Canada suspended relations with Iran and expelled the country's diplomats Friday, calling the country's regime "the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today."

Canada action is reminiscent of Eastwood talking to an empty chair or the boy telling the Emperor Obama he has no clothes.
