The Canada Saudi Arabian war of 2018!

Post by Milo » Mon Aug 06, 2018 8:40 pm

Lots of talk for years about taking the KSA to task about their human rights record. Someone finally took a stand: Canada!

Don't forget to go to "war" against Iran too. It's only fair.

.....and promptly got booted in the arse for its trouble.

It does not pay a relatively small player like Canada to do diplomatically the equivalent of poke its chin out and invite the other party to take a swing.

Got booted in the arse by whom? Folks everywhere who care about opposing Islamic savagery applaud the courageous Canadians.

They are a moderately important trading partner but we don't need their oil. And they are certainly bankrolling extremism here, as they do everywhere. Overall I call it a win.

I heard that Trudeau is going to challenge the Saudi king to a dance off.

Trudeau, determined to win, has been in intense training

Trudeau is just a babe in the woods when it comes to dance diplomacy with the Saudis. Bush was the real master -
