"So many Max Fisher jokes to make, so little time.... "You'll remember with all the 'Iran talk' - all the wise people warning us that a war with Iran was inevitable - that standard neocon practice in encouraging wars is to warn us about them.

Socialists generally like their leaders to be closer to true believers than political whores. By the way, with Trudeau's namby-pamby pandering to the right (completely appalling in the the case of the recent Islamophobic fascist 'security' legislation), and the media talking up Mulcair's chances, Canada is headed for a repeat of the last election, where people vote Conservative in fear of an NDP-controlled government.
