Harper the Warlock


The commonly accepted etymology derives warlock from the Old English "oathbreaker".
The Conservative Governments rejection of its international obligations under Kyoto are driven by its ideological messaging that this was a Liberal policy, when in fact it is an international Accord signed by the government of Canada, regardless of the party in power it is binding on the Canadian State.

Not unlike the
Geneva Conventions, which the Harper government is now in violation of and is ignoring. Harper defends actions on Afghan detainees

But unlike Kyoto they cannot blame the Liberals for signing that accord.

Instead Harper like Bush is ignoring Canada's international obligations by deliberately confusing sovereignty with isolationism. Since the Bush regime has ignored both Kyoto and the rule of International law in regards to war by refusing to recognize the ICC. But the US is not signatory to either accord, while the Canadian Government is.

This must be what is 'new' about the Harper government, that it believes it can ignore international commitments made by previous governments.

Eugene, you know better than that. Harper thinks he was elected president in a republic. That delusion is because he keeps dreamingly and longingly looking to the South, well did, until the Dems just sent Bush a 'get out of Iraq now' bill.
So on Monday in our House of Commons, all opposition parties have a REAL OPPORTUNITY to send a similar message to Harper Pres - GET OUT OF AFGHANISTAN NOW. Just plain and simple - no fudge.

If Harper is really a warlock, let's see him turn Stephane Dion into a frog.

Whoops, too late...
