Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird explained Canada’s preconditions for official recognition at a meeting with representatives of the opposition Syrian National Coalition in Morocco on Tuesday,the official said.

“He outlined the importance of rejecting extremism,the inclusion of minorities,and the importance of the role of women in a post-Assad era,” said the official,who did not want to be named.

On Wednesday,Mr. Baird will publicly spell out those preconditions during an address before the Friends of the Syrian People meeting —a gathering of more than 100 countries in Morocco’s Marrakesh working to bolster legitimate opposition to the Assad regime.

Meanwhile, our leftist President rushes headlong into marriage with the unknown Islamists in Syria, supplying them weapons as well.

Obama needs no such reassurance.

What an asshole.

What do you wanna bet that Daddy Obama spanks Baird’s hand for accusing them of being extremists and implies that he’s being a rich old white bigot?

Once they solidify their power base here in the US through the Muslim Brotherhood watch them turn our own weapons against us. It’s not going to be funny but you’re going to be seeing a lot of finger wagging and hearing a lot of “I told you so”s, especially when they start the Sharia hangings on the WH lawn.

Idiot liberals.

Obama is using our money and resources for his(backers) own agenda in middle east. Our currency is ruined as we fund it.

I'm sorry, but that statement just made me laugh!

But the Muslim Brotherhood has already rejected extremism, just ask the last three Egyptian Presidents, they'll tell ya.

opentalk~:” Obama is using our money and resources for his(backers) own agenda in middle east. Our currency is ruined as we fund it. “

True That !
And with the political theatre called “Fiscal Cliff” , the U.S.Armed Forces will be decimated , underfunded , and undermaned , and ill-equipped . And yet we keep getting deeper in debt with $.42 of every dollar we borrow is going towards interest.
Combine that with the 20,000 U.S. military going back into Iraq right now because the country is too unstable .
Include the Afghanistani President’s statement that the U.S. is the main reason there is corruption in Afghanistan .

The world is upside-down.
Yet our President continues to fund our enemies , acknowledging that the main rebel support comes from Al Qaida ;
I thought that was in violation of the National Defense Act to support known terrorist organizations... I guess not.
Our friends no longer trust us ; our enemies no longer fear us .

Well, that makes it official: Prime Minister Harper is now the Leader of the Free World. (From Obama’s first inauguration until the French replaced him with Hollande, I’d held that Sarkozy was the Leader of the Free World.)

I am one of Harper's harshest critics, on his profligate spending, and surveillance bills, but I will admit where he shines is Canada's new leadership on the world stage.
