A Message from McKenna by Expat
Canada's ambassador to the United States, Frank McKenna, has been working hard to correct American false impressions about Canada, but now he has a message for Canadians: Stop being smug and stop moralizing about what the U.S. should be doing differently.
McKenna is also looking to marshal the over three million Canadian expatriates who are currently living in the U.S. in order to aid Ottawa.
I'm American. Tell Frank McKenna that I think it's just fine if Canadians want to moralize about the stupid ass "war". If Bush wanted to go after the terrorists responsible for 9/11, he sure picked a funny place...where NONE of the 9/11 terrorists were from. Go figure. If we were going after the terrorists, we should've gone to war with Saudi Arabia, but oh no, mustn't touch our woman-hating Saudi oil barons.
I find it very unfortunate that the Bush administration has used the tragic events of September 11 as a golden ticket for so much of its recent policy, particularly the war in Iraq. Bush has certainly served to alienate America from many nations, and even his own people in some regards.
