies like Canada. It may cause people like Mr. Layton to reach for their patchouli oil and smelling salts, but that solidarity must include young men and women, in uniform, with guns."
