Steyn did a column almost two years ago, pointing out some of the connections of number of recent Canadian PMs to Desmarais, familial and otherwise.
That column was the first time I saw the name "Sarkozy", too, since he made a trip to kiss the ring, er, consult with Desmarais, Total being the being the big oil company in France (the country, not Chretien's daughter).
I think Steyn said Sarkozy was "most likely" the next President of France.
If it was all about Oil the easy cheapest and best way(price) to get that oil was to accommodate and deal with Saddam and look the other way and or bury you head in the sand ....
The war was not about oil .. the the so called "anti-war" was
You are right.
Now go explain it to a liberal.
Would we have to feign an interest in hockey? Gotta draw the line somewhere...
Iraq for oil!
Next, we want Iranian oil!
After that we want Venezuela oil!
It makes sense if the Canadians have stupid people like the USA with it’s Democrats. They will believe anything that hurts our country.
Poor ole Chretien, he is not only ugly as sin he is also dumb as a box of rocks.
Thank you Anggapo.
That's the unfortunate truth of the matter.
Liberals who hate the US (and the West) more than they hate the terrorists all pitch the same BS—we invaded for oil. Well...where IS the oil? If we were there for oil, why have we removed a dictator from power, kicked al-Q’s a$$, and taken NO oil whatsoever from Iraq and not had a signifcant drop in gas prices? Answer: Because we’re not their for oil, you morons!
...oh yeah, if Iraq and the Middle East didn’t happen to be right above enormous oil reserves, these people wouldn’t have any excuse like this to make. Their treason would be exposed even quicker.
I swear, the “we invaded Iraq for oil” bullcrap is one of my biggest pet peeves.
So tell me...is Chretien French for cretin?
Now I will list all the times Jean Chretien has been right about something followed by all the times he has told the truth. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
There, fixed it. If it was all about oil, how come we're not getting any significant amount from Iraq?
‘Chretien’ is Canadian for ‘Scum Bucket’.
Also interesting that the US military brings at least some of its own fuel from home.
Not only that but we spent a fortune liberating that country!
Nous sommes des communistes, des socialistes, de Pierre Trudeau. J' aime Chavez , vive le Arjentina Libre! Vive le Quebec libre, Vive le Canada Libre!
I wish this idiot would just stuff a sock in his mouth and go the way of the moon bats into the Great White North nude , there to be slowly killed by blackflies and mosquitos.
I LOATH French Canadian Liberal Commies like Chretien. They make my skin crawl. They almost destroyed Canada.
“They almost destroyed Canada.”
*Yes, they almost did....thank goodness for Prime Minister Harper. He came along just when we needed him most.
some qoutes from Jean Cretien when he was prime minister—
*”I don’t know. A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It’s a proof. A proof is a proof, and when you have a good proof, it’s because it’s proven.”
*”Perhaps there were a few million dollars that might have been stolen in the process. But how many millions of dollars have we saved because we have re-established the stability of Canada by keeping it a united country?”
*”Well, that is free trade!”
In response to a question about cross-border drug trade, in a news conference in front of Bill Clinton, having misheard a question about “drugs”.
*”It’s like the story of the Hippo and the Zerba. That Hippo, he paint the stripe on him to look like the Zerba. But at the end of that day he still a Hippo.”
In response to the Canadian Alliance, and Progressive Conservatives creating one party.
*”I don’t know what is marijuana. Perhaps I will try it when it will no longer be criminal. I will have my money for my fine and a joint in the other hand,”
*”For me, pepper, I put it on my plate.”
about pepper spray against APEC protestors
*”To have a referendum to decide on the fate of the minority, it’s a problem. It’s why we have constitutions to protect the rights of the minority. It’s why we have the Charter of Rights. So if it is always the majority vote by referendum, who will defend the minorities?”
*”I don’t know. What happened? If you don’t know, The cameras were there. Some people came in my way, it might have been... I had to go, so if you are in my way, I am walking. So I don’t know what happened. Something happened to somebody who should not have been there.”
When asked for his explanation as to why he grabbed the demonstrator’s neck.
*When you’re a mayor and you have a problem you blame the provincial government. If you are provincial government and you have a problem you blame the federal government. We don’t blame the Queen any more, so once in a while we might blame the Americans.
Thanks for my morning laugh, folks.
