The Wrath of God

© MMVIII v 1.0.2

"No American should be allowed to forget that Iraqi society has been destroyed. The people of that unhappy land have lost everything -- their homes, their schools, their neighborhoods, their mosques, their jobs, their careers, their professionals, their health care, their legal system, their women's rights, their religious tolerance, their security, their past, their present, their future, their lives." - William Blum, American writer

No Canadian should be allowed to forget that friendly soft-spoken Steven Harper, with his shifty eyes, sly smarmy smile and blue sweaters, has hands that are dripping with the blood of innocents.

The day he became Prime Minister, Harper enthusiastically joined the war on Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan and sent Canadian soldiers off to kill people who have never lifted a finger to harm us. Harper turned peacekeepers into peacemakers. Canadian troops in Afghanistan exchanged forest green uniforms for American desert combat fatigues. Harper restocked the Canadian Forces with weapons from U.S. contractors bought with U.S. credit. Canada joined the Coalition of the Willing (to be bought).

Today, because of profligate war spending, the invincible U.S. dollar is on the skids. Washington has taken unprecedented steps to bail out Wall Street with $700 BILLION dollars to "prevent a financial meltdown." But the dollar cannot be saved. The melt-down is underway. It is spreading like wild fire. Panic and fear have gripped financial markets 'round the world. The era of American empire has ended to the applause of people who are fed up with the bully on the Potomac.

If the current financial readjustment turns into The Great Depression II, suffering Canadians can well wonder if this is The Wrath of God visited upon the wicked and their supporters.

On election day, next Tuesday, don't reward evil or evil-doers.
