Why? Because WE are good neighbors.

Here are some more of this liberal gash's thoughts... enjoy.


Linda McQuaig argues terror attacks are response to military actions


LINDA MCQUAIG

In the official, mainstream view of terrorism — the view trumpeted by western governments, think tanks and media commentators — terrorists are freedom-loathing zealots with an irrational hatred of our western lifestyle and culture.

But another view, polls suggest, is gaining ground with the public: Terrorism is actually a response to military interventions perpetrated by western governments.

These sharply diverging views are central to the question of how to deal with terrorism. Under the "irrational hatred" view, there's not much we can do other than ratchet up our security and hunker down for a long fight with a bunch of lunatics.

But under the second theory, some solutions may be possible. At least, it suggests we should carefully scrutinize what actions our governments are up to in the Middle East, to assess whether these actions are justified and, if not, to stop them. After all, if the actions aren't justified, we should stop them anyway. Right? Or should we continue to act unjustly — if that's what we're doing — simply so we can look firm in our opposition to terrorism?

The U.S. and British governments fear such public scrutiny of their actions in the Middle East. This isn't surprising, since any serious analysis would reveal a history of Anglo-American interventions that could best be described as imperialistic.

All this has implications for Canada. Under the "irrational hatred" theory, terrorists are just as likely to strike Toronto as New York or London, since we also enjoy an indulgent western lifestyle here in Toronto.

But under the second — and more plausible — theory, terrorists are less likely to strike in Canada, given our more limited role in interventions in the Middle East. We're supporting the U.S. in Afghanistan, but we've stayed out of the more provocative U.S. occupation of Iraq.

One of the few systematic studies of terrorism provides evidence that refutes the "irrational hatred" theory.

Robert Pape, a political scientist at the University of Chicago and director of the Chicago Project on Suicide Terrorism, has put together a comprehensive data bank of every suicide terrorist attack (315) in the world since 1980.

"(W)hat nearly all suicide terrorist attacks have in common," notes Pape in his book, Dying to Win, "is a specific secular and strategic goal: to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces from territory that the terrorists consider to be their homeland." Pape also observes that once a military occupation ends, the suicide terrorism tends to stop.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair went to great lengths last week to suggest that the recent London bombings weren't connected to Britain's role in the occupation of Iraq, but rather to irrational hatred of western culture.

Really?

If you attack your neighbour, kill several of his family members, ransack his house and steal his car, is it logical to conclude that your neighbour is in a rage against you because he doesn't like how you dress and what movies you enjoy watching?

An estimated 500,000 of these U.S. guns are stolen every year, generating a huge pool of illegal weapons just south of the world's longest undefended border.


I'd like to know which anti-gun group they got that estimate from. They could probably use hard numbers from crime reports, but they wouldn't be as spectacular.

Surreal world

Canadians becoming Prisoners to Liberal government spin



By Link Byfield -- Calgary Sun


Maybe it's just me, but I get a surreal feeling these days about the country we live in. There's a disconcerting disconnection from reality.

Sometimes it seems like that 1960s British TV show -- The Prisoner -- where everyone lives on a comfortable island, everything is managed by experts who pry into our secrets, and nobody can escape.

For example, our headlines tell us, "Gun registry makes progress," "Murders down, says Statscan," and "Violent crime drops further."



You're in good hands, folks. With gun control, we Canadians have a "culture of safety."

Toronto, meanwhile, witnessed seven shootings this week in 24 hours. There were guns going off in streets and parking lots from Etobicoke to Scarborough.

Toronto Mayor David Miller blamed the mayhem on the Americans, for letting too many illegal pistols come to Ontario.

Other than this week's blood-letting, said Mayor Miller, the crime rate is coming down.

Ontario Liberal MP Paul Devillers told the same thing to a Rally for Justice at the Manitoba Legislature earlier this month.

"Violent crime is not increasing," he insisted, "it is decreasing."

Maybe. The official report shows the rate dropping less than 1% a year since its all-time high in 1992. But it's still well over triple the level of the early 1960s.

There were 20 crimes committed per police officer then; today there are 43.

There used to be one major crime organization in Canada -- the Mafia. Now there's a veritable Disunited Nations array of them, terrorizing neighbourhoods.

Whatever these people may say, Canada has a serious and growing gang problem. But nobody in charge seems willing to admit it, let alone deal with it.

"Dealing with it," of course, would require a few changes.

For example, we might have to reconsider our new policy of letting over half of our criminals serve their whole sentence at home.

We might have to take all that money we now spend registering hunters, and redirect it to catching and incarcerating law-breakers.

We might have to admit the real rate of repeat offences (recidivism) is four or five times higher than the 10% claimed all these years by Corrections Canada.

We might have to admit Canada's per-capita violent crime rate is now twice as high as the Americans. (Why no federal advertising campaign about this?)

Canadian liberals like to cluck their tongues about how fascist the Americans are for having the highest rate of incarceration in the world.

Our incarceration rate is much lower, not because we have less crime but because we catch the bad guys and let them go.

Is it any wonder our annual violent crime rate is now about 1,000 incidents per 100,000 population, and in the U.S. it's 510?

Could it be because they put their bad guys in jail?

This same disconnection from reality afflicts us in other ways, not just crime.

Ottawa's latest bright idea is to declare war on fat.

There is surprisingly little evidence the new "obesity" crisis, if it exists at all, is doing much actual medical harm.

Nor is there any reason to think that even if it is, the government is going to fix it.

Yet they're off on the campaign, setting up committees, browbeating provinces and hiring ad agencies. (I wonder where?).

The same was true of the Kyoto boondoggle, about which Ottawa is still nattering at us on television.

First, we committed to a CO2 target we couldn't reach.

Then, we poured scorn on the Americans for staying out and not "doing their part for the Earth."

Then, we increased our carbon emissions even more than them.

Then, most of Ottawa's technical staff quit because the program is impossible.

Now, the emerging scientific consensus elsewhere is that solar fluctuations, not man-made CO2, are the main cause of climate warming, so Kyoto is a waste of effort and money.

I want off the island.

It may be pleasant, but I can't stand it.

I am right there with you ... I visited Victoria BC at the end of my Alaskan cruise a couple years ago and - with the exception of the stupid gun laws - I could live there. It's hip, clean and beautiful.

Just a note to those who don't know, the Western Canadian provinces (with the possible exception of Vancouver) don't agree often with the eastern liberals (sound familiar?) and are the ones openly defying the gun registration schemes the Toronto liberals think up and implement.

I thought Michael Moore said people felt safer over there! I mean, in Bowling for Columbine, he noted that people left their doors unlocked in big cities! He said that violent crime was almost unheard of in Canada! He lied to me? I'm hurt.

Reading that article gave me a headache. I think I lost about 500 brain cells on that one.

On one hand she says, "Gun control has been quite effective in Canada, just as it's been effective elsewhere". Then she bemoans the rise in gang-related gun violence and "(Canada's) relatively lax enforcement of existing gun control laws and border controls."

In the end she's just another socialist that thinks throwing a buttload of money at the poor will solve all of their problems.

Stay in Canada, b1tch!

WRONG!!! Gun Control has been blindingly effective in all three countries. Law-abiding citizens are now being disarmed. Soon their homes will be taken (Housing Control), their cars will be taken (Pollution Control), their food will be taken (Weight Control), their money will be taken (Wealth Control), their Children will be taken (Population Control) and if they try to fight it, their lives will be taken (Security Control).

Where exactly do government and media people come from then? They're just nice, normal people until they get these jobs, then they get sent to Shithead Camp? They recruit them on foreign worker visas from Dumbfuckistan?
