Canada's Conservative government said Friday it is shutting its embassy in Tehran and severing diplomatic relations with Iran, which Canada says is providing military assistance to Syria.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said that the Canadian embassy in Tehran will close immediately and Iranian diplomats in Canada have been given five days to leave.
Baird, who serves in a government that is a staunch ally of Israel, said Iran is the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.

Too much chatter lately that an attack is imminent. They have to do something to disinform.
The US could be energy independent in a very short time. In two years or less the US could be independent on energy from outside North America.
If Romney wins, he will be able to immediately affect the price of gasoline and all other energy products, if he wants to. Three easy steps.
1) Approve the Keystone Pipeline.
2) End the "boutique blend" madness.
3) Start drilling everywhere, Alaska, the gulf, federal lands, off both coasts.
Would you like to be holding a lot of oil in storage or in the form of futures contracts if the president took these steps and showed he was serious about getting energy costs down? I wouldn't. The longs would start selling, the shorts would start shorting and the prices would collapse. As a bonus, the Iranians and the Russians would be screwed. Jobs would be immediately created and the economy would soar.
That embassy of ours in Tehran must be like a time capsule inside. Probably three or our inches of dust. I wonder what it looks like now inside.
Pretty sad when Canadas government is more Conservative than ours. WTF
my thoughts, exactly!! How said is that?
Of course, the dems DID want to kick God out of their platform and pretty much kicked Israel in the butt...
Probably not. Darn IPad 2.2231234
more than one topic LadyEleanor
I’ve been thinking the same thing.
Canada is now having to vie for lead Western Nation, because our Pussy in Chief, can’t pull his head out long enough to do so?
I used to say Obama is full of s—t. Now I just say he’s full of himself. Same difference, and I don’t offend anyone.
>>complacent like we were in 1979.
ZBigniew Brezinski is the POS whose policy funded and instigated the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
He and the Quisling Wabbit fisherman (Jimmy Carter) should be keel hauled, repeatedly - for this cluster frackus.
How about: “The phase of the moon is not important THOUGH it is best to fly the mission in total darkness.”
What I was getting at, the technology we and the Israeli's have are not affected by light of day, night, or anything in-between. That said, it is best to fly in total darkness though not required.
Great. Does Canada happen to have any aircraft or helicarriers? If the US doesn’t have our (Israel’s) back, we’ll take what we can get.
” And now even the tolerant Canucks have had enough? Or did they receive a word to the wise ...
Heh ...heh ...heh.
Did u just seriously excuse an attack on our military by a foreign country?
And yet Jewish people here in the US vote 85% Rat.Two countries,so close and yet so far away on at least one noteworthy issue.
That might not fly in our Federal courts.I'm a big believer in states' rights but when it comes to anything concerning energy (which,for us,*is* a matter of *national security*) all laws/regulations should come from DC and apply to the *entire* nation.
(Hear that,California tree worshipers,I just told you to go bleep yourselves)
Impediments and mandates to the refining process do nothing but add costs. The US and Canada have a huge advantage in energy costs compared to other nations. Energy costs affect every manufactured product. Labor might be cheaper elsewhere, but energy, outside of the mid east, should be cheapest here. The mid east doesn't count because they have virtually no manufacturing base and no desire to build one.
But I know one Canadian who would not object to a squadron of RCAF CF-18's and a couple of RCN frigates to help Israel secure your airspace and sea approaches. I know one president who would be furious, though.
unfortunately CBC would not want to preempt ‘little mosque on the prairie’ with bulletins about canadian agression against iran.
